Step 6: Starting under the head, draw two lines that curve outward and then down toward the body as guides for Tom Nook's arms. Pay attention to where these lines begin and end. At the bottom, draw two tiny, vertical lines as guides for this Animal Crossing character's legs.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing.
Step 7: Inside the head, draw two small ovals directly on top of the horizontal construction guide for the eyes. Use the vertical construction line as a guide to help you space out Tom Nook's eyes. Use the initial lines as guide for the eyes' position and size. The eye on the left should be close to the edge of the head.
Step 8: Inside each eye, draw a line that slopes down and out for Tom Nook's half-closed eyelids. Under each eyelid, draw a small U-shaped line for the irises. Draw the irises close to the right edge of the eyes. Don't make the irises too small.
Step 9: On the lower part of the head, draw a small circle for the muzzle. Use the initial lines as guides for the size and position of this Animal Crossing character's muzzle. Sketch lightly at first to get it right. On the top, left side of the circle, draw a small, angled, triangular line for the tip of Tom Nook's muzzle.
