Draw a round head and a straight line body and 2 stick legs and 2 stick arms.

Bring it to life by drawing feet and hands. The hands have 4 fingers.

Happy face is made with 2 eyes and an arc for a smile. Add depth by making 2 little ovals or circles around the eyes. Make the eye balls beady.

For the mouth make a half moon out of the arc. Add a couple of teeth and shade up the inside of the mouth.
