Now, with the help of a black sketch pen make two sleeping eyes at the top of the head right next to each other. You can do that by drawing two small, curved lines as shown in the picture below.

Draw tiny lines at the bottom of these eyes to add eyelashes.

Draw the nose below the eyes right in the middle by first making a cylindrical shape between two circles.

Make a small circle at the bottom of the cylinder in between and color it with the black sketch pen. Using the same pen, make light dots on both circles.

Finally, draw three lines on the sides of both circles. Observe the picture below for a thorough reference.
