Draw the rest of the head. Tim Burton usually has his characters very thin with a hallow face. (i guess thats how you'd word it..?? Haha!)

Now draw the neck and shoulders. I also began to draw the outside of the arms. The neck is thinner and the shoulders will be somewhat sharp.

Add a shirt. Mine has an oversized sweater. And ADD COLLARBONES!! It makes the character look skeletal, and Burtonized.

Add hair. My hair is curly, so I swept the hair to the side and put a few Burton style swirls in there. And i have very choppy bangs. Girl hair tends to be very long for Burton characters.
