Step 8 To make the doughnut look more realistic we can draw another shape on top of the icing to make it look like it’s dripping around the centre part. Copy the icing shape and paste this behind your new shape using the pathfinder palette to delete the unwanted areas.


Step 9 If your shapes are a little rough and in need of some tweaking, use the Smooth tool, located in the Pencil tool (N) drop-down palette. Click and hold to make this menu appear, then simply drag the tool over your shapes to smooth out unwanted anchor points.


Step 10 At the moment, Mr Sprinkles looks a little flat so we need to add some definition to his body. We can do this with an inner glow. Select the centre of the doughnut and the main body and go to Effect > Stylize > Inner Glow. Experiment with the settings here, depending on your canvas size.
