Here I drew the lines on the faces, as shown (Fig.16). The ellipse brush gave me thick and thin lines, as shown in the image. I drew a new shape and placed it under the mouth and teeth.  This separated the head from the stomach. I then added a gradient fill and set the dark pink gradient Transparency to Colour Burn, and the opacity to 73% (Fig.17).

Colouring the body, I followed the same process as for the face and tummy, only this time I changed the colour of the body to a slightly reddish pink. Basically I was trying to achieve a jelly-like or candle-like substance, making him a wobbly-looking character; the result of long distance space travel, (and hence he needs milk to strengthen his bones!) (Fig.18).

I added a darker colour to his coiled tail (Fig.19).

The same process was used again here, but this time with softer and vanishing edges on the patterns (Fig.20). Here's how I created a vanishing edge for the wart pattern. First of all I copied the shape of the base object and set the wart pattern. I made another copy of the same object and pasted it on top of the wart pattern, and then this time I colour-filled with a black and white gradient. I then selected the wart pattern and the black and white gradient object (Fig.21).  In the Transparency window, in the top right corner, I clicked the arrow which revealed some options. With the pattern and gradient selected together, I chose "Make Opacity Mask" (Fig.22).  The resulting image below was the black side of the gradient masked, while the white part was being shown (Fig.23). I combined the masked pattern with the base object, and I then had a nice effect of a jelly-looking surface. Without the gradient masking, the patterns would be too solid-looking (Fig.24).
