Step 1.

Start with a circle for the head, and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw out the shape of the whole body like so, and then draw out the limb shapes too.

Step 2.

Thicken the lining for the head, and then draw curly hair, and beard like you see here. Lastly, draw out the honker of a nose.

Step 3.

Continue to draw out the curly locks, and then draw in the circles for the eyes, and ear like so. When that is all set you can add a mouth, some eyebrows, and then draw out the upper body of the cloak that he is wearing.
