To push the point, I'm going to make our smart guy an ant. He may be small, but he's got what it takes to win the day.
Start off drawing an oval for his head. He's about three heads high. Add a tilted oval body, two ovals for feet, and some circles for chest and hands. Join them up with sticks for neck, legs and arms. Oh, and since he's an ant, you'd better add some antennae.
