Step 1

Great! Let's start with the addition of the head using a circular shape. Creating the head first is a good technique to help you locate and draw the rest of the body. Starting with the body or another part of the character can be more problematic.

Step 2

Next, draw the shell behind the head of the cartoon snail. Make sure that the shell is at least twice the size of the head. Add another long line below the shell to illustrate the tail and neck.

Once you are finished, you can add antennas using a long curved line and a small circle. Eyes are also made from circles, but they must be large and close to each other.

Pupils can also be drawn using large circular shapes. On the shell, you can draw a large circular line. Make sure that the end of the line (in the middle of the shell) is narrower and pointed.
