Step 1

Cool! Let's start with the creation of the head and the body. As seen below, the head, the neck and the body are part of a single shape drawn with one long curved line. The head must be wider and the body is longer (or taller).

Next, you can add the front legs using small circular shapes. Both shapes must be placed close to each other. The back legs are large and made from two curved lines.
