Step 1

Nice! Let's start with the creation of the head using a large oval shape. As seen below, make sure this shape is slightly larger on the bottom and narrower on top (just like an egg!).

Step 2

Once you are done with the head, draw the body using a long curved line. If you look closely at the shape depicted below, you can see that the body of the alien is similar in shape to the one of a bottle.

Great! To make this cartoon character as cuter as possible, sketch large eyes using perfect circles. Make sure the eyes are close to each other. The feet are made from small curved lines.
