The next character we can work on is a beautiful cartoon jellyfish made from long curved lines. You can start by sketching the head and the body using the same template as the one created previously. Next, create all small tentacles using more curved lines.

Then, draw two eyes using small dots and create a short curved line to form the mouth. Inside the body, duplicate the head and the body to form a basic patch. Add a dark blue color inside the body and a brighter version of the same color inside the patch.
