Then, add a small, upside-down triangle beneath these shapes for a cute nose…

And bring down two lines, curving off to either side, from this bottom point. Add a long “U” shape underneath for a nose, and split this in half with a curved horizontal line.

Move to the left of the shape, and bring the line up slightly, before adding a tall, thin triangle. Continue the line just to the right of this.

Extend this line across and down, and then add another triangle, this time with a wavy line for the base, and another, smaller triangle inside this.

Now, bring a thin “U” shape at a 90-degree angle extending from the short curved line you drew earlier. From the top of this, add a line angled up towards the top right-hand corner of the page, and then flick the line down to a point, and back down to the top of the wing.


14.
