Start your drawing with a black pen, and draw a “loop” in the center of your page. Bring this down in a wavy line, and add another “hook” to the bottom.
Now, add a series of bumps to the bottom of the line, heading down slightly as you go, and connect this to the bottom of the original shape.
Add a pointed triangle to the top right for a beak, and then a curved line just behind this.

And then add two “cloud” shapes to the top of these.
Next, add three “bumps” below those at the bottom.
Follow this with another two “bumps” behind…
