Start by taking a brown pen, and create a wide “U” shape at the bottom of the page.


2.

Now, add a “V” with a curved bottom to the bottom of the “U”, to create the cone of your ice cream. Then add a curved line to the top of the “U”, leaving a slight gap in the line towards the right hand side.


3.

Add a curved line just above the line you just drew – this should be wavy, to create the top of your cone.


4.

Add a series of “U” shapes all across this top section for a little detail…

And then add a slight diagonal line which goes from the middle of the left hand side to the left hand stem of the furthest “U” you have just created.


6.

Add a series of diagonal lines heading in both directions, to create a “criss-cross” effect on the body of the cone.


7.

Now bring another diagonal line down, roughly cutting the cone in half.

Take an orange pencil, and use this to shade in the cone.

Next, grab a yellow pen, and add a series of bumpy lines emerging from the top of the cone – there should be a line at either end, and on the right hand side, the lines should create a “reverse L” shape using a bumpy line.

Now use a brown pen, and add another series of bumpy lines above the yellow ones, to create your second layer of ice cream. This should have a wavy bottom line, which moves up into two vertical bumpy lines, one on either end.
