1. Start with a half-circle at the top, then lightly sketch curved, jagged lines that meet at a point at the bottom. In the middle of the face, draw a curved arrow pointing upward, then add two loops underneath to complete the nose. Use teardrop shapes for the eyes and loose, expressive lines for the eyebrows.
