1. Near the top of the page, draw an oblong shape that resembles a lemon. Draw a similar shape to the left that's about half the size, then sketch two circles inside each shape. Add two more circles and fill them in to make the pupils.

For the nose, sketch a loose triangle shape with a rounded top. Draw the same shape pointing downward, then use curved lines to connect the two triangles. Use curved lines for the mouth and a few accents.

Use more dashed, pointy lines to create the jaw, then add another set of lines for the top of the head.
