Begin by drawing a curved line at an angle, similar to the shape of a snail’s snout – and don’t worry about how accurate it is.
Step 1: Draw a circle/oval shape and extend it all the way to the bottom of the first line.
Start with the outside loop and work your way to the center of the spiral to make a snail shell.
After you’ve finished the shell, move on to the body! You can either start on the right side of the shell and draw the “tail” first, or on the left side and draw the “head” first, whichever feels more natural to you.
Draw the eyes and the mouth, including an U shape for the mouth and two more U shapes on each end. You can also add some details to the shell, but these are completely optional.
