Drawing a shell can be difficult; the main trick is to try to keep everything proportioned properly.
Here’s how to draw a shell with droplets:
|Begin with a little trapezoid that’s pointing downwards.|
|Now add a larger trapezoid pointing upwards underneath the first one. Ideally it should be almost twice as high and a little less than twice as wide as the first one.|
|Divide the bottom line into fourths to make the next step easier.|
|Trace over the trapezoids loosely to form the shell itself. Instead of making a solid line out of the bottom of the second trapezoid, use arcs to make four bumps.|
|If you want a little extra detail, add three lines between the bumps’ corners and the first trapezoid’s bottom. Don’t connect these lines to anything; just have them floating in the shell.|
|Lastly add three teardrops below the shell to finish the design. The drop in the middle should be farther down than the other two for best results.|
