Step 6: Under Gary's other eye, draw two more long, vertical lines for the other stem. Tilt these lines slightly so that the bottom is close to the first stem. Make the middle of the stem narrow.
Step 7: At the bottom of the stems, draw a curved, horizontal line for the top part of Gary the snail's head. Sketch lightly at first. Don't overlap the first stem. This line should go behind it. When you get the line right, darken it. On the left side, curve the line down and to the right for the smile. Add a short smile line on the right tip.
Step 8: To the right of Gary's head, lightly sketch a long, wavy, horizontal line for the bottom part of the shell. Curve the right tip of the line up a bit. When you get the shape of the line right, darken it. On the left side, draw a short, curved line for the rounded front tip of Gary's shell.
Step 9: High above the bottom of the shell, make a small mark to determine the height of the top of the shell. Make a small mark on the right for the width of the shell. Connect the top mark to the eye using a curved line. Draw a curved line from the bottom of the eye to the bottom of the shell for the left edge of Gary's shell. Don't overlap the eye. Connect the marks on the right side to complete the shape of the shell. The top part of the shell should be round and wide, and the bottom part should be narrow.
Step 10: Draw a short, curved line under the mouth for the bottom part of the head. Draw a long, wavy, horizontal line below the eyes and the shell for the bottom part of Gary's body. The line for the bottom part of the body is made up of short, curved lines. On the right side, curve the line back toward the shell to create a thin tip and finish the shape of this SpongeBob SquarePants character's body.
