How would you go about drawing a quack? What is a quack? A “quack” is a sound a duck makes. And the visual representation of a quack is a duck. In that case, let’s doodle a ducks head.

Use a combination of arc shapes, v-shapes, and curved lines to draw the front part of the ducks head. Notice in the example how all these shapes come together. You can, in fact, draw them with one pencil stroke. Or, if you prefer, you can draw the various shapes one at a time.
