Step 1: Let's start by drawing the body. Draw an irregular diagonal rectangle with wiggly sides, make sure its narrower at the top and wider at the bottom. Now add several wiggly lines parallel to the sides on the body.

Step 2: Next, we draw the lower tentacles which are two antenna-like long apendages arising from the right top sode of the snail's head. Draw smal circles at the ends of the tentacles.

Step 3: Now let's draw the eyes. Draw two longer tentacles with circles on the end behind the lower tentacles. Make sure all tentacles face way from each other.
