Creating Head
Draw a line, using freehand tool (F5) make it 35degree last node,

Then, make that line curve like this :

2. Click on the middle of the line 
3. Convert line to curve

Creating Tail
connect the last curve, with a new line.... not too straight, tilt it about 5 degrees

1. Using shape tool  
2. Click on the middle of that new line 
3. Convert line to curve

Connect the first node to the last node, so that curve turn to "close curve" , what is "close curve" ? it mean that you can fill it with color, effects and so many thing. Or just press Auto-Close Curve. You see that the last node with the first node connected and automatic closed. 

Now, create the curve for the body
