Begin by drawing an inverted V shape or the letter A, but without the horizontal line in the middle. This step is pretty easy, isn’t it?

Tip: make sure that you don’t draw too darkly as you might need to rub some lines.

Step 2:

Next, you will draw a long horizontal line on the top area of the inverted V to make sure it is not very high and is also extended.

You should comprehend the illustrations well to get a clear idea of what is being drawn.

Step 3:

Do you know that you have already reached the end except for a few more strokes? You will take a start from either the left or the right side of the horizontal extended line. For example, let’s consider the left side. You will now look at the endpoint of the part of the line that is on the left and take it down in the form of a straight line and connect this to the bottom endpoint of the inverted V shape in the first step.

Step 4:

Now you will look at the other side of the horizontal line you draw in step 2 and stretch it down in such a way that it coincides with the other bottom endpoint of the inverted letter V.

Step 5:

Color it in!
