Next draw the head on the left side of the oval and the rear part of the body on the right side of the oval.  The head should curve downward from the 'back' to a short point. The 'mouth' of our shark has a slightly concave line that is slanted a little to the right.  At the bottom of the 'mouth', a line joins the 'chin' of our shark, which then joins its 'chest' in an almost straight line.  Both the upper and lower parts of the rear part of our shark's body taper smoothly toward the tail.
