    Seems to me like a simple shape that you can create with a handful of methods – Luciano Apr 4 '17 at 8:20

    @Billu G - you probably need to learn how to use the Pen tool. There are lots of tutorials online. There's a beginner tutorial here on youtube: youtube.com/watch?v=0B_IQK7hMo0 (I have no affiliation with this youtube channel) – Billy Kerr Apr 4 '17 at 9:50
  • @BilluG: please don't vandalise your own question. You can make an edit to explain your issue more in depth or add more details. But make sure the answers already provided make sense for future passers-by. For more info see editing a question or answer – PieBie Apr 5 '17 at 11:37

No lack of verbal fingers. But you get an answer, too. Draw it. Keep a copy of your shape as reference. It's tracing, but manually. The pen tool is not necessary in this case. Probably you learn something about the path anchors and their control handles. Without that knowledge the Pen is nearly useless.

Your shape was be copied and pasted to Illustrator from your question.

  • yes, I have tried and completed in first attempt. – Super Model Apr 6 '17 at 17:29
  • @BilluG you should learn PieBie's method. It's a general method for all drawings. Try it. I bet that in one hour you gain your Pen accuracy so much that my method starts to look hopelessly clumsy. When you're done it transfer "The winner" status to PieBie. so that other beginners choose the effective way. My method is here only because you seemingly do not know how the Pen works. – user287001 Apr 6 '17 at 19:24

Here's how to do this with the pen tool. No tracing, no shapes, no pathfinder, all of three points required.

  • Drop your image in AI and lock it so you don't accidentally select it.

  • Create the three points and close your path by clicking the first point again.

  • Convert all points to rounded.

  • Drag the handholds to give the bezier the desired curve.

    • Unlink the bottom handholds by holding ALT while dragging them.
  • Fill your shape with the gradient tool.

  • Done.
