Using a dark grey color draw a mouth. Next with the color white draw pointy teeth. Using the color #ff1054 draw a tongue.

Using a dark grey color draw a nose with the pen tool. Next with the color #ffb715 draw the ears. Using a gradient that dark grey that fades to none, set the opacity to 11% so it blends it well.
