    I don't understand the problem.

    are you asking how to do it, or if someone else can do it for you, or if it is hypothetically possible?

    sokrovenno,

     

    Such a task depends on how precisely you wish to follow such a curve with its (possible) irregularities, and how you interpret the (rather asymmetrical) width distribution and the colouring.

     

    Fewer Anchor Points yield smoother and cleaner curves.

     

    One interpretation would lead to seeing the curve as a short straight part from A, then a strong/sharp bend into a softer clockwise arc, then a rather long, narrow, and soft, S hape ending in B.

     

    For that, you may use four Anchor Points with the Pen Tool:

     

    1) Click A;

    2) Click or ClickDrag where the soft arc starts, depending on your interpretation of the strength/sharpness of the bend (if you drag, drag from the direction of A);

    3) ClickDrag where the arc meets the S hape (along the direction of the transition part),

    4) ClickDrag B (along the direction of the very last part of the S hape).

     

    The Spacebar is your friend: while you work on an Anchor Point, you may press it temporarily to move the Anchor Point about inbetween adjustments of the Handles.

     

    Obviously, you may go back to adhust Anchor Points/Handles, but Undo may also be your friend.

    If you just want the curve without gradients and edges, it's easily done with Pen tool. I can help you with that.

    Here it is in Illustrator CS2 format...let me know if that's what you were looking for.

    sokrovenno,

     

    Why not plunge into it?

     

    You may follow the suggestion in post#4, and even get the first part straight.

    This is not the correct venue to solicit free work.

    sokrovenno.

     

    Presuming you have Illy to help you:

     

    A) Bust click the Pen (Tool) in the Toolbox and start Clicking and ClickDragging on the Artboard, also using the Spacebar, and see what happens. You may start a new path by pressing the P key.

     

    B) Lock the image and start redrawing on top.

     

    You can do it.

    You can see the handles. Just pick Direct Selection Tool (white arrow without + in the toolbar) and select the curve. All handles are there.
