Don't be afraid to experiment and sketch lots of rough curves before neatly drawing any new examples which you construct.

Some curves get closer and closer to the $x$-axis for large values of $x$, whereas othes get larger and larger as $x$ grows. 
 
You could classify your curves according to the number of zeros and turning points, along with other conditions that you might impose.
