How to draw a turtle

In this lesson, draw a nice little turtle of your very own.


You will need:
- Pencil
- Pen
- Eraser
- Paper
- Colored pencils or crayons
- Ruler (suggested)


Jeff's Tips & Ideas : Use lightly sketched pencil lines first for the structure. After, use a pen to draw in the final lines. When you're finished, erase the underlying pencil lines to reveal your drawing. Then - color it!

 


Let's start! Follow step by step our easy indications below !

 

STEP 1

 

Draw a simple framework, composed of basic shapes. Be sure to keep your penciled lines nice and light. Later, you can go over your structure with a dark, permanent pen or marker. The penciled lines will easily erase with a kneaded eraser when you're finished. The cross over the head circle is helpful for positioning the features of the face.

Next - go ahead and sketch in the back legs and tail. Notice how the back legs are just 'mirrors' of the front ones!?  Simple stuff!  :-)
