When you are outside playing in the woods or fields, you might happen to see tortoises or turtles. This is a great time to (while treating the turtle kindly) to observe the turtle and get your sketch pad out to draw him. (Of course, don’t touch the turtle unless your parents have given you permission.) Turtles have a great pattern on their shell. This drawing tutorial only gives simple, basic outline drawing instructions. Maybe we will give a more advanced drawing tutorial in the future.
How to Draw Turtles with Easy Step by Step Drawing Tutorial
First we will make the shell. First, lightly sketch a circle. Then draw an oval shape over the circle as if it were a crown (as seen above).
Now if we erase the bottom of the circle where the oval crossed over it, then you can see that an upside down bowl shape has been formed (in the black line).
And now we have a turtle shell. Just draw a ‘u’ like shape at the top of the shell and you will be ready for step #2.
Now draw the turtle’s shell by drawing a sideways letter ‘v’ like shape at the back of the turtle’s shell.
Now draw the back foot and the belly of the turtle by drawing a sideways letter ‘T’ shape (highlighted in pink) and a sideways letter ‘J'(highlighted in yellow).
Now start drawing the turtle’s head at the front of the shell by drawing a backwards letter ‘c’ like shape.
Draw a circle at the top right of the turtles head. Draw the front leg of the turtle by drawing a number ‘2’ (highlighted in red) and a letter ‘L’ shape (highlighted in green).
Now draw the mouth of the turtle by drawing a sideways number ‘5’ shape.

Now you can draw the pattern on the turtles back if you want to or just leave the pattern off.
