Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Sea Turtle" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the front part of the sea turtle's shell. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a long arc on the left side of the circle to finish up the guide for the sea turtle's shell. The length of the arc should be a little bit more than the width of the circle.
Step 3: Draw a small oval on the right side of the shell as a guide for the sea turtle's head. The oval should be about one-third the size of the original circle. Don't place the oval too far to the right or the turtle's neck will end up too long.
Step 4: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you place the sea turtle's facial features later.
Step 5: Draw two small curved lines that connect the head and shell to form the guide for the sea turtle's neck.
