Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Turtle (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small oval for the turtle's eye. Sketch lightly at first. Darken the line when you get the shape right. Add a line in the middle for the eyelid.
Step 2: Draw a line that starts at the eye, then curves to the left and down for the turtle's muzzle. Now curve the line up back toward the eye to create the top part of the mouth.
Step 3: To the left of the turtle's eye, draw the top part of an oval with a line in the middle for the other eye.
Step 4: Inside each eye, draw a tiny dot for the pupils. Above each eye, draw a curved line for the turtle's heavy brows. The brow on the right should curve down and almost touch the mouth.
Step 5: Under the top part of the mouth, draw a short, curved line for the mouth's opening.
