To draw this cartoon Sloth step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and 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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon sloth's eyes. Draw them vertically, not next to each other. When you get the position and shapes right, darken the lines. Shade the sloth's eyes except for two tiny circles that represent glare or highlight.
Step 2: To the left of the eyes, draw a bigger oval for the nose. Shade the nose except for an oval inside for highlight. The sloth will be hanging, so the face will be sideways.
Step 3: Above the eye at the top, draw a line that curves toward the right for the top of the cartoon sloth's head. Sketch lightly at first, and when you get the shape of the head right, darken the line. Draw another curved line to the left of the nose for the cheek and bottom of the head.
Step 4: Continue to draw the line on the right. Curve it down and to the left for the rest of the sloth's head.
Step 5: Draw a curved line to the right of the eyes for the cartoon sloth's face. The markings to the right of the eyes should be similar to the number three. Curve the line to the left so that it meets the bottom of the head.
