To draw this cartoon Green Sea Turtle 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: Draw two curved lines next to each other for the cute cartoon sea turtle's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines and make them thick for eyelashes. The eye on the right should curve more because the sea turtle's head will be slightly turned. Pay attention to the placement of the eyes. Don't draw them too far apart. The shapes of these lines should be similar to half-circles.
Step 2: Under each curved line, draw a small circle for the sea turtle's irises. The circle on the left should be close to the right tip of the curved line. The circle on the right should be closer to the middle of the curved line.
Step 3: Inside each iris, on the top, left side, draw a small circle for highlight/glare. In the middle of each iris, draw a big dot for the pupils. As you shade the sea turtle's pupils, don't overlap the small glare circles.
Step 4: Inside each iris, on the lower, right side, draw another tiny circle for more highlight. Below the eyes, near the middle, draw a small, curved line for the sea turtle's mouth. Give the line a pointy tip in the middle for a more turtle-like mouth.
Step 5: Draw the lower half of the cute cartoon sea turtle's head by first making a small mark below the mouth. Now draw lines that curve from the sides of the eyes down to the mark at the bottom. The right side should be farther from the right than the left side. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right.
