How to Draw a Baby Sloth - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: First off, let's draw the head. Draw a large circle.

Step 2: Next, let's finish up the face. Draw two ovals for the eyes and fill them in. Draw a slightly larger oval with a rectangle on top for the nose. Add a curved line in the middle for the mouth.

Step 3: Starting from the left eye, draw around it, then down below the mouth, and then up around the other eye.

Step 4: Next, we'll draw the back and tail. Starting from the bottom right side of the head, draw a long curved line. Add a slope at the end for your sloths little snub tail.

Step 5: Now let's draw the left arm and leg. For the arm, draw a line out that meets back just below where you started. Do the same for the leg, just make it wider. You don't need to worry about claws for these since our sloth is hanging on a tree!

Step 6: Draw the right arm and leg the same way, just add little pointy triangles for the claws on the ends.

Step 7: To finish up, let's draw the branch the sloth is hanging from! Draw two long curved, but still parallel, lines In between the hands. It doesn't have to look just like the picture, just make sure you don't draw the branch lines over the legs and hands. Your sloth is done!
