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

Step 1: First off, draw the shell. Draw a large half circle.

Step 2: Next, let's draw in the patterns for the shell. For the patterns, just draw a bunch of different shapes—like hexagons, pentagons, and rectangles!

Step 3: Now, let's draw the head and neck. Starting from your shell, draw a line that slopes around and down to form the head and neck.

Step 4: Now, draw the eyes and mouth. First, draw a circle. Then, draw a smaller circle inside it and fill it in. For the mouth draw two lines, one curved and one straight. Draw a little triangle for the tongue.

Step 5: Draw the front legs. Starting from just below the head, draw a line that comes down and forms the foot. Draw little pointy traingles for the toes. Repeat the same step for the other front leg.

Step 6: Draw the back legs. Draw a long line below the shell for the belly. Right after the belly, draw two curved lines. Finish by adding pointy little triangles for the toes. Your baby tortoise is done!
