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

Step 1: To start, let's draw the head and face. Draw a circle, leaving a space at the bottom right. Draw two circles for the eyes and two little curved lines for the mouth.

Step 2: Next, draw the shell. Starting from near the top of the head, draw a big circle. Following the picture, erase and add lines for the outer part of the shell. For the pattern inside, draw a bunch of hexagon shapes!

Step 3: Now, draw the front legs. Starting with a slight curve at the top, draw lines straight down. Draw little half ovals for the toes.

Step 4: Draw the back legs the same way as the front, just without the little curve at the beginning. Draw a little triangle for the tail. Your turtle is done!
