This time we are going to draw a cute cartoon turtle. Our step-by-step turtle drawing tutorial has 15 steps and is also suited for kids and all budding artists.
We will use basic shapes (circles, rectangles) to outline the rough shape of the turtle. With the help of the shapes, it will be easy to create the drawing with the correct proportions.
Sketch with a light hand at first as the simple shapes will be erased later.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
You can find a video version of this drawing tutorial below, as well as a printable PDF version.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Turtle
Start with a long straight line across the paper. On the right side, draw a small half-oval, and on the left, a big oval.
Draw two short vertical lines at the front and back of the body. Add two short arcs for the eyebrows and a triangle for the mouth outline. Also, draw a curving line on top of the tail.
