Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Biodiversity
How to Draw a Great Looking Biodiversity for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the biodiversity outline by sketching the sea turtle drawing. Use long curved lines that double back on themselves to draw his head and front flippers. Detail the face with a smiling mouth and inquisitive eye.
Draw curved lines above and below the turtle's body. Then, extend a pair of lines behind the flipper and allow them to meet at a gentle point. Next, use curved lines to enclose the top and bottom of the shell.
Texture the shell with curved lines. Extend another line from the back of the shell and double it back on itself, enclosing the rear flipper.

On top of the earth, use curved lines to sketch the trunk, branches, and leafy crown of a tree, as well as the blades of grass at its base. Enclose a narrow shape beside it, with partial heart shapes on each side. This is a butterfly.
