1. Begin by drawing an oval. This will form the top portion of Blastoise’s head. Then, enclose another, slightly larger shape beneath it. The two shapes should appear to overlap. This forms Blastoise’s jaw and snout.

3. Draw Blastoise’s segmented arms. For the near arm, begin with an open circular shape. Emerging from this, draw an oval shape. Band it with a curved line. Use three rounded triangles to form the fingers, erasing guide lines as necessary. Enclose the far arm emerging from behind the body. Band it with two curved lines, and draw the fingers using small ovals or rounded triangles. For the ears, draw two small triangles on top of the head. Detail the near ear by drawing a smaller triangle within it.

Then, enclose an irregular, elongated shape protruding from the rectangle. Enclose two circles, one within the other, at its tip, and band it with a curved line. From behind the head, enclose an irregular, elongate shape. Band it with a straight line.

Place two short lines above the mouth to indicate nostrils. Enclose a narrow, curved triangle to form the eye. Draw a circle to form the iris, with a smaller circle and shaded circle within. Detail the brow using curved lines.
