How to Draw a Tortoise

Step 1

Start by drawing the eye of your Tortoise in pencil. Draw lightly at first so that you can erase easily if you want to change anything.

Step 2

Next add the outline of the upper part of the head.

Step 3

Now we can add the outline of the lower part of the head, and belly.
