STEP 1. Draw a big circle shape for the tortoise body and shell. You will then draw the shapes for the legs, and head. Draw the separation line for the shell and skin.   STEP 2. Start sketching out the shape and form of the animals head and then add the mouth line. As you can see turtles have a very antique look to them. Once the head is sketched out draw the shape of the loose looking neck, and then start sketching out the underbelly, legs, and toes or toe nails.   STEP 3. Okay' it's now time to start sketching out the turtles enormous shell and then be sure to draw the octagon like shapes that make-up the shell design. Add some definition to the neck, and draw out the front leg.   STEP 4. For your last drawing step add the nostril holes, and eye, and then add some definition or detailing to the tortoises knee. Lastly, sketch out the back leg and foot. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5.
