Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by drawing three “teardrop” shapes on their side, placing these on the right side of the page. Add curved lines to the top on both sides of this.
Now, add a series of curved shapes up the center of this to form a “pile”.
Add a curved shape, this time vertical, below this, and add a slightly jagged, pointed shape to the right of this.
Close the bottom of this point with a curved line, and then add small marks to the sides.
Now, add three points to the left of this shape…
And add a small oval shape to the right, filled with smaller ovals inside.
Bring a small turtle head up from the top of this, and add a small eye with a curved line on the left, and a wavy mouth below.
Use a black fineliner to add delicate detail across the face, flipper, and around the sides.
Now, add three small “egg” shapes to the left of this turtle.
Bring a curved shape across on either side of this…
Add small loops to the bottom to create four turtle outlines.
Add small eyes to the faces of the turtles…
And then curved lines down the shells of each turtle.
Now, add curved horizontal lines across these.
Add details to the outside of the turtles.
Next, add another “teardrop” shape to the top of this…
Add the flippers to the bottom of this shell, and a face to the front…
And then add a curved line to the bottom of the shell for the main body.
Now, add a small eye shape to the front of the face, and add a curved mouth below.
Add patterns to the top of the shell, and the bottom of the body.
Add small patterns to the bottom of the legs and the head.
Use an orange pen to add curved arrows connecting each stage…
And then use a brown pencil for the first stage and the egg for the second stage.
Now, use a brown pen for the shells of the turtles.
Grab a green pen, and shade the flippers of each turtle.
Now, use a brown pencil to shade the body of the turtle.
Use a black pen to add the title – “LIFE CYCLE OF A TURTLE”, and then label each stage – “EGGS”, “HATCHING”, “JUVENILE”, “ADULT”.
