I am glad to bring to your attention an excellent and very useful drawing lesson, in which I will tell and show you how to draw an easy turtle step by step. This is another fascinating drawing lesson dedicated to the image of animals.
The ability to draw various animals is very important for every artist. This tutorial will be very simple, as I created it specifically for beginner artists and children. You may have seen turtles in various movies, cartoons and in real life. These animals are also sometimes kept as pets.
The turtle is an animal that has a hard shell. The turtle shell has holes for the head and paws. The turtle’s head is oval, and its neck is long and agile. When turtles sense danger, they quickly hide their head and limbs under a strong shell. These animals look quite cute and interesting.
