Today, I’m going to show you how I draw a turtle. As usual, I’ll be drawing in Adobe Illustrator with my Wacom tablet.
I always start with the largest part first, which is typically the body. Per usual, my animal bodies start off looking like deformed beans.
Normally, I don’t add details like this until the whole turtle is outlined, but for whatever reason, with the turtle, I finished the shell before he had a head or legs.
Next, I added some legs…
And a neck. Again, breaking with tradition, I added the shading before adding a head.
And we have turtle!
You may buy him on Redbubble if you’d like your own.
