click the image to enlargeDraw a simple outline of the body contours. A simplest outline you can. Hold the pencil tilted so that the lines are wider (thicker) so you can cover inaccuracy.
click the image to enlargeHere I made some slight corrections. I enlarged the shell a bit, but only a very little. Now, the pen-shaped-eraser comes handy to erase excessive pencil lines.
click the image to enlargeBy a weak pencil line, draw the outline of scutes – those are large, scale-like structures on top of the turtle’s shell.
click the image to enlargeSimilar as above, by weak pencil lines draw the scales on the flippers (front limbs) and, scales on the head.
click the image to enlargeYou can start to shade the scales on the flippers. Please leave a thin blank border-line among the scales. This small but important detail will give them a realistic look.
click the image to enlargeContinue shading the scales on both flippers and on the head. Also watch out, because not every scale is of he same darkness – especially on the head.
click the image to enlargeIt is time to put shade on the shell’s scutes (scale-like structures). Notice the pattern on each scute goes a certain direction. As if it would be drawn into a certain point.
click the image to enlargeMake weak pencil guidelines of direction of the pattern on every scute (see the picture). This will help and guide you while shading every scute.
click the image to enlargeContinue shading and filling up the pattern on every scute. I know it is a bit time-consuming but you will have a beautiful turtle drawing when you do it this way. I Promise!
click the image to enlargeNotice that some small irregular spots remain blank (light) on almost every scute. That is probably the part of nature’s pattern.
click the image to enlargeSimilarly as you did on flippers, outline the scales on the rear legs by weak pencil lines. Process is the very same.
click the image to enlargeGreat JOB! Your turtle look now really realistic and I believe your turtle drawing looks much better than mine.

This is a sketch of a handsome stranger I saw. It's not perfect. I suppose its more of a doodle of what I could remember of him. It took about 2 minutes

He is one of my favorite actors of all time. His face expressions are really unique so I felt inspired and decided to draw a pencil sketch of him.
