Hey what's up? Chris here. And today we're going to be learning how to draw a realistic reptiles. My pick, a turtle. Let's begin. First we're going to start with the shell. Round, but not quite perfectly round. We're going to come around and we're going to curve it here. Keep coming down where the turtle's head will be. So, we're going to start first by doing one leg. They have these little legs and these are their nails. Same thing here, put some lines. And these are the nails. And we're going to draw these lines here. This'll be the skin for the turtle's head which is kind of funny shaped. So, we're going to draw some lines here. This'll be one eye, some lines there. And this will be where the other hand will come out. And here's where the claws will be. And they have these little tiny stumpy tails. So, we'll put that there. Now, here are the scales like I told you are like a bunch of smiles. Same thing on that leg and the same thing on this leg. That's there and we'll put some lines, and for that. That's the nose. Last but not least, get some designs on th shell. It usually has like a boxy configuration on the shell. So, we'll bring that around like that. Some lines to accentuate. And there you have it. There you go. I am Chris and this is how you draw a realistic reptile.
