Where’s the turtle?
That’s great. There are three things you should do to draw a turtle: 1) Find a place to lay it flat. I like to do this as shown above, then when I lay my turtle down I want them all to lay on top of each other and form a kind of wall. When your turtle is done laying, you want to put a little space to the rear of your turtle, and when you’re ready to finish it, make an overhand knot, a little piece of thick string or whatever kind of rope is used in wrapping a turtle. (A picture of what I’m talking about is at right) Put this overtop the top of your turtle. The end will curl around the turtle and it should come in at the back of the turtle. A knot will hold the knot and you should pull on the string when you’re ready to wrap it and close your knot, and the knot will keep the turtle secure from sway.
What if I don’t like the shape of the turtle? Then make another. What if I didn’t like the shape of the turtle? Then make another. Now you can make any combination you want. You don’t have to look at the pictures above for this. A lot of the people who I show turtle drawings to say I make them too boring or that they aren’t a great piece of art. It’s just that when I’m drawing a turtle, I don’t want it to look like an animal. What you want is a turtle with a head and a shell. For me the biggest problem when it comes to turtle designs is they can’t be realistic, they can only be “natural”. And as people, we are constantly trying to show them as having shape and form, and people who want a turtle but not realistic, they put their name on a box of shells or something like that where it says, “This isn’t a turtle. Please don’t buy this.”
For turtles we can’t go too far down the rabbit hole because it is hard for us but we can go down to our own personal feelings and our own imagination. But when you go to the next level you have to ask, “How does it feel to be the turtle on the box?” Or your favorite toy can give you a nice, good, warm feeling as a turtle, so why not get that in there? So I would get something that does feel nice to be a turtle, you know, something that says turtle. “I’m
