Start simple, and use a light pencil for the beginning lines then, switch to darker pencil or markers or paint to finish. Take your time and you will have a nice drawing.

The basic shape: The shell is just two curved lines, one line curves down and the other curves up. This should shape an oval.

The head is a smaller oval a little out from the shell.

Two lines make the neck.

The legs are four lines, two go forward and two go down. There are five claws on each foot, they don't have to be perfect.

The eye is a circle inside a circle near top of the head, it has a line going through it and a dot on the line.
The shell has a bottom draw it as a line.

Once you have the basic shape take a few minutes to go over with a darker pencil or marker. Add shadows.

The Shell Pattern: The shell has a pattern on it. If you take your time this can make the turtle beautiful.  Start with some light guide-lines to keep the pattern even, draw the two guide-lines going across the shell. Then divide the shell into uneven squares, three on the top, they are the biggest, five in the middle, and ten squares in the bottom, they are the smallest. Darken the squares and round them a little.
