Learn how to draw a Sloth in what has to be one of his happiest poses. Those long claws were definitely made for hanging.

Did you know that there are two different species of sloth, and it’s the three-toed sloth that looks like he’s always smiling? They live in the tropical forests of Central and South America, and I’m sure could use all the support they can get to keep their habitats from shrinking.

How to Draw a Sloth

In this drawing tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to draw a sloth. Sloths are perhaps one of the most interesting animals on the planet and are known for how terribly slow they are, but this doesn’t mean that we must be slow about how we draw one. Instead, we’ll begin with loose, quick marks – defining the basic shapes first. With basic shapes in place, we’ll draw the contour lines and details and finish off the drawing.

Step 1 – Draw a Shape for the Head and Plan the Facial Features

We’ll first draw a simple circle for the shape of the head. With the shape in place, we can draw a slightly curved line down the center. Two horizontal lines are added – the first for the eye line and the second for the nose and mouth. Notice that these lines aren’t perfectly straight. Instead, they slightly curve around the form of the face.

How to draw a sloth step one

Step 2 – Draw Three Overlapping Shapes for the Body

Underneath the head, we’ll next draw three overlapping shapes for the body. The top portion is nearly a circle while the middle section is similar to an oval. The bottom shape is a bit more organic and dips slightly on the right side.

How to draw a sloth step two

Step 3 – Draw Shapes for the Upper Portions of the Arms

In this drawing, our sloth is hanging on a tree. We’ll add a few shapes for the upper portions of the arms. Actually, “shapes” isn’t the right term, since these are actually lines – but in our minds we are thinking in terms of shapes, leaving the ends open where they connect with the body.

How to draw a sloth step three

Step 4 – Draw the Lower Portions of the Arms and Few Claws

Next, we’ll add shapes for the lower portions of the arms. These shapes overlap the lines drawn in the previous step. Sloths have very long claws, so we’ll draw a few of them on the ends of the shapes.

How to draw a sloth step four

Step 5 – Draw the Details of the Face

Now that we have much of the body of the sloth in place, we add a few details to the face. We’ll add the eyes, nose and the mouth, using the lines that we drew in step one as a guide.

We’ll also draw a few lines to indicate a bit of fur around the inner portions of the face. (Sloths look quite scary until you see their friendly faces.)

How to draw a sloth step five

Step 6 – Add a Tree

Next, we’ll draw a tree for our sloth to be perched upon. We’ll add a few contour lines to indicate a bit of texture as well.

How to draw a sloth step six

Step 7 – Finish the Drawing of a Sloth

All of our basic shapes have been drawn at this point and all that’s left to do is finish off the details. We can go over all of the lines with ink, increasing the contrast. Lines are pulled out around the form of the sloth to create the illusion of a furry texture. These textural lines become more concentrated in areas where there is a bit of shadow. And that’s it, your drawing of a sloth is now complete!

Draw Sloth



Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Sloth" video after each step to draw at your own pace.




For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.



Draw Sloth 1

Step 1:Draw two circles as guides for the sloth's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Pay attention to the placement of the circles. They're close together, and the one on the left should be slightly higher and smaller than the one on the right.



Draw Sloth 2

Step 2:Draw a smaller circle on the upper right side as a guide for the sloth's head.





Draw Sloth 3

Step 3:Draw two intersecting, curved lines inside the sloth's head to help you place the facial features later on.



Draw Sloth 4

Step 4:Draw four lines on top of the body (two above each circle) as guides for the sloth's arms and legs. The lines should be on top because the sloth will be hanging upside-down.





Draw Sloth 5

Step 5:Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the sloth's body.

Gettin’ Sketchy – How to Draw a Sloth with Charcoal – Season 4 Episode 1

This episode aired live on YouTube on June 2, 2021.

Gettin’ Sketchy is broadcast live on YouTube. In each episode, we try to create a drawing within a timed period – usually 45 minutes. While 45 minutes isn’t really enough time to create a “finished” drawing, it’s enough time to create a looser sketch. Depending on the medium used, some drawings appear more finished than others. Gettin’ Sketchy is about having fun, practicing drawing skills, and providing tidbits of drawing instruction.

While the focus of Gettin’ Sketchy is about speed, it’s only fitting that we draw a very slow animal. In this lesson, we’ll draw a sloth with charcoal.

Here’s a look at the completed image…

Charcoal Drawing of a Sloth

Drawing with Charcoal

Charcoal comes in several different forms, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. In this lesson, vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, and white charcoal are used on gray toned paper. Since the vine charcoal is loose and easily erased, it is used first to create somewhat of an underpainting.

Compressed versions of charcoal follow after the vine charcoal to define and refine the details of the sloth. Compressed charcoal is more difficult to erase than vine charcoal, but it is much darker and less powdery.

With charcoal especially, a kneaded eraser is a valuable tool. In this case, the eraser is used to remove charcoal material to create grays and to keep the drawing tidy throughout the process.

As is the case with any medium you work with, the surface plays an important role. It is the foundation of your work and even for a simple sketch, the paper should be considered. In this lesson, toned Canson Ingres paper is used. This paper features a moderate tooth with a laid pattern. It is very similar to traditional charcoal paper.

See also:All About Drawing Papers

The toned surface allows us to push values as the drawing develops. Since the paper is gray, we can begin with medium grays and gradually extend the value range by adding both lights and darks. This is an advantage that we don’t have when we work on white paper but it also means that we must use a medium that can produce light values as well as dark ones. In this case, the white charcoal serves to develop the lighter tones.

Here are a few lessons and lesson series that provide more information on charcoal and its usage. Some of these lessons require membership…

Photo Reference

A reference photo was used to develop the drawing of a sloth. The original image featured the entire body of the sloth. Since I wanted to focus on only the head and claws, the original image was cropped. The original image comes from Pixabay.com

Here’s a look at the photo reference…

How the Drawing Develops

The approach I take to create a drawing changes slightly or dramatically depending on the medium chosen and the subject. However, in most cases, I like to define the overall shapes of the subject and gradually refine the contours before moving on to the finer details.

This often means that I will start from the outer contours (or outlines) of the subject and work my way in. This approach to drawing is often called “construction”.

See also:Drawing Basics – Construction

This is not the approach I took with this subject. Instead, I began with the eyes and nose and worked outward. I choose to work in this manner because I noted a clear relationship between the locations of these features and I knew that this area would become the focal point of the drawing.

This is a unique example of taking a different approach to laying out a drawing, but still getting similar results. In this case, I noticed that the eyes of the sloth are on a similar “line” as the nose, with the mouth just below it. This was an easy and natural place to begin making marks and more importantly, making comparisons.

We know that drawing is about observation. And close observation requires making comparisons. As we work through a drawing, we make comparisons to portions of the drawing we have already established. But we must begin somewhere and have some visual information place in order to make these comparisons. In this way, the starting point for this drawing begins within the outer contours and the comparisons expand outward from there.

Drawing a Sloth with Charcoal – Conclusion

When we draw any subject, we improve. Often the most challenging subjects present the most opportunities for growth and development. But no matter how difficult the subject may be or the challenges presented by the medium, the most important factor for improvement is action. Practice is key to improving your drawing skills. The more that you draw and the more that you challenge yourself with the subjects that you chose, the faster your drawing skills will develop. Even sketching for just 45 minutes forces you to work the same observational “muscles” that you use to create longer, more finished drawings. Even if your life is very busy and you wish to improve your drawing skills, then time to practice for just 45 minutes should be easy to find.

Realistic sloth drawing

how to draw a sloth that looks super cute

In this lesson, you will learn how to draw a sloth made from simple shapes and colors. Then, I will show you how to add basic gradient colors and shadows to enhance this illustration. Sloths are unique animals. Often depicted as being lazy and slow, these cute wild animals are quite fun to illustrate. Drawn in a bizarre posture, they offer something unique compared to common creatures like dogs, cats or turtles. Ready? Let's learn how to create a sloth in just a few basic steps ...

How to draw a sloth

drawing a few basic shapes

First, we need to add a few basic shapes to form the posture of the character. You can use a circle to illustrate the head and draw an oval shape to form the body. Both legs are made from short rectangles. Once you are done, you can proceed with the next step.

How to draw a sloth

drawing the animal using curved lines

It's now time to draw this cartoon sloth using curved lines. You can draw a few hair on the back and on top of the head. Legs that are visible behind the character are also made from short curved lines. Once you are finished, you can remove the shapes added in the previous step.

How to draw a sloth

adding more details in the drawing

Inside the head, you can draw the eyes and the pupils using perfect circles. The mouth is created from a long curved line while the nose is done using an oval shape. Short and pointed claws are also added as shown in the illustration below.

How to draw a sloth

one branch and a few patches to complete the drawing

On top of the drawing, you can draw a long branch made from straight lines. Inside the head, you can sketch patches using long curved lines. Now that the character is completed, let's proceed to the next step ... adding colors!

How to draw a sloth

plain colors to begin with

Sloths are filled with a brown color that also looks a little bit green (just a little bit). The legs drawn on the back are darker (simply because they are less visible). All claws are white. The top of the head is also filled with the same brown color.

Patches around the eyes and the nose are darker. The large patch found inside the head is brighter. As for the branch, you can use a brown color that is brighter and more saturated.

Gradient colors to create a more realistic illustration

Gradient colors are perfect to create a more realistic illustration quickly and easily. As you can see below, some parts of the image are darker while others are brighter. Using this technique is cool, but adding more shadows manually can also create something even more interesting.

adding more shadows

All shapes added below are filled with darker colors and are slightly transparent. Of course, we need to create these shadows in strategic areas to create an illustration of depth and volume. Pink lines were only added to make these new shapes easier to read.

Step 1: Start by drawing two small oval shaped eyes curved in the oposite way. Draw one dot inside each eye for the pupil.

Step 2: Now draw a small circular nose between both eyes and draw two dots at the bottom of the nose for nostrils.

Step 6: To draw the arms, draw two fuzzy loops arising from the middle of the body ending in a pointed tip first. Now draw three curved pointed hooks at the end of both legs. These are the sloth's claws. Now draw a smaller curved arm above the head with three long claws, two on the top and one at the bottom. Draw the last leg the same way at the end of the body and draw the claws. Now draw a fuzzy line between the legs to finish the belly.
