  1. Step 1 Draw a circle for the head of the snake and a curved line for the body. Make the outline a s shown. Step 2 In between the two outlines, draw the eyes and the structure of the face below the 2 nd line. Step 3 Finish the head by drawing triangular arrows.
  2. Step 1: The Black Mamaba is a very long snake but it is not too heavy! To start drawing the snake, draw a small curved shape at the top, with two small loops at the top for the mouth and eye. Draw the eye by adding a small oval near the top, and a line in the middle for the mouth.

I believe this is some sort of viper but regardless of the type of snake that you wish to draw, this tutorial should be.

Draw the head of this lovely snake. Place a small oval with a pointed end at the bottom of the sheet of paper. Think in advance about the location of the snake and the shape of its body.

Step 2 – Sketch the Snake’s Torso

Draw the outlines of the torso. Use smooth lines with lots of curves. The snake has a very elastic body, however, do not overdo it with the number of bends so that it does not look like a metal wire. Use light lines so you can remove errors and inaccuracies.

Step 3 – Draw the Second Line of the Snake’s Torso

Add another line. This line should be almost completely parallel to the line from the previous step. An exception is a tail because, in the tail area, two lines converge and form a sharp tail. Note the thickening of the snake’s torso in the area of large curves.

Step 4 – Draw the Eyes and Nostrils

Draw the facial features of our snake. In our case, because of the angle, we can only see one eye and a pair of nostrils. The nostrils look like a pair of dots, and the eye looks like a semicircle bounded by a horizontal line. By the way, it looks a lot like the head of a small lizard.

Step 5 – Draw the Texture of the Snakeskin

The skin of a snake has a very unusual texture. These are smooth, rounded scales that allow the snake to slide through the narrowest and most difficult to access gorges and burrows. This is a drawing lesson in a simple cartoon style, so don’t draw all the scales in detail.

Step 6 – Erase the Guidelines

Set aside the drawing objects, take an eraser, and erase all unnecessary guidelines from your snake drawing. To make your artwork more expressive, darken the necessary lines.

Step 7– Color the Snake Drawing

Let’s use light green as our base color. A darker shade of this color would be a good option for the shadows. Please note that our snake has a black eye with a noticeable white glare.

So, the most basic things are behind, and if you followed our recommendations, then most likely now you know how to draw a snake. We are looking forward to your feedback. Write to us your opinion, because the team of Easydrawingart.com reads all your comments and answers many of them.
