How to Draw a Snake

How to draw a snake cartoon

Afraid of serpents!? Meh… here – learning how to draw a snake — a very cute one at that, will hopefully tilt this feeling in the other direction. But if anything – you’ll at least be able to draw one!

Here – tapping into that creative part of the brain… I’ve combined a coral variety with a rattle variety – and then… gone on to simplify it and make it extra ‘cartoony’ and cute.

Hope you like it! 🙂

First Step – Easy Peezy… Not Much to Its Structure at All!

If you can draw a circle and line – and I know you can!!… then this is probably one of the easiest things you’ll ever draw. Of course, even with the structure down, there are many twists, turns, tips, tricks – to make your drawing unique.

The framework…

Oh, and remember — just because I’ve got mine curved around and in this particular position… doesn’t necessarily mean you should do the same. Experiment a bit here… have your snake curved like an ‘S’ – coiled (like in a previous lesson)… or draping from a branch.

Let go and make it happen!

Second Step – How to Draw a Snake

At a 3/4 view – beginning with the left eye, and then developing from there — is a good way to go about this lesson. These images are here to help you visualize and create a cute little serpent of your own.

This should give you some ideas!…

Pretty neat — the colors really help to distinguish JUST WHAT kind of snake this is. Of course – this is one I totally made up!

You could do a lot more though – with less of course. Try a fan like formation on either side of its head to make your animal a Cobra. Or… color it bright green with some electric blue markings and you’ve got one of those awesome looking Emerald Tree Boas.
