How to Draw A Snake

Feared by most and adored by others, learn how to draw a snake that should be admired by friends and family! It's a fact that snakes aren't the most popular animal on earth. Many don't like the textures, the look and the behavior of this particular animal. Whether you are a fan or not, you are invited to learn how to create a cool version using this simple drawing lesson.

Step 1

Great! Let's start this lesson by drawing the head and the body of this cartoon snake. The head is made from a simple circular shape. On the right of this shape, you can draw the body using two long curved lines. Make sure that the end of the tail is narrow and pointed.

Step 2

Next, you can illustrate the mouth using a small curved line. Under this line, you can draw the tongue like shown on the illustration below. Keep the tongue small and slightly curly.

Step 3

Nice work! Next, you need to represent the eyes using large circular shapes. As you can see below, the eyes are covering most of the area found inside the head. That's a simple tip if you want to create a cute cartoon character.

Step 4

Inside the eyes, you can add pupils using also circular shapes. As you can see on the template below, these pupils must be placed close to each other to create the desired effect.

Step 5

Finally, you can complete this illustration by adding small patches all over the body of the cartoon snake. Patches are made from oval or circular shapes. Two additional shapes are also drawn inside the pupils.

Step 6

Nice work once again! This is the final version of this snake in black and white. Snakes are relatively easy to achieved due to their particular shape. However, drawing a cute character requires a few basic elements like large eyes and smaller body to be successful. 

Snakes are quite popular on this site! You can learn how to draw a simple version made from cute lines, another one made from rectangles and squares, a more complex version filled with great lighting effects or the most challenging one, a snake with lots of colors, textures and shadows. Have fun! :)
