Contrary to popular belief, a krait is not actually a type of snake, but a term used to refer to one of twelve colorful, venomous snakes that belong to the cobra family. Keen to learn more? Then let’s start by drawing our own Krait snake – read on to discover the steps you need.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a black fineliner pen to draw a backward “C” shape right in the center of your page, making the tops and bottoms long.
Extend the top line of the “C” across to the left, flicking it up slightly as it reaches the end.
Bring the bottom line of the “C” across and up, parallel with the line above.
Continue this line up, and then across to the right, flicking it up at the end.
Repeat this with the line below…
Bring a line up from the end of the bottom section, and take this across to the right, ending in a “loop”.
Continue the top line across, down and back to the left, leaving a slight gap…
And then add a curved “b” shape to the right of this, bringing the top across to the right rather than straight up.
Take this to a point, and then bring the line across to the left and back in.
Connect this second shape to the original shape with a curved line at the bottom…
Add a small circle to the end of the original shape, and make the bottom of this a little thicker for the eye.
Add a curved line to the end of this section, and then another, smaller curved line inside this.
Add a series of slightly curved stripes all down the length of the body…
And shade the spaces in between the stripes with a black pen.
Now, that looks like a fascinating, friendly snake to us – but why not see for yourself by doing a little research on these amazing creatures; we promise they are friendly, not scary!
