Snakes are creatures that can have a bad reputation – but in truth, they can actually be very cute! Having doubts? Then let’s take a closer look at bringing our own snake to life – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a pencil, and add a curved line to the center of the page.
Add a pointed “bump” to the top of this, with a bump at either end.
Now, add another, smaller bump to either end of the line.
Add a curved shape inside each of the bumps at the top.
Add another layer just inside this one…
And then add a small circle to the left of the inside section. These will be the eyes.
Add two curved shapes to the top, one above each eye.
Bring a line up from the outside edges, and curve these in towards the center…
And then connect these with a bump in the center.
Now, add a large, curved “w” shape to the bottom, with a flick at either end.
Add two oval shapes above this, with a curve on the inside of each.
Next, bring two lines down from the bottom of the mouth, and add an arrow shape to connect them, creating a tongue for your snake.
Bring a bump across on either side of this, and then take the line across and up to meet the line above.
Add two curved lines to the bottom of the face, curving across towards the left and off the page. Add another line just inside the left one.
Add two curved, horizontal lines across the right section, and then add a wavy shape to the left section.
Grab a black fineliner, and go over all your outlines.
Use an eraser to remove any outstanding pencil marks…
And then go over your outlines to make them really clear and sharp.
Use a yellow pen to shade the bottom of the face and the right side of the neck.
Grab a green pen for the top of the head and the left of the neck…
Use a darker green pen for the patch on the neck…
And use an orange pen for the tongue, the rings around the eyes, and the edges of the nostrils. Then, use a red pen for the rest of the nostrils.
Use a black pen to shade the main area of the eyes and the eyebrows.
And voila – that is one super cute, friendly-looking snake, just waiting for a name, and an adventure to head out on!
