The basic step-by step drawing guide that follows
As you can imagine , drawing snakes can be easy but because the black mamba’s beauty is incredible, this tutorial could be a bit more challenging than other snake-related tutorials. Begin with a circle for the head. Then, include guides to the face. Then , draw the lines of the guide for the body’s long length as you can see in this.
You will now begin to outline lightly the form of the snake’s neck and head. After that, you can add the eyes and mouth. Draw the mouth and then draw the outline of the scale-like details the snakes’ simple appearance. Make sure not to sketch the snake’s tongue too.
Continue drawing the outline and size of the body of the black mamba like you can see. The snake’s belly is made up of broad lines similar to that of the letters “V”. After you’ve drawn clearly the body, you can add details and strokes like you can see on the belly and the head.
Then, you can continue to outline the body of the snake and add additional strokes to its back. This is done with a half circle, which appears to be dotted for scale shapes. Draw the top of the tail, and then proceed onto the following step.
This is the last drawing step. Finish the black mamba’s outline of its body, add more details, definitions and outlines to the texture of the snake. However, before doing this it is important to begin eliminating all guidelines and shapes you sketched in the first step.
The black mamba you’ve created appears to be similar to the one shown here. After that coloring the body, and then color the mouth area with a dark shade of black. To make clear the name of the snake I’ve painted the body in black and not brown. I hope you enjoyed it!
