There are many snake species that can be found in nature. They come in many shapes and sizes.
They can be both visually diverse and dangerous to other animals.
You wouldn’t want to be on the wrong side of the king cobra! These snakes are not only deadly, but also very beautiful.
Learning how to draw a King Cobra can be a thrilling and fun experience.
This tutorial is for you if you love the deadly, yet beautiful snake.
This step-by-step guide will help you create amazing artwork with this animal.
The head is the first part of our guide to drawing a king cobra.
Begin by creating a curved line for the top portion of your head. Next, create a rounded line for the top part of your mouth.
You can draw fangs by drawing small, sharp lines on the roof of your mouth. Then you can add more curves to the open mouth.
The open mouth will have a twisty forked tongue sticking out. Next, draw a line that extends from the back of the head to the neck. It will then be time to move on to step 2.
Next, you will add more details to the body of the king cobra. Draw a straight line from the bottom of your king cobra’s mouth to the edge of its jaw.
A smaller, rounder line can be drawn around the base to indicate the location of the tongue.
Next, draw two curvey lines that run down from the head and then twist around. This is the next section of your body, as well as the outline for the belly.
This section can be tricky so make sure to follow the exact lines as shown in the reference image.
Once you are ready, we can move on to step 3.
We will complete the outline of the body before adding more details. Refer to our guide on drawing a King Cobra.
The next section of the body will follow the snake and will be twisty and wavey to indicate that it is slithering along.
This section can be difficult to master, so be sure to copy our image closely!
Now that the entire body outline has been completed, we will add the final details and touches in the next steps.
Next, draw the eyes of your king cobra. First, draw a small circle and then add another smaller one around it.
To give the snake an intense expression, add a wavy line to it. You can finish the eye by adding a few lines that poke out of it.
Next, we will draw some horizontally curved lines across the snake’s belly. If the snake were alive, these would provide friction to allow it to move.
The next step will be where you can add final touches and details.
Now you can finish the drawing and move on to the last step in this tutorial about how to draw the king cobra!
We will then finish the last details so that you are ready to color. First, draw stripes around the body of the snake.
These can be drawn to show the shadow cast by the snake.
You’ll then be ready to move on to the final step. You can add additional information before you proceed.
You could add a background to the image. This is a great way for you to show what environment this snake might be living in. What other ideas are there to complete this image?
It’s now time to have some coloring fun with the last step of this king-cobra drawing. In our example image, we only showed one set of possible colors.
