In this forth tutorial I will be doing a lesson on a very cool looking snake sketch that was supposed to be a part of the bloody skull that I uploaded earlier today. I chose to get rid of the snake from the sketch because the color of the snake would have clashed with the colors of the bloody skull. I mean yeah sure I could have changed the color of the snake but in the end I chose not to because I thought that the snake would make a cool tutorial by itself. So with this tutorial I will be showing you "how to draw a serpent", step by step. As we all know a serpent is a name given to a snake when used in a religious or mythological context. For instance in the bible it states that Eve took the apple from the “serpent” not snake. There are also myths and tales about a sea serpent that lives in the waters that has been around for centuries. I wanted to label this snake that I drew a serpent because that is what he looks like. I mean a snake is a snake, like when you describe a venomous animal the first thing that comes to mind is a King Cobra or a Black Mamba. When you want to tell a tale about a mysterious slithering monster or tell the tale of what evil looks like in the form of an animal the word serpent will roll off your tongue. I am happy with the end results of this lesson because the scales and body position came out just perfect. I added a crystal ball that he is wrapped around to represent mystery. I think you will like this tutorial on "how to draw a snake, step by step". The instructions are easy to read and the steps are simple to follow. I will be back soon with one more drawing lesson so keep your eyes peeled there is more on the way.
