I see that everyone is enjoying the new lessons that I have submitted so far and I am happy about that. For my last drawing tutorial I will be showing you "how to draw a anaconda", step by step. Anaconda's are the biggest snakes in the world. These massive snakes are not only long, they are really full of girth as well and can get as wide as a full grown man. Even though these reptiles are so incredibly large, they are seldom seen in the wild. They hunt for their prey near lakes, rivers and ponds as well as swamps. Sometimes anacondas will mistakenly see a child or a man as prey and eat them alive. These snakes thrive in South America and the largest recorded anaconda had an estimated sized of one hundred feet long in one village and another village in South America reported an anaconda sighting at being fifty feet long. What does the giant squid and anaconda have in common? They both have never been located in their reported sizes. It's true, both the anaconda and the giant squid have been reported at record lengths and sizes, but they have never really been spotted or studied. Sure sometimes a scientist will get lucky and find a tentacle that is believed to belong to a giant squid or the shedding skin of a snake that proves these animals exist. But never have any of them been found. Anaconda's are said to be one of the dangerous of all animals because of their fierce appetites and their lack of perception. These snakes are a part of the boa constrictor family which means that they grab and squeeze their prey until the body dies from suffocation or internal bleeding. Anaconda's feed on almost anything and have also been known to eat jaguars, deer, alligators and fish. Back in 2008 scientist found a fossilized mass of a gigantic snake that was estimated at being forty three feet long and weighing two thousand five hundred pounds. Now if that is not a killer snake than I don't know what is. The anaconda is one of my favorite snakes in the world and because of that, I have a nice collection of movies that are based on killer snakes particularly anacondas. Anyways this drawing came out super sweet and I know that you guys will love learning "how to draw a anaconda", step by step. I will be back tomorrow so stay tuned and see you then when they day comes back and greets us all once again.

How to Draw a Anaconda

how to draw an anaconda snake step 1

STEP 4.

Start sketching in the details on the branches and then detail the leaves. Once all your trees are drawn out and detailed you can thicken the anacondas body some more so you can finish him off. At this point you can add or erase plant life or even draw in a bird or a few insects. If you look in the snakes mouth you will see that there is a hole that needs to be shaded in and detailed. This is the wind pipe that they breath from when they have food in their mouths.
