Let me shy away from cartoon characters for a moment and do something more on the tribal level. There is all kinds of animals that can be drawn into a tribal design and or tattoo. For my next tutorial I wanted to show you guys “how to draw a tribal snake" design step by step. This is something that has taken some time to sketch out, draw, and complete. I have drawn a lot of tribal art in the past, and some of it was really awesome. I am about to teach you a simple way to draw a tribal snake the way that you see them drawn on the arms, legs and backs of people all over the place. It is true that this type of design is not commonly seen, but when you do get a glimpse of it, you will know why these tribal snake designs are awesome. How about I shut up now and let you move onto better and brighter things? I know I ramble a lot about the characters that I submit, but I like explaining myself which is why I talk about how I come up with ideas, and what I think is cool about the drawing. Anyway, I will now let you go because as you know I have a lot of work to complete. Have fun with this tutorial on “how to draw tribal cobra art step by step”. Peace out folks and happy drawing.
