As some of you may have realized by now, drawing animals for me has become such a fun adventure. Over time I have gotten better, and better at drawing and for all of you that has been with Dragoart since the beginning, you already know how much the lessons have improved. When ever I get a chance, I will go back and redo some of the old tutorials that I submitted because compared to how I can draw now, they look so bad. In the beginning, my experience I had with a tablet was limited. Now that I have been using a tablet for so long, drawing on it now, seems like paper to me. This tutorial is going to show you "how to draw a cartoon snake", step by step. I have drawn plenty of snakes, as you can see in the snake section under the animal category, but none are not as easy to draw as the one you see here. What makes a snake hard to draw is all the scales they have on their hides. This can all be avoided just by sketching out a simplified version on one of the worlds most popular animals. This lesson is guaranteed to be fun because drawing a snake has never been so easy. I will be back later with more drawing fun so stay tuned in.
