I already submitted a tutorial on this very snake in a sketched video form so there really isn’t too much for me to say. As you know drawings snakes is one of the more exciting animals to draw because they are so darn cool. Even though this tutorial came out looking all bright and colorful, I still feel that the sketch came out better than the colored drawn version. Anyways, there is a good chance that this tutorial on how to draw a snake head is going to be hardly viewed since I already submitted the sketched version. The difference between this tutorial and the first one I submitted is I made sure to include some helpful tip steps that will make it a whole lot easier to understand how to draw the most complex part of the snake, and that is the head, and everything inside of it. I guess that’s all guys have fun with drawing a snakes head for the second time and be sure to let me know which one you liked better. Adios people and enjoy your artistic day!
