The King Cobras Profile is breathtaking. This particular reptile is so intimidating it can actually stand up and look you in the eye. When he does, you know he means business. The King Cobra is one of the venomous snakes alive on the planet. King Cobras reach about 18 feet in length which equals the longest venomous snake around. One of the most intimidating things about this particular snake is its iconic hood. This is the part of the snake that flares when they are confronted. They also release a chilling hiss while in that state that resembles the sound of a dog growling. The Cobra has a life span in the wild of 20 years. An interesting fact about their venom is that it is used in some pain relievers and arthritis medication. Believe that. In this tutorial I try and show you "how to draw a snake", with a few steps. The actual line art looks better than it being colored. I did have a difficult time sketching out the scales and the amount of detail in actual head of the snake. My online tutorial makes drawing a snake a lot easier because you don’t have to figure out how to draw it, all you have to do is follow the directions. I know there are some flaws but that is okay you can learn from my mistakes. Have fun and you don’t even have to color him. Before I go I would like to mention that this sketch only took me 4 hours to draw. I should’ve took a little more time with it I know.
