Naga, what in the world is a Naga? Are they versions of Medusa or something? I know you’re probably asking yourself what a Naga is. Nagas are creatures that are half snake and half human. Yes they are like the mythical Medusa. Medusa is a form of Naga! So today’s lesson we are going to learn how to draw a male Naga step by step! I drew this Naga male a bit anime-ish. He has an anime face and a really cool snake body! I love how he came out as well! The shading and background coloring was a challenge! I put a lot of effort into this piece! Soon I will make a tutorial on my new coloring and shading skills! Anyways, I decided to make a Naga because it was requested long ago by the user Dragonslayer4. He asked for me to make a tutorial from my own creation and that is exactly what I did. I love drawing mythical beings and because of that I tend to get very creative when I am sketching, drawing, and coloring. I agreed to make the request and here I came out with this! The angle, the shading, the coloring, the features came out brilliant (in my opinion). The pose for this Naga came from my inspiration from Pantera’s songs. Pantera is a really awesome heavy metal band that I absolutely LOVE! I’ve been listening to it lately and the songs give me a rush of action for poses. Recently I have made this really cool dragon pose for my upcoming how to draw dragon’s book! I was inspired for the pose by the jolting rush of Pantera’s music! I highly recommend listening to the Pantera band! While drawing I wasn’t only listening to that band. I was listening to a whole variety of rock music as well as pop. Evanescence, Caramelldancen, My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Metallica, Megadeth, and a whole bunch of other bands! So I really hope you will enjoy this step by step tutorial on how to draw a Naga male! Have fun and happy drawing!
