The following is a video tutorial where the steps are Written out within the video:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small oval as a guide for the cobra's head. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Below the snake's head, draw a bigger oval with the top part missing. This will be a guide for the expanded hood.
Step 3: Draw a line below the hood as a guide for the body of the snake. The way you draw the line is the shape the snake's body will take. Draw it coiling toward the front like this or just straight back to make it easier.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 4: Draw the eye on the top part of the snake's head. The eye consists of a circle with a line on top of it. Inside is another shaded circle for the pupil.
