Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Cartoon Cobra" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two short, diagonal lines for the cartoon cobra's eyebrows. Don't place the lines too far apart. The line on the left should be longer than the line on the right. Curve the ends of the lines a bit to emphasize the furrowed brow.
Step 2: Under each eyebrow, draw a short angled line for the bottom edge of the eyes. The eye on the left should be bigger because of perspective. The cobra's eyes should be similar to little triangles. Add a short, curved line over each eye to emphasize the brow.
Step 3: Inside each eye, draw a small triangle-like shape and shade it in for the snake's pupils. The eye on the right should be near the middle, while the eye on the left should be close to the left edge.
Step 4: Under the cobra's eyes, draw a long, curved line that's similar to the letter V for the top part of the mouth. The line should stretch from one eye to the other and dip down low in the middle.
Step 5: Under the tip of the mouth, draw two thin, V-shaped lines for the cobra's fangs. Make the fangs as long as you'd like. Above the tip of the mouth, draw two short slits for the snake's nostrils.
