STEP 1. As with all snake drawing lessons, you will start the first step by drawing a circle for the head, and a connecting line that flows from the head, to the end of the tail. This shape looks like a cursive "L".   STEP 2. You will now start sketching out the bold shaped cobra head starting with the mouth opening and then draw the long lining from the brow, to the back which will later form the flared rib of the snake.   STEP 3. Next you will draw in the lumps for the nostrils, and then draw the evil shapes of the cobra eyes. Detail between the eyes, and then draw the shape of the head, and start the lining process for the snakes horns.   STEP 4. Finish sketching out the horn, and then draw the shape of the cobra's cheek and or face. Darken the lining and add some shading. Now you will need to draw the beginning line for the slithering body.   STEP 5. Draw and color in the nostril holes, and then start drawing the inside of the venomous mouth. You will do this by first drawing the fangs, and then draw the hissing tongue. Thicken the lining so that it looks bold, and then color in the inside of the mouth. Detail the teeth, and draw more of the reptiles body out.   STEP 6. Add minor detailing to the tongue and mouth, and then start sketching out the underbelly of the cobra's body as you see here. To emphatic on the body, make the lines bold, and bright.   STEP 7. Add some tribal detailing inside of the rib cage, and then draw more of the snakes body out. Notice that this cobra has a robust body shape. Thicken your lines and move to the last drawing step.   STEP 8. All you have to do now is finish drawing the belly, and then add the detailing lines. Next, draw the rest of the tail, and if you are following this tutorial verbatim, you will also need to give your cobra a spear tipped tail. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one, and then add some shading around the side of the tail tip.   STEP 9. When your drawing is done your should end up with a cobra tattoo that looks like the one you see here. Color it in and your done. This was a fun, and exciting lesson wasn't it?
