STEP 1. AS you can imagine drawing a snake is sometimes easy but since the black mamba is awesome, this lesson may be a bit harder than other snake tutorials. Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the long body guidelines as you see here.   STEP 2. Now you will start lightly sketch out the shape of the snakes head, and neck. Once that is done add the eye, draw out the mouth, and then sketch in the scaly detailing that these simple looking snakes have. Don't forget to draw the snake tongue too.   STEP 3. Continue to sketch out the shape and thickness of the black mamba's body as you see here. As you know the belly of a snake consists of wide "V" like lines. Once you have drawn out a good deal of the the body, add in the detailing and definition as you see here both on the head, and belly.   STEP 4. Again, continue to sketch out the snakes body and then add more definition to the back of the snake. This can be done by drawing scattered looking half circle for scale shapes. Draw the tip of the tail and then proceed onto the next step.   STEP 5. This is your last drawing step. Finish sketching out the black mamba's body, and then add detail, definition, and sketch in the texture for the snake. But before you do this, you should first start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Your black mamba should come out looking like the one you see here. Once you done, you can color in the body, and then color in the black shaded mouth. To emphasis the name of this snake, I colored the body in a shade of black instead of brown. Hope you had fun!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
