STEP 1. Start this first simple step by drawing a long curved line that will be used for a frame of his body. Attached to the body line draw a diamond shape for the head of the snake.   STEP 2. In this next step you will then start shaping out the head of the rattlesnake as shown and then add in the beady little eyes of this reptile. After you do that you can start drawing out the body lines on the opposite side to thicken the body as shown. You will end this step by drawing out the shape of the rattle tip on the tail.   STEP 3. Next all you have to do here is thicken the snakes body even more but this time you will be drawing out the thickness of the neck and then mid section of the body. Make sure you follow the lining all the way down to the bottom of the tail. On the left side of the rattle, start adding the notches as shown. Before you go detail the face by adding the lining for the mouth as you see here.   STEP 4. Now this is the last step where you will be drawing. So what you will do first is detail its massive looking head and give him snake eyes. You will then draw out the shape of his hissing tongue and then detail the body with various lines to define his thick hide. On the right side of the rattle draw out the rest of the notches.   STEP 5. This is what your finished snake should look like when successfully erased all the guidelines that you drew in step one. All you have left to do is draw out the scales and the markings that a diamondback rattlesnake has. You are done after that and because you are done that means you just finished this tutorial on how to draw a diamondback rattlesnake step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
