How to draw a Cobra Snake

Let`s learn how to draw a Cobra.

How can we guess that this is the Cobra? Yes, of course, the fact that the snake in the picture with its hood expanded. Note that the Cobra is depicted in a typical threatening pose. Sensing the danger or preparing for attack, this snake raises the front part of its body in the characteristic positions, which in itself is impressive. But that’s not all: in the place where anatomically the Cobra’s neck is spread in oval hood with a characteristic pattern that looks like eyeglasses. Here it is – a tool of intimidation! It operates flawlessly. Even if we humans can’t look at disturbed Cobra at least, without astonishment, so what to say about animals? We’ll never know, but probably something amazing! Suppose a large hood with circles on it may impersonate the head of a large animal. Let’s start drawing with a long sinuous line – the body of a snake:

Don’t forget that the torso and tail this is the most essential part, while the stand remains on the ground. They are not lying extended at length, but on the contrary very prudently rolled into twists. For what it is, what do you think? Of course, for support.
