How to draw a grass snake tutorial
Let`s learn how to draw a grass snake. Grass snake is a very common widespread reptile. Although I am an urban resident and I rarely walk on the nature, but I have seen many times living grass snakes. t is clear that the joy of such a meeting is usually overshadowed by the assumption that it is a viper crawling in the grass.

Grass snake drawing lesson
We will learn how to draw a snake, which creeps directly to the viewer. How do snakes creep? It is clear that they can not slip stretched out on the ground as a straight arrow. Snakes creep like sinusoid waves.
Now we will turn this very sinusoid into a snake. The picture itself is very simple. But it must be realized that the snake not only becomes thinner towards the end of the tail, but also that the head in the foreground will look larger according to the laws of perspective.
Let’s make a linear drawing.
Well, we have drawn some generalized image of a snake. Paint it so that the snake become a grass snake. The body is dark, usually without spots or patterns, the belly is much lighter than the back. The most obvious sign are yellow spots on the neck.
However, the head of the snake deserves a more detailed approach.
