How to Draw a Cobra for Kids
- Draw the shape of the head.
Draw the snake’s head as a horizontal oval with different side shapes: one should be slightly pointed and the other rounded.
- Shape the eyes and tongue.
Draw two eyes as small ovals. Draw a line at the bottom for the tongue and at the end draw two small lines, turned in opposite directions.
- Draw the body of the cobra.
From the head, draw two parallel lines that connect at the bottom to form a sharp tip.
- Draw the hood.
Draw two large semicircles on the sides for a typical cobra hood.
- Body texture.
Throughout the cobra’s body, draw lines that create the texture of the snakeskin on the belly.
- Start drawing the tail.
From the tip of the cobra’s torso, draw a large, curved line as shown in the instructions.
- Inner circle.
Draw a small oval of the same shape inside the drawn structure. Thus, you get an almost complete cobra tail.
- Draw the tip of the tail.
Sketch two parallel lines that connect at the end to form the pointed tip of the tail.
- Color the cobra.
Color the front of the body yellow. Make the head, hood and tail of the snake green.
