Description: Sketching and drawing can sometimes get so frustrating when you have something new you would like to experiment with. For the first tutorial of the day I will be showing you how to draw a snake skull step by step. This is really an image made for stickers or tattoos and is commonly seen as such. I got the idea for the sketch not from a sticker or a tattoo, but from my imagination and for my love of snakes and skulls. I wanted to draw another lesson of a skull and a snake at the same time. So what I did was combine one of my favorite snakes (which is the cobra) along with a skull that kind of had characteristics of cobra snakes. I not only drew the snake coming out of the skull, I also drew out flared sides that are attached to the skulls head as you can see. I love coming out with different designs for different characters and objects. I drew this cobra skull live online two days ago and that day was fun and epic. I always like drawing live and talking with all my DragoArt buddies and fellow artist that are not signed up with the site. One of the best parts of this sketch is how I drew the snake’s mouth wide open with the long venomous fangs ready to protrude into the skin of a predator or prey. In the end the drawing came out awesome and I am initially happy with the end results. This lesson will show you how to draw a snake skull step by step. Like always the instructions are easy to follow and the steps are simple to understand. I will be back with four more drawing lessons for you all so stay tuned in to see what else is on the way. Until my return, I bid thee farewell.
