How to Draw a Snake Tutorial and Snake Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Snake and a Snake Coloring Page. This one is a side view of a coiled snake.

Snake Drawing

Drawing a snake that is wrapped up in a neat coil may sound like something that is tricky to draw, until you realize that it just takes a few straight and curved lines to achieve that look. It’s all in your point of view!

TIP: This is also a great crayon rubbing project. The wound up snake body is easy to fill, and perfect for creating some “skin”. No need for fancy rubbing plates either, this snake was rubbed with a brown crayon over a plastic mesh placemat, and then filled in with extra peach. Don’t forget, TEXTURE is one of the Elements of Art.

Materials for a Snake Drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
