Let’s Draw A Kawaii Snake – Step By Step

Step 1: Let’s start drawing our kawaii snake with a cute little flower.
Step 2: Add some details in the middle to make it nicer.
Step 3: Next is to make a wide curve at the bottom, touching the flower.
Step 4: From the flower, continue drawing an arch above to form the snake’s head and body.
Step 5: Continue drawing a curve downwards then connect it back up to the face, as shown above.
Step 6: Draw a little curl right after the previous step.
Step 7: At the back part, draw a little pointy shape that will become the snake’s tail.
Step 8: Time to draw the eyes by making two round circles with one smaller circle inside. Shade the bigger circle black, leaving the smaller blank.
Step 9: Draw a tiny wavy stroke for the nose area. Place this in the middle space between the eyes.
Step 10: Around the outline of the snake’s body, draw uneven oval shapes for the scales. See sample above as guide.
Step 11: Time to add some blush on the cheeks for that kawaii look! Make a round shape near the eyes.
Step 12: Coloring time! Our kawaii snake is green but we used a darker shade for the scales. The pink flower is really cute, too! You may choose your own color and get inspired with this example. Have fun!
