Step 11: Draw another set of curved lines inside the hood to emphasize its structure. These lines should be parallel to the hood. The line on the right starts close to the eye on the left. As you draw the line on the right, be sure to not overlap the lines for the cobra's tongue.
Step 12: Continue drawing the shape of the snake's body by first extending the line on the left. As you extend the line on the right, make sure it goes down farther than the line on the left before it curves back up and to the left.
Step 13: Now add a long, curved, horizontal line above the line from the previous step to continue with the snake's body. Now add a long, curved line below that for the bottom part of this segment of the body.
Step 14: Draw another curved line at the top but this time make it shorter. Add a curved line at the bottom but curve it high up for the left edge of the cobra's tail. Draw another curved line to finish the tail. You can make your snake's body longer by adding more curved segments.
Step 15: Add a series of short lines along the right edge of the cobra's body for extra detail. The lines should get longer the farther down the front part of the body they are. The lines should be shorter on the left segments of the body.
