Step 1: Draw an angled ellipse for your cobra's head.

Step 2: Cobras coil up their bodies for protection. They also coil when they are ready to strike their prey. Draw the cobra's coiled as three layered ellipses and two "L"-shaped lines.

Step 3: Draw the cobra's pointy tail as a cone on the back of the bottom ellipse.

Step 4: Draw each eye as a set of two circles, an open outer circle and a shaded inner circle. Make sure to leave a white dot unshaded in the corner of each inner circle to show reflection.
