Modelling Snake

I need information about a snake modelling as shown in the picture.
Thank you.

Did you look at Youtube tutorials -

Thank you for your reply. The subject I want to learn is how to make the helix required for the snake drawing. How can the helix in the picture be made suitable?

I haven’t draw a snake but when I’ve modeled things like springs where the bend changes, I’ve ended up dividing it into sections. For these springs the pitch varies so I used shorter helices and scaled the ones for the ends before combining them into one.

For these it’s the same sort of thing with the addition of some geometry for the hooks.

I use the Curve Maker extension to draw the helices.

Here’s how I made a snake. It’s not the best method, but it works.

Use 8-sided circles to make a spiral, then draw the neck with line segments. Move the points around to create bends in the lower spiral to get a snake shape.

Use follow-me, taper the tail with the scale tool, and extrude a few times to make the head.

Texture it.

Subdivide it. I used Artisan organic toolset.
