Artist: Dawn / January 11, 2008

Step 1.

First start off with an egg shape that will be the body and two w shapes that will be the wings.

Step 2.

Now add the leg lines with two small balls at the end for the feet and just replicate the lining underneath the wing lines that will be were the skin is going to be attached.

Step 3.

In this part what you wanna do is almost like connect the dots and thicken the line art around the body. Also start to sketch out the face.

Step 4.

Add skin detailing on the wings and the toes on the bats feet.

Step 5.

Start to sketch in the fur on the bat and define the bat ears. Remember bats mousy looking ears, so they are suppose to look like their to big for the face.

Step 6.

Finish coloring in the bats fur and erase the unwanted sketch lines.

Step 7.

That's it 6 steps. I told you drawing a bat is easy. Now all you have to do is color it if you want to.

Description: Brown Bats are one of the most common of all bats out there, and they can be found all over the world. They are the bats that have those funny looking ears that kinda resemble mouse ears. Their fur is shinny, and the color of a brown bat is a uniform brownish black. This lesson will show you "how to draw a bat". Brown bats are insectivores; they feed on moths, beetles, mosquitoes and other insects that live in the earth. The wings have a dark brown color and their wingspan is about 9-11 inches. Adult brown bats weigh .20-50 ounces. Their teeth are extremely sharp which enable them to grasp hard bodied bugs while flying through the air. I personally don’t like any kind of bat; I think they are hideous, ratty looking creatures that give me the goose bumps. All I know is that, if you asked me to hold one I would pretty much say “hell no!” I put this tutorial in the Halloween category because bats are a big thing when Halloween rolls around, along with pumpkins and black cats. Learning how to draw a bat is so simple. I think there is like only six steps and their real easy instructions too. I even show you how to draw bat wings as well, so you’re really getting two tutorials in one. I may not like bats, but there are a lot of people out there that do. I hope you find this tutorial useful.
