How to Draw a Bat for Halloween

Artist: Dawn / October 17, 2020

Step 1.

The first step to drawing a halloween bat is to draw in the head and ear outline like you see here.

Step 2.

Up next we will draw in the bat's cute face which has big round eyes and an adorable smile. Notice the cute front pointed teeth. We will now add the detailing inside the bat ears like so and then give this bat a nose.

Step 3.

Up next, draw in the witchy hat and when you do this be sure the hat isn't bigger than the bat's head. Add detailing to the hat and then a band around the base.

Step 4.

All you have to do here is draw in the other bat ear which is large and rounded. Add detailing inside the ear too.

Step 5.

Let's get started with the bat's body. It is in flight so the legs are curled up in a fetal pose almost. The tail should be drawn in too as well as the feet.

Step 6.

And lastly, draw out the bat's wings. This is my favorite step because I LOVE drawing wings. Add the skin based tissue definition like you see here as well as the other foot and leg. When your bat is all detailed you can erase the mistakes you might    

Step 7.

Here is your halloween bat. All you have to do is have more fun coloring in this batty creature. You can also choose to draw in a cute background as well or print out the line art and color using crayons or markers. I hope you had fun drawing this ba
