How to Draw a Cute Bat

Artist: Dawn / March 16, 2010

Step 1.

All the cute animals are easy to draw, but some may seem more challenging. This is due to the fact that they either have more detailing, or more parts. Start with a circle for the head, and then draw the facial guidelines. You will then add the linin   

Step 2.

The cute bat has a chibi looking face, so the bottom portion of the face will be drawn like a chibi character, boxy looking. Once that is done you can sketch out the large ears, and then add some fluff under them as you see here.

Step 3.

Now, draw the thick hair that is on top of the cute bats head, and then draw the ears detailing lines. Once that is done, you can add the eyebrows, and then draw in the small heart shaped nose, mouth, tongue, and fangs.

Step 4.

All you need to do here is draw out the eyes, and color them in the way you see them here. The eyes express how friendly the cute bat is. Next, Draw out the small wings, and then move to the next step.

Step 5.

Finish drawing out the body by adding the belly, legs, and feet. Add some toe lines, and you are all done drawing a cute bat. All you need to do now is erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 6.

Once you are done you can begin coloring in your bat. I think you had fun with this tutorial, and I hope you join me again for more drawing fun!

Description: Bats are animals that can be very creepy to some people, and yet some people also find these creatures very interesting, and beautiful. I for one think bats are wicked cool looking, but as far as calling them beautiful, I beg to differ. Some of my work is inspired by such animals like the bat. I will use their features like the noses, fangs, and even ears to get a character drawn. There is often an age old question that has been asked a lot. Are bats birds? The answer is no. Lets break down the bat for a minute shall we? First off bats are warm blooded animals and even though they have wings, they also have hands and feet. They also have bodies that contain fur and or hair, and when they give birth, baby bats are born alive, not hatching from an egg. Did you know that baby bats actually nurse from their mothers? It's true, there is such a thing as bat milk. All these facts lead to one conclusion, bats are mammals, which means they are the only mammal in existence that can really fly. As for birds, their more like reptiles then anything else. Yes they fly, but they hatch from eggs, they have feathers, baby birds are feed food from the mothers mouth, and unlike the bat, they have neither hands or feet. I guess that sums it up, bats rule and birds drool! The only way you are going to find a cuddly looking bat is to draw one yourself. That is why I will show you "how to draw a cute bat", step by step. This is going to be another animal that will be added to the β€œcute” series. I do hope you guys have fun with this lesson, I drew it live yesterday so I'm eager to get it uploaded. I will be back, so keep your artistic eyes peeled. Adios!
