How to Draw an Anime Bat

Artist: Dawn / May 19, 2010

Step 1.

Draw a medium sized shape for the front view body shape of your anime bat. Next fill that circle with a smaller shape like you see here. Lastly draw the wing arms like you see here.

Step 2.

Now it's time to sketch out the shape of the mouth area like you see here. Once that is done you can start drawing the lining for the ears, and eyes.

Step 3.

In this third step, you will begin sketching out the edges of the anime bat's ears like so. Add some jagged lining too to make the bat look even more like an anime animal. Next sketch out the cheeks, and chin like so, and then draw out the eyes more.

Step 4.

Wow, look how much of this bat will be drawn out when you are done with this step. The first thing you need to do is sketch in the detailing inside of the ears, and then begin sketching out the hairy body like so. Then draw the leg lines.

Step 5.

Sketch out the bats wings, and when you do this, you have to sketch out the fingers which is woven together by the bat's wing based tissue. When this is done, you can sketch in the detailing to the nose and the mouth by adding the teeth.

Step 6.

This is your last drawing step, and all you have to do is sketch out the legs and the rest of the body and feet. Erase all the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.

Step 7.

This is how your anime bat looks when you are all done. Color it in, and you're done. I hope you had fun drawing this anime animal, I know I had fun with you all.
