This tutorial will help you learn how to draw cartoon bats. Besides Batman, bats aren't really appealing for most of us. They are ugly, weird (they sleep upside down and live only at night!) and feared by many. Still, in this very easy lesson, you will learn to draw a bat that is amusing, aggressive and funny-looking!

Step 1
