Welcome to this easy drawing tutorial to help you learn how to draw a bat using a simple step-by-step technique! Created from an adorable design, this cartoon animal should be relatively easy to sketch even if you don't have much drawing experience. Only six steps are required to complete this cartoon bat!
It's true that bats are not necessarily always appreciated. They look creepy, they can fly dangerously close to humans or get stuck in the hair. It's not a good reason NOT to draw a cute version of this particular animal! :)
You can begin this lesson by sketching a large oval shape to form the head. Below the head, you can draw a small rectangle to illustrate the body. Make sure that this rectangle is narrow and not too long.
Time to draw the wings. It's hard to describe how the wings should look like, so perhaps looking at the illustration below can be a good idea! Basically, each wing is made from three different curved lines. Make sure each wing is pointing towards the ground.
The ears are represented by two small triangles. Another small rectangle with round corners can be drawn on the stomach of the cartoon character. The feet are made from small oval shapes.
The eyes are drawn with large circles. You can repeat the same technique to illustrate the pupils. However, the pupils are located slightly towards the middle of the illustration.
We are almost done! For this step, draw a long curved line to create the mouth of the bat. The pupils are filled with small oval shapes to represent how lighting can reflect inside these pupils.
Cool! This black and white version gives you an idea how the final bat should look like without colors. It's a simple version that you should be able to draw within minutes once you are comfortable with this cartoon character.
Here are all six steps needed to draw a bat. I hope you had fun creating this character and you can work on a more advanced version of the cartoon bat if you are over with this one! :)
