How To Draw A Cute Cartoon Bat: Easy Step By Step For Kids

Updated on February 22, 2013

Step 1: The Head

If you've followed my zombie and kitty cat drawing tutorials, then you already know I like to use a square shape with rounded edges for the head.

Step 2: The Ears

The ears are basically just little triangles plopped on top of the head. I made these with the inner edges parallel to each other, but you can try out different variations to see how you like them.

Step 3: The Eyes

Again...squarish shapes with rounded edges. I also tried out circles on this one, and they looked pretty good, so try that variation too. I like the eyes to be different sizes; it just looks sillier to me.

Notice the placement on the head. The bottom edge of the eye sockets is pretty low on there. You might even go lower, so that they're practically resting on the bottom of the head. I also like them close together.

Make 'em nice and big...

Step 4: Pupils And Fangs

I thought I'd apply the expression, "Blind as a bat" to this drawing and make the eyeballs really kooky looking.

I skipped drawing the mouth and just put the fangs along the bottom.

It works.

Step 5: Upper Edge Of Wings

Now we do the upper line of the wings.

Remember how I like the eyes to be asymmetrical? Well, I like to apply that same off-balance feeling to the wings here. One wing is more vertical while the other is more horizontal. You can exaggerate the different angles even more if you'd like.

The next time you draw this little guy, try putting that wing on the right almost straight up and see how it looks.

Step 6: Finish The Wings

Okay, now we just finish the bottom lines of the wings and we're almost done.

Be sure to make them nice and pointy.

For the last step, just go over your main lines in ink. Pay close attention as you do the head and ears so that you don't ink the wrong part.

After the ink dries, erase the pencil lines. I usually like to go over it one more time with the pen after that.

And...you're done!


So How Was It?

Did you draw my bat? How was it?

      Bahaha! RUSS! You kill me, bro. Good to see you on here. So how are you doing? I stopped Bubz ages ago (obviously). And to be honest, I'm hardly ever on here too. Look...you commented 5 weeks ago and I just saw it now...so that's how often I check on here.

      Anyway, good to hear from you, man. I'll have to stop by your blog and see what you been up to.

      Aloha, Chris

      That really WAS "super easy." I loved it! I liked your cat one too, but that was a harder one. It took me a couple of times to get it right, but now it's easier.

      I clicked the "thumbs up" too for you.
