How to draw a bat came as a request from Chuckers, my six year old. When I asked him what we should do next for Halloween, he yelled “Bat!” So here it is. Check back for a video soon.

How To Draw A Bat Step By Step

1. Draw a half circle, or a “U.” This is going to be the bottom of the bat’s body.

2. Now draw two pointy ears, connected to the body.

3. Now the fun part, draw an angry face. Try to make him as angry or scary as you possibly can.

4. Next draw sharp teeth coming out of his mouth. Since he’s a bat be sure to draw two teeth longer than the others. This will make his fangs. Bats have to have fangs!
