How to Draw a Bat Step by Step Easily

Step 1: Draw a Diamond Shape

Draw a Diamond Shape for the Bat Body

For making the bat drawing process easier, you have to create a diamond shape at first. If you can do it right, drawing a bat will be a piece of cake for you.

 If I call this shape a pentagon, then I won’t be wrong! However, follow the reference and draw such a shape to start drawing a bat for your Halloween projects. 

Step 2: Create the Upper Body

Create the Bat Upper Body

Before creating the upper side of the wing, you have to draw the head portion first. So, draw a small circle inside the centre of the diamond shape. Then, on the right side draw a curvy line following the reference. 

Similarly, draw another curvy line on the left side. These lines should be symmetrical to maintain the proper bat wing shape. 

Step 3: Draw the Side of Bat Wings

Draw the Side of Bat Wings

For drawing the side of the wings, draw a slightly curved line starting from one corner of the diamond to the other. Draw one such curve line on each side of the diamond shape. Make sure that the lines are symmetrical. 

Step 4: Draw the Lower Side of Wings

Draw the Lower Side of the Bat Wings

It’s the most important part of bat drawing. Since the wings are the main attraction of bats, you have to draw it properly to make the drawing look more beautiful. 

So, follow the reference and draw three U like curvy shapes on each lower side of the bat body. By doing so, you will be able to complete the bat wing drawing. 

Step 5: Add Face Details

Add Face Details to the Bat Drawing

Now, you have to add the face details to the bat body to make the drawing look more realistic. Draw two small triangles inside the head circle for the eyes. And above the head portion draw two curvy triangles for the ears of bats. 

However, don’t forget to erase all the unnecessary lines using a good quality eraser. Clean the surface properly and prepare the drawing for coloring. 

Color the Bat Drawing

Color the Bat Drawing

Coloring the bat is really very easy as you just need two colors for this. Use black color for the whole body of the bat and yellow for the eyes. I have used the black marker outliner for the whole body and a yellow watercolor marker for the eyes. 

However, there is no limit of imagination. So, you can use your own imagination and color the bat drawing.
