Hey guys, how is it going on this magical Monday so far? Well, I hope it's going good for you all because I have some really fun lessons that I think people will enjoy. Looking back at some of the animal tutorials I did, I noticed that I didn't do a whole lot on the bat species. So today, I will be showing you "how to draw a fruit bat", step by step. These bats are one of the most recognized bats in the world. Everyone knows of the fruit bat and whether people like it or not, they aren't what we think they are. With this drawing tutorial I will be talking about some cool facts about the fruit bat. First things first. They are probably the only bat species out there that I find cute. Even though they remind me of rats, the fruit bat has that likable look because they have that fuzzy hair that covers their bodies, great big eyes, and muzzle shaped snout or nose. When I think of a bat I usually don't associate the fruit bat as an ugly, creepy animal. Fruit bats are also called 'Megabats'. They don't drink blood or eat insects. Instead they are strictly into eating fruit and on occasion they will suck on some flower nectar. Besides eating fruit, they also like licking the juices from fruit. In the fruit bat family there are bats that are only two centimeters big, and there are also bats that are so big, they have a five foot wingspan, and weigh up to two pounds. Now because fruit bats don't like to tolerate cold weather, the more common places that you will find these critters is places with warm climates like Hawaii, Mexico, Florida, and other areas with tropical like temperatures. Anyways, drawing a fruit bat should be simple enough for a wide variety of folks, but if you are one of those artists that like drawing bats no matter what species they are, than this lesson should appeal to you too. Adios people and enjoy this tut.
