Hello once again folks and welcome back to DragoArt.com where the drawing fun never ends. I am going to do a very detailed tutorial today on a bat. Not just any bat though, I am going to show you “how to draw a cartoon bat”, step by step. The cartoon bat is a very versatile animal to draw because you can make them as big or as small as you like. They can come in different sizes and shapes, forms and creations. There is so many different type of bat specie out there that choosing one to draw and make a cartoon out of is complex. So what I did was make two variations of the two bats I like the most, a fruit bat and a vampire bat. The fruit bat is the friendly looking bat that this cartoon tutorial is drawn out of. The vampire bat is only seen in one of the steps that give you good tips and details on how to draw a bat period. I love the way this tutorial came out because it shows you different perspectives on how the cartoon bat can be drawn out. The lesson itself contains multiple positions for the bat and I think you will find this tutorial most helpful if you always wanted to learn “how to draw a cartoon bat” the right way. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun so stay tuned in for that, and later I will be on live drawing for you all. Peace out peeps and have a happy drawing day.
