Bats are animals that can be very creepy to some people, and yet some people also find these creatures very interesting, and beautiful. I for one think bats are wicked cool looking, but as far as calling them beautiful, I beg to differ. Some of my work is inspired by such animals like the bat. I will use their features like the noses, fangs, and even ears to get a character drawn. There is often an age old question that has been asked a lot. Are bats birds? The answer is no. Lets break down the bat for a minute shall we? First off bats are warm blooded animals and even though they have wings, they also have hands and feet. They also have bodies that contain fur and or hair, and when they give birth, baby bats are born alive, not hatching from an egg. Did you know that baby bats actually nurse from their mothers? It's true, there is such a thing as bat milk. All these facts lead to one conclusion, bats are mammals, which means they are the only mammal in existence that can really fly. As for birds, their more like reptiles then anything else. Yes they fly, but they hatch from eggs, they have feathers, baby birds are feed food from the mothers mouth, and unlike the bat, they have neither hands or feet. I guess that sums it up, bats rule and birds drool! The only way you are going to find a cuddly looking bat is to draw one yourself. That is why I will show you "how to draw a cute bat", step by step. This is going to be another animal that will be added to the “cute” series. I do hope you guys have fun with this lesson, I drew it live yesterday so I'm eager to get it uploaded. I will be back, so keep your artistic eyes peeled. Adios!
