The most important thing to master when drawing a bat is getting the wings right. Bats have wings much like a bird, so the drawing will involve a little bit of shading for the middle of the wings. Start by sketching out the outline of the wings by drawing two meringue shapes in the middle of the page. They should be roughly the same size, but one may need to be slightly larger than the other.

From here, it’s time to add some details. For one, draw a wide, curved line that encircles the middle part of the wings. Then, draw two smaller crescents on either side of the wings, lined up with the largest crescent in the middle. Now your bat is beginning to take shape.

Next, let’s work on the head and body. Draw the head of the bat by using the crescent shape you drew in the wings, but this time make it a bit wider. Draw curved lines down the body to create a more streamlined look. Now, draw two more crescent shapes on the sides of the head to form the ears. Finally, draw two tiny eyes and a smiling mouth.

To complete the bat, add some flying details. Draw the bat’s claws at the end of each wing then draw some curved lines on the wings to create a sense of movement. Lastly, add some whiskers around the mouth and nose area to give your bat an eerie look.

Now that you have all the basics down, it’s time to color in your bat. To give it a more ghoulish feel, opt for some spooky colors like black, charcoal gray, or deep purple. You can even experiment with adding some glitter to the wings for an added pop of sparkle.

Once your bat is colored in and looking spooktacular, it’s time to display it proudly. Hang it on the wall or put it in a frame and watch as your bat magically greets all of your guests. With just a few simple steps, you can create an eerie, yet classic, Halloween decoration – all in time for the holiday.

Now you know all the steps for how to draw a bat for Halloween. But this isn’t the only way to capture the spirit of the season. You can also carve pumpkins and dress up for a hauntingly fun night. So don your favorite costume and prepare to be spooked!
