How to Draw Correct Bat Parts on Anthros by shorty-antics-27 How to Draw Correct Bat Parts on Anthros by shorty-antics-27
Here be a finished tutorial! For a long time I wanted to do a tutorial on bats... and little by little I've been getting more motivation to do so every time I saw a incorrect bat. IT WAS DRIVING ME CRAZY.

SO, if you're wanting to have a bat character (WHO IS COMPLETELY A BAT. NO HYBRIDS AND WHATNOT) then please draw the bat correctly. Look at references. Don't just guess. AND DON'T DRAW CANID PARTS ON A BAT. GRAAAAAAAHHHHH.
I also think I'ma keep the bat character I made up at the bottom. :'D I LOVE Lesser False Vampire Bats. They are so cute. <3

The photo is thanks to :iconnicovala:, and the original is here: [link]

This was very useful! I drew a bat creature and it came out looking pretty good thanks to you. It's more humanoid then bat but it's got planty of batty things

Thank you for making this, it will be very helpful when I finally attempt my flying fox anthro. The problem I'm running into right now though on earth am I going to put clothes on her when her wings are kind of in the way of allowing that? Do you have any suggestions?

You'd only be able to put things around the neck or you have to be super creative... or else you'll have to be unrealistic with the wings or just not realistic at all by making it seem like the clothes go through the membrane (which I hate when people do that, Looks so bad)
