STEP 1. Start out by picking your pencils. I used an HB for sketching/shading, 2H for light lines/shading, F for lines, and B for dark lines and shading. I also used pencils softer than B (4B, 5B) for darker shading.   STEP 2. Start out with some basic guidelines. Use an HB or F pencil for sketching.   STEP 3. Sketch in the facial features.   STEP 4. Sketch in the res of the torso.   STEP 5. Now sketch in the wings.   STEP 6. Your sketch should look something like this. Try to erase away the guidelines that you no longer need.   STEP 7. Now using a B or F pencil outline the bat. Make the lines dark but don't apply them too strongly, they should still be erasable. Also sketch in your background if you want one.   STEP 8. I like developing my background at the same time as my foreground. Here I've defined some mountains in the background using HB and 4B pencils.   STEP 9. Now start detailing the facial features. I used an F pencil for this.   STEP 10. Shade in the head. You can do this using an F pencil for the dark shading and an HB for the fur.   STEP 11. Now shade in the rest of the body. I also developed the background a bit more during this step.   STEP 12. I went ahead and developed the background a bit more. You can use an HB pencil and a blending stump for the sky.   STEP 13. Try to work on the wings section by section. Start out by defining the outline using an F or B pencil.   STEP 14. Now shade in the wings using a 3H (or any H pencil) for the light shading and an F pencil for the dark shading.   STEP 15. Now define the outline of the rest of the wings. Also try to define your moon a bit as well.   STEP 16. Now shade in the rest of the wings.   STEP 17. Work a bit more on the background, define the moon and sky a bit more.   STEP 18. Finish up your drawing by smoothing out your shading and adding some finishing details to the bat. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, comments and questions are more than welcome!   Step 1. Step 2.
