The Season of the Bat | Black Paper Illustrations


I´ve been drawing sparkly bats. Lots of them! I think the black paper accentuates their nightlife nature as well as all the glitter and metallic goodness of the inks. I made a timelapse video to show you the process behind these batlings.

Materials used for this piece:
Black Glitter Paper
White Charcoal Pencil
Prismacolor Pencils
Sakura Pigma Micron Black Pen in 03
Sakura Gelly Roll Pens

This one is actually a lizard with bat wings.

You can adopt any of these creatures via my art store here.
