Wonderful job on the bat. Very accurate illustration. Definately recognizable as being in the Family Vespertilionidae. I'm assuming you were going for the Long-eared myotis(Long-eared bat)? But that's not important. Could be a nice book illustration. By the way. What size is this piece?

Again, nice job http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

This is a good drawing, the only thing that bothers me is that I am unsure as to whether It is meant to be in flight or lieing dead on the floor http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif lol
I think if you remove the dark line along the underbelly this will fix it, the line looks like a cast shadow making it look grounded http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

This bat is whatever you interpret it to be...could be in flight, or dead on the ground...LOL.

In the photo I took the idea from...there was no background, so it could've been stuffed full of sawdust for all I know... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
