Birthdays December 2017 - Have a Bat

Ink, marker, and colored pencil on smooth Bristol, 2.5x3.5", Completed December 2017

In the midst of all the Christmas cats and the Christmas card that I was drawing, I also had two more birthdays to create presents for. This drawing is for the second birthday of the month, one of my best friends in Boise, Krystal. Following the theme I started earlier in the month, I drew what I believe to be her favorite animal (or one of her favorites), a bat! Personally, I really love the huge, cuddly flying foxes, so that's what I used for a reference. The image I chose looked really happy, so it was great for a birthday present.

Available for purchase on cool art merch like greeting cards and magnets!

The reason I decided a bat was very likely to be one of Krystal's favorite animals (I'm still not sure if I was right!) is because one of her most common screennames is "batnkat". She also occasionally posts about bats so, hopefully, even if they're not actually her favorite, she still likes them enough that she appreciated receiving a bat ACEO for her birthday XD
