To make the Spooky Bat, you
need to learn how to make the Curve
Stroke with the brush tip of the Dual Brush Pen. Spooky Bat loves to embellish a Halloween
card, a frightful scrapbook page or even a ghoulish treat bag.

DoodleDab CURVE STROKE

Step 1. Start here with the point
of the brush tip and press down to start forming the stroke.

Step 2. Go in the direction of the
arrow, pushing on the brush tip a little more to make the stroke wider.

Step 3. Start to lift up the tip at
the end and off the paper to create the sharp point.

Step 4. Practice
making the curve stroke. Try making it smaller or larger.

Step 5. After you
are happy with your stroke, make it in the opposite direction! It’s a little
easier to draw the left to right curve stroke if you angle your paper slightly.

SPOOKY BAT

Step 6. Start the Spooky Bat by making two mirror-image curve strokes

Step 7. Add smaller curve strokes to each side to form the wings.

Step 8. Add tiny teardrop strokes for the ears

Step 9. Using the fine tip of the pen; add eyes, feet and little curls on
the top of the wings – makes them look a little bit more vampir-ish!

              

Spooky Bat can have a dotted flight path or little movement marks for their flapping wings. He also comes in
lots of spooky colors. Spooky Bat also likes to hang around the bat cave. Turn the paper upside down when drawing Spooky Bat sleeping in the cave.

paper sack down into the color and press. Lift and lay face up to dry. Repeat with all the sacks.
