Halloween can be cute

Happy Halloween, a cute little bat asleep on a pumpkin ;-)

In 2011 I draw a little bat asleep on pumpkin for Halloween. One year on I thought I’d add it here :-). I only used flat colour and no outlines. It’s a style I will be using more of in the future. Simple, clean shapes that lean towards being a bit geometric. Keeping it super cute. An animal and a prop.

Ideas were drawn up in Sketchbook Pro. Then recreated in Adobe Illustrator with mostly Pen tool and Path Finder options. The lovely wobbly line for the bat’s fur was done with the Distort & Transform > Zig Zag… filter.

I put this up on iStockPhoto, so it’s available for for use for a wee small fee. Bwoowahaa! … Looks like Halloween got the better of me there. Find it here.
