aww he's so adorable! /squishers the bat i'm glad you didn't make him look cartoonish, most doodles like this have the bat look like something that's a cross between Disney and Looney Toons. (:

I really hate to nitpick such an adorable critter, but I can't help noticing that you have given your vampire bat a leaf-shaped nose, which is characteristic of several fruit-eating and insect-eating microbat species but not of vampire bats. Actually, the white facial markings suggest that your model may have been a Jamaican Leaf-nosed bat, which primarily eats fruit and the occasional insect: the nose "leaf" acts like a megaphone, allowing the bat to project its chirps through its nose so that it can echo-locate while carrying a chunk of fruit in its mouth. Vampire bats have flat noses. (Also, if I'm going to get technical, the li'l guy should really only have one thumb on each wing, not two.)

Don't get me wrong, though: I love your concept! It's witty and well-drawn, and the big sad eyes just kill me! I used to volunteer at a place that has a captive colony of vampire bats - they get cow's blood donated from a kosher slaughterhouse.

This kinda reminds me of a character I created, Dawn, an anthro vampire bat.  She can't eat solid foods, so she has blood donated to her by various places.  Also, cuteness....

Thing is, this adorable little guy isn't a vampire bat but a fruit bat.
Amazing painting! Your eyes are always so intricate and layered, and your shading has often reminded me of some of Rockwell's standalone works.

he's so adorable. If it's going to him, maybe the needle isn't that bad. Maybe.
