Creature design / Concept art.
Moth-Bat hybrid.

Not sure if it's more toward Sci-Fi genre or Horror genre...

It seems more like some kind of trilobite or horseshoe crab than a moth or bat. Neither moths nor bats have such a thick, spiny exoskeleton.

What kind of bat is it based on? Common pipistrelles have toes and no thumb-toes, while this one appears to have thumb-toes like the hairy-legged vampire bat.

Aside from these peculiarities of design, which illustrate how this is not a perfect fusion of moths and bats but rather some creature with a few moth and bat aspects, it is excellent. It is amazingly detailed and exquisitely shaded.

Yes it's a hybrid, it is not a direct offspring of the two species.
Hence only some (not all) elements/characteristics of each species is present.

Thanks for the in-depth comment, much appreciated!

I thought I was the only person interested in moths, bats and hybrids of the above! hehe
Nice creature! Though I must admit the armour doesn't make me think of moths as much as it does of beetles.
