Went to the zoo recently? Made a new friend, and now looking to draw a picture of him? Or did you watch The Guardians of the Galaxy recently, where Rocket Raccoon impressed you too much to resist the urge of bringing the animal into your world of art too. Whatever the reason, here you can learn to draw a neat, realistic picture of a raccoon through the following step-by-step instructions.
Step 1: Draw a circle for the head, followed by an oval, overlapped by the circle.
Step 2: Draw the curved guidelines within the circle.
Step 3: Draw simple lines from the oval for the four legs and the tail.
Step 4: Start drawing the muzzle of your raccoon, using the facial guidelines.
Step 5: Continue drawing the rest of the furry muzzle.
Step 6: Now start with the eyes as shown in the picture.
Step 7: Fill the nose and the dark regions around the eyes with your pencil or sketch pen. Also, draw the left ear.
Step 8: Make the right ear in the same way, on top of the circle.
Step 9: Add some furry tufts around the face to make your raccoon look real.
Step 10: Make another layer of tuft, and add some details to the right ear as shown in the picture.
Step 11: Replace the top portion of the oval drawn in step 1 for the back of the raccoon. Also, darken the inner part of the right ear to complete it.
Step 12: Do the same for the underside of the body.
Step 13: Next, use the guideline to draw the right front leg, followed by the paw.
Step 14: Now it’s time for the left front leg. Make it a little furry, as shown in the picture.
Step 15: Draw the jagged line beneath the face to add some detail to the throat and underside. Erase the guidelines for the front legs.
Step 16: Start working on the left hind leg and paw.
Step 17: Draw the partially visible right hind foot and erase the guidelines.
Step 18: Use the guideline to draw a bushy tail.
Step 19: Erase the guideline and add some horizontal lines along the tail to make it characteristic of a raccoon.
Step 20: Fill the tip with black, followed by every alternative section, and your raccoon is done!
So, how did it come along? Don’t be too hard on yourself if it needs a little more work. Whoever gets a raccoon absolutely correct the first time they try? Just keep practicing and you will get there. All the best.
