We begin to draw a raccoon according to the scheme of a bat drawing. Draw an elongated vertical oval on the sheet of paper, denoting the body.
Add another oval to the body from the top. It’s small and slightly elongated horizontally.
Outlines of the head
Draw the outlines of the muzzle on the head at the bottom. This part looks like the lips.
Draw two curved lines from the bottom of the oval. Together, they should resemble a hat.
The oval denoting the head can be erased. Next, draw the ear. It’s not on the top but a little bit on the side. Draw an elongated irregular rectangle in the ear; it will separate the outer and the inner side of the ear.
Turn the lower oval into the body of a raccoon. Draw the left part in the form of a curved line.
Also draw the right side. Pay attention that the lines on the left and right must be symmetrical.
Draw the second ear of the animal on the right part of the head.
The oval which denotes the body can be carefully erased, leaving only the outline of a raccoon.
Start drawing the limbs. Draw the raccoon’s left paw. It’s bent at the elbow and pressed to the body. Don’t forget to draw another curved line along the body.
Draw the fur on the belly of the animal using the wavy lines.
Spots on the muzzle
The fur on the raccon’s muzzle is predominantly black. It seems that the animal wears a mask like a superhero. Therefore, draw two spots that resemble the eyes and give the right shape to the hair on the head.
Draw the eyes inside the spots. Raccoon’s eyes are small, round and look like the beads. Draw an oval nose and a smile under the eyes.
Draw the lower limbs of the raccoon. The animal’s legs are short contrasting with the upper limbs which resemble the human arms. All you have to do is draw a foot. It’s turned left. Add a fist to the upper limb.
In the same way, draw the right foot, which is turned to the right side.
Start drawing the tail. The raccon’s tail is similar to the tail of a squirrel: It’s long and fluffy. But notice that the raccoon’s tail is striped, so don’t forget to draw the stripes.
Add the right foot to the animal. The raccoons are friendly that’s why the paw is lifted up. The animal welcomes everybody.
Don’t forget to erase unnecessary lines where the right foot begins. Also pay attention to the small details.
Usually raccoons are black and white with gray fur on the back. But you can color it as the famous raccoon Rocket from the “Guardians of the galaxy”. The child will be happy if he or she has such a funny character.
