Welcome back everyone! Today I’ll be showing you how to draw a raccoon. Raccoons are famous for looking like furry little burglars, but I think they’re adorable anyway. So, grab a pencil and paper and let’s learn how to draw a raccoon!
The first step to drawing our raccoon is to draw a large circle for his body, and a smaller oval next to that for the head.
Next, draw two tiny almond shaped eyes near the center of the raccoon’s face. Raccoons generally have eyes that are fairly close together in relation to their head size.
Next, draw the raccoon’s famous mask that wraps around his eyes.
Now we need to draw two small “S” shaped lines at the front of the raccoons face for his nostrils.
Next, draw a small curved line extending outward from the bottom of the raccoon’s head, wrapping around his nose, to form his snout.
Now we will need to draw two large ears on top of the raccoon’s head, and a jagged line on each side of his face for some fur texture.
Draw the outline of your raccoon’s two front legs. Raccoons have slightly odd shaped bodies with legs that are very thick near the body, and very skinny at the end.
Repeat the same process to draw your raccoon’s rear legs, making sure to keep the legs very thick near the body and thin near the ground.
Draw a thin oval shape at the base of each leg for the raccoon’s feet. His back feet should be quite a bit longer than his front feet.
Draw about four claws sticking out of each of your raccoon’s feet.
To finish, draw the raccoon’s long bushy tail with several rings running the length of it.
Lastly, we need to give our raccoon some color. As I’m sure you know, raccoons are basically all gray with the exception of their black mask and the dark rings around their tails. And that’s about it! I hope you had fun drawing a raccoon with me. Be sure to share this tutorial on social media if you liked it, and come back for more tutorials every day! Happy drawing!
