I've been drawing soo many raccoons lately I'm starting to see them everywhere.
I'm going to phone up London Zoo tomorrow and ask if they have any raccoons. I think they will, but I don't want to spent £20 on a ticket to be disappointed. I need to see some in real life, it's hard to design a character without being able to see it 360°, and I need to see their behaviour so I know how to pose him.

Does anyone have any name ideas for my raccoon? I'm struggling to get past Meeko.
I originally thought of naming him after a Native American word for "raccoon" but Google is proving rather fruitless (as usualy lately, I never seem able to find stuff I need)

I think Scamper would be a cute name for a raccoon. :D Also, your drawing is beautiful! <3

So cute! What'd you use to paint him--the texture is really great.
Good luck at the zoo!

Thanks <3 It's just acrylic paint, but I sort of "stab" the paper with the brush to make him look fluffy, and then the bottom bit is just laid on really thick ^^
