How to Draw A Raccoon. The raccoon is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. Raccoons are mostly omnivores but will eat almost anything they can get their hands on!
Also, check our frog coloring sheets.
In addition, they are mostly nocturnal. H. they often wander about while other animals sleep.
Although raccoons are native to the wild, they have made their way to the big cities and love city life!
About fifty times more raccoons live in the city of Toronto than in the surrounding countryside and prairies.
The raccoons' unique appearance and extreme intelligence made them very interesting to draw.
That's why we've created a step-by-step guide on how to draw a raccoon, summarized in 9 simple instructions and simple illustrations.
How to Draw A Raccoon
Start by drawing a sideways oval shape on the top left of the paper. This creates the shape of the raccoon head.
Next, draw an angled figure on either side of the bottom of the head. This creates the distinct furry cheeks of a raccoon!
It's important to draw with a light grip and fine strokes when drawing an outline or rough sketch. This way, you can easily remove some parts of the outline you may not need later.
Erase the bottom part of the overlapping oval shape inside the figure. This refines the shape of the raccoon's head.
With this step completed, the outline of the raccoon head should now be cleaned up. Therefore, it should look more refined and visible.
Draw a curved line across the bottom center of the raccoon's head. Next, draw a small, sideways oval shape at the bottom of the curve. This forms the raccoon's snout and nose.
Ensure that the snout is slightly pointed towards the end - this is one of the raccoon's most distinctive features!
Don't forget to remove the part of the outline that overlaps the snout!
Draw two lines in an inverted V shape on either side of the top of the raccoon's head. This will form the raccoon's pair of ears.
Like the previous steps, remove any overlapping lines on all parts of the raccoon's body. This will keep your drawing clean, tidy, and, more importantly, refined.
Once you've created the raccoon's head, it's time to structure its body. Continue by drawing a round shape just below the raccoon's head.
Make sure to draw some spiky tufts of fur on the body's surface to give it texture and make it look furry and realistic!
Draw an elongated, pointed figure that connects to the raccoon's lower back. This forms the raccoon's tail.
Raccoons typically have thick, fluffy tails. So keep that in mind when drawing the tail!
Draw a curved, elongated figure with claws on the right side of the raccoon's chest to form the right front paw. Next, draw the visible claws of the left front paw on the opposite side.
Next, draw a wider, arched figure with one foot to structure the right hind leg. Remember that the raccoon's hind leg should be slightly thicker than its front legs.
Because the raccoon faces left, its left paw is not visible, as shown in the image above.
Raccoons have distinct patterns on their tails, so we'll work toward that in this step.
Continue drawing more parallel lines all along the tail. A "striped" pattern should appear on the raccoon's tail if drawn correctly.
Now draw a triangular shape in each of the raccoon's ears. This creates the appearance of inner or inner ears.
Draw two small circles with a smaller circle inside them on top of the raccoon's face. This forms the raccoon's pair of eyes.
Next, shade all eyes, leaving the small circles inside unshaded for a dramatic "shimmery eye effect."
Once we've drawn the raccoon's facial features, let's move on to the distinct patterns on its face. Continue by drawing two curved lines that connect in the middle of the raccoon's forehead.
Next, draw two curved shapes surrounding each eye. This is usually the part of the raccoon with a darker coat color.
That's it - you've successfully drawn a raccoon! Now it's finally time for the part we've all been waiting for - coloring the raccoon!
Depending on where they come from, raccoons' fur varies from gray to blackish with shades of brown to silver.
You can color the raccoon in its original colors or use a unique color set. Either way, we're sure the colors will turn out gorgeous!
