How to Draw a Raccoon

When you learn how to draw a raccoon in profile, so you can see his face, chubby body, and fluffy striped tail all at once.

The best animal drawing tutorials are the ones that show students a clear view of the face, and include a side view of the body. That way the shape of the back, legs and tail all come into view at once for a very complete picture.

This raccoon tutorial checks all those boxes, and is made from some fairly simple shapes. Hopefully he or she will make a great companion to some future reports on these pretty cool looking animals. TIP: Don’t forget to make a nocturnal background when it comes to coloring.



Time needed: 30 minutes.
