Drawing Raccoons

The coloring of a raccoon makes them especially fun to draw, with the “bandit” looking eyes, light belly and striped tail. To make sure that the eyes can still be seen in the middle of the black crayon mask, try filling them in with a the black marker.

When it comes to drawing cute and interesting animals, raccoons have a lot to offer. They live all over the US in forests and woodlands, near farms and cities and have been known to eat almost anything. This includes clams, fish, nuts, fruit, lizards, insects and the occasional squirrel or mouse.

Though it was once believed that raccoons liked to wash their food before they eat it, today scientists think that’s not necessarily true and may just like the feel of water on their hands.

Why draw with Guides?

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!

Materials to draw a Raccoon

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.

  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
