How To Draw A Raccoon In Easy 9 Steps

The raccoon is a medium-sized North American animal. Raccoons are mostly categorized as omnivores, but they will consume virtually everything they can obtain.

They are predominantly nocturnal; thus, they typically roam when other animals sleep. Although raccoons originated in the wild, they have made their way into large metropolitan areas and thrive there!

Toronto is home to around fifty times more raccoons than the surrounding countryside and grasslands.

The unique look and tremendous intelligence of raccoons make them a fascinating subject to sketch. As a result, we have produced a step-by-step guide on drawing a raccoon, comprised of 9 basic directions and pictures. Have fun sketching a beautiful raccoon!

Step By Step Guide On How To Draw A Raccoon

Step 1:

Take a white paper and pencil and draw an eye shape as shown in the image.

Step 2:

Then connect this eye shape with a small circle. Don’t forget to check reference images.

Step 3:

Now, it’s time to draw raccoon eyes. Start drawing the left eye of a raccoon.

Step 4:

Draw two little circles with a smaller circle within the upper section of the raccoon’s face. This constitutes the raccoon’s set of eyes.

Then, create a dramatic “sparkling eyes” look by shading the whole of the eyes while keeping the little circles within untouched.

Then, create a little sideways oval shape at the curve’s base. This constitutes the snout and nose of the raccoon.

Ensure that the nose is slightly pointed at the end; this is one of the raccoon’s most distinguishing characteristics! Remember to eliminate the portion of the outline that overflows the nose!

Step 5:

Draw two inverted V-shaped lines at the top of the raccoon’s head on both sides. This comprises the raccoon’s set of ears.

Be careful to eliminate any overlapping lines within the raccoon’s body. This aids in keeping your drawing nice and, most importantly, developed.

Step 6:

Then, draw the raccoon’s body arms outline shown in the reference image and draw a king shape above the raccoon’s head.

Step 7:

Draw two oval shapes around the arms as displayed in the reference picture.

Step 8:

After that, draw the legs of the raccoon to make it look realistic and draw a tale of the raccoon and finish it with some lines as shown in the image. 

Step 9:

You have successfully sketched a raccoon; congratulations! Now it’s finally time to paint the raccoon, the part we’ve all been waiting for!

Depending on its habitat, raccoon fur ranges from grey to blackish with brownish undertones to silver.

You may paint the raccoon using its natural hues or a different palette. We are confident that the colors will turn out nicely in any case!

You have total control over the hues of your artwork. After all, it is your artistic creation! Have fun experimenting with hues! Fill grey, black, and pink colors in your drawing, as shown in the image. Also, draw a heart shape and other final details as displayed in the picture.
