How to Draw a Baby Raccoon - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: First off, let's get started with the head. Start by drawing an almond shape. Then put two triangles on the top of the head for ears. If you're feeling adventurous, make your lines sort of squiggly like in the picture—It'll show off your raccoons fur!
Step 2: Now, let's work on the face. Draw two large circles for the eyes, with two more smaller, filled-in circles inside those for the pupils. Draw an upside-down triangle for the nose, followed by two little curved lines for the mouth.
Step 3: For the front legs and body, start by drawing two curved lines coming down from the head. For the left leg, draw a line down and swoop it back up. Leaving a space in between, draw the second front leg the same way. Don't forget to add little lines on the end of the legs to give your raccoon paws!
Step 4: Now, let's draw the back legs. Starting where you left off on the body, draw two curved lines down to just above the front legs. Legs are tricky, so don't worry if yours don't quite look like the picture.
Step 5: Raccoons are known for their big fluffy, striped tails so let's finish with that. Starting on the right side of body, draw two curved lines that meet at the end. Draw more curved lines throughout the tail for the stripes. Your raccoon is done! Now that you're done, you can add some extra details! Raccoons are black and white, with large black patches around their eyes, making them look like little bandits!
