Rocket Raccoon

Last night I did another video game related painting for the North West Majors, as my friend Frank is doing his best to have an art show coincide with the event. A couple of weeks ago I painted Quan Chi from Mortal Kombat for the majors, and last night I painted Rocket Raccoon.

Wait, who's Rocket Raccoon you ask? Only one of the most absurdly adorable heroes Marvel comics ever created, that's who. A raccoon in space who pilots a starship and wields a laser pistol? What's not to love?

Technically he's not in a game just yet. However, in November when Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 drops, Rocket Raccoon will be added to the list of playable characters. I'm really excited to see him in action!

Here is my painting of Rocket Raccoon:

He's ready to invade your trashcan.
The pen and pencil sketch
before I added watercolors.

Folks may be surprised to learn when it comes to drawing critters, raccoons are my favorite creature to sketch. They're so jaunty in their little bandit masks with their little not-quite-people hands. They're sly, fluffy troublemakers who only want one thing: our trash. 

Three playful raccoons I painted
about 4-5 years ago.
The Christmas card I painted for our loved ones last year.
The inside read: "Santa found that raccoons--loving
garbage as they do--were really, really easy to shop for."
This little guy was on the back with the words:
"May all your Christmas dreams come true!"

My only issue with drawing raccoons is once I start, that's pretty much all I want to draw for days!
