How to Draw a Raccoon for Kids

Artist: Dawn / August 8, 2011

Step 1.

Make an egg shape for the base of the raccoon's head. Add the facial guidelines and move to step two.

Step 2.

Next up, begin sketching out the raccoon's actual head and face structure. Draw in the cat like ears, and then be sure to make the cheeks kind of fluffy.

Step 3.

Here you will draw in the face markings that makes these animals so darn popular. As you know raccoons look like they are wearing burglar masks. Draw in these very markings on the face, and then add triangle shapes in each ear.

Step 4.

Okay guys working with the facial guides that you drew in step one, begin drawing out the perfect round eyes like you see here. Ne sure the lining is thick, dark, and bold. Draw in a small nose and then the mouth or lips.

Step 5.

All you will be doing in this step is drawing out the front of the body starting with the neck, chest and front legs. Be sure to draw in the front leg posed towards each other.

Step 6.

In this step you will be drawing out the back end of your raccoon for kids, and then draw out the long puffy tail. Make sure that you get those toes drawn in too. Erase any visible guides you drew in step one for clean up.

Step 7.

You are all done guys, enjoy coloring in your finished drawing on how to draw a raccoon for kids.
