I suggest you follow a great drawing lesson in which you will learn how to draw an easy raccoon. This lesson will be very helpful for you.

So, I have prepared for you a fascinating drawing lesson in which I will tell and show you how to draw an easy raccoon step by step. This drawing lesson consists of nine steps, each of which has a detailed description. This tutorial I created this specifically for beginner artists and children, so you should not encounter difficulties in completing it.

Raccoons are carnivorous mammals. The body structure of raccoons is a bit like a fox or a dog. But raccoon paws are an important distinguishing feature of these animals, they have strongly elongated pads, somewhat reminiscent of human palms. Due to the similar structure of their paws, all raccoons have excellent grasping abilities. Raccoons climb trees with ease and can manipulate various small objects. The raccoon’s tail is long and usually bushy. The length of a raccoon’s fur depends on its species. As for coloring, all raccoons have a grayish-brown color, and their tail is painted with transverse black and white stripes. The head of the raccoon is very wide, has a short and sharp muzzle, and has small and rounded ears. It is known that all raccoons not only easily climb trees, but also swim well, and they can swim even in cold water, which is facilitated by the special composition of their fur, consisting of a thick undercoat as if specially adapted by nature to protect against cold water.

By learning how to draw a simple raccoon with the help of this instruction, you will improve your artistic skills, as well as be able to draw more diverse pictures. If you wish, you can supplement your drawing with the image of any other animals, as well as a natural landscape. For example, you can draw a raccoon against the background of the forest, and trees, and also draw forest animals around him, and thus, you will get a beautiful drawing. If you already want to start this lesson in order to learn how to draw a simple raccoon, then you can now prepare the necessary art materials, and then start following this instruction. I wish you inspiration, and I am sure that you will have a great time and be satisfied with the result of your work.
