Hi Folks,

The story behind the reference pic:
A friend, from work rescued four baby raccoons that he thought were abandoned in an unused chimney. He said it took several hours to fish them out using hand-made snares. They kept them for three days playing and taking photos with them. Then the mother raccoon showed up outside the house, raisin a fuss. She wanted her babies back, so they gingerly put them outside and momma raccoon took them all back!

Thanks .s. j.

s.j. this is great! I like the way you have blended the pencil on the Raccoon. Also I realise how difficult hands can be to draw and you have done this brilliantly!
