Bandit, from original pen & ink by Wayne Bricco


The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.
Psalm 145:9 NLT

So many furry critters out there... and so little time to draw them all! I have really enjoyed working on my fur techniques, but my favorite part of all is the eyes. I love capturing their personalities. I always draw the eyes first after I get the basic sketch done. It's like they are watching me draw the rest of the picture.

Kathy often sends me photos that she has received in emails and Facebook from friends and relatives. My files of ideas are bulging! One of Larry Rea's raccoon photos really spoke to me. I've had a raccoon on my list of possible subjects for some time and those eyes just grabbed me.

Larry gave the go-ahead and this is what happened. I named this little guy "Bandit" for obvious reasons. He helped me rearrange some of the foliage to get it out of his face and I captured him. Thanks Larry!
