RaccoonPioneer's Profile Picture
RaccoonPioneer
William
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Howdy -- I'm RaccoonPioneer, an independent cartoonist with a vision to become a professional in the field of cartoons. My real name is William and I'm from the former coal mining and steel mill capitals of the world, Pennsylvania. While I may not draw as frequently as other artists, and my techniques may have become obsolete, I tend to stick with a draw-on-paper, edit-with-software approach to my art. Most of my drawings you'll find in my gallery were drawn on paper, and then edited in Photoshop (for my earlier drawings) and/or Illustrator (for my more recent drawings, starting in 2013). I'm also exploring the option of animating my cartoons, though my efforts have been limited. Only one of my many drawings has been animated, though incompletely while looping every 2-3 seconds; it's a start.

In addition to the cartoon drawings in my gallery, I also post my own astrophotography images. This is another one of my artistic hobbies, and a fairly recent one, combining the hobbies of astronomy and photography into a common past time activity. I would consider myself a beginner astrophotographer. This is due to my limited window of opportunities; this is a hobby that requires ideal weather conditions -- no clouds, limited moisture, etc. -- and little, preferably no, light pollution (artificial light). Despite these limitations, I will be expanding on the astrophotography section of my gallery in time.

Feel free to drop by and chat, whether by posting on my profile or sending me a private message.

Normally I only photograph landscapes and deep-space objects with my Canon Rebel T3i DSLR, although now, being within an hour from a major rail corridor, I may begin a series of trainspotting photos.  You've seen a few photos of steam engines from various tourist railroads in my gallery.  Now it's time to get some modern North American railroading a part of my collection of trainspotting photos.  This weekend will mark the first time in years since I've gone trainspotting.  I had originally given up on the hobby, due to the sudden changes in course that was necessary; I'd be riding down the main road, only to catch a train in the corner of my eye, and then I'd have to change course very quickly, or speed up to beat the train to a rail crossing.
