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.

I'll admit I frequently switch between projects, especially my Illustrator projects, as I've done between my "Northern the Steam Train" drawing and my upcoming "Angela Fox at the Beach" drawing.  Keeping to one digital art project over the course of days tends to make me less motivated in completing the work and, should I hold off on such a project for too long, a month-long duration at minimum, completely abandon it.  Northern the Steam Train took me several months to complete, as the connecting rods and reverser gear were the most complicated parts.  Now that that project is completed, here are my next round of Illustrator projects that I have listed as high priority:

Angela Fox at the Beach
Entropys Discovery
Aya the Shy
Frost Feather
Thank You Very Much!

Once these are completed, here's the next round I've got set for the editing process:

Coy Raccoonette
Dragged by the Ear
Aya and Frank
Bullet-tail
Rob Raccoon

Until next time, check back often for any possible updates.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.  I appreciate it.

Did you know that President John Quincy Adams birthday is today too?  He was president back in the 1800s, and is considered one of the worst presidents in US history.  I also share a birthday with literary fiction writer E. B. White, who was famous for Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, just to name a few of his notable works.
