Howdy all, RaccoonPioneer is the name and drawing cartoon raccoons is my game. My interests in art has been heavily influenced by popular cartoon shows from the 90's and early 2000's.
My interest in drawing cartoons started back in 2008, after rediscovering Animaniacs. I watched the first 50 episodes within 8 weeks or so; but as I watched episode 30, I had discovered my present favorite cartoon character -- Minerva Mink. Moon Over Minerva, and more significantly Meet Minerva, got a good portion of my attention.
Finding various model sheets of the character, I began learning how to draw Warner Brothers cartoon characters. Through the course of practicing my skills, I had developed my own original character -- Raccoon Joe of Texas. Although I had created him back in 2004, which had been influenced by the release of Crash Twinsanity, I really hadn't taken the character seriously until I began drawing cartoons.
Though initially I drew Minerva primarily, I soon began to draw more of my original character, along with other original characters -- the Raccoon Pioneers. This group of characters, along with Raccoon Joe, has been created to make a parody of the legendary country group Sons of the Pioneers.
Beyond the field of drawing, coloring, painting and such, I also express an interest in writing. Presently I'm writing a science fiction story, and have been since 2004, and several cartoons involving Raccoon Joe and the Raccoon Pioneers.
