Illustration Friday - Super Hero

Here we have "Rocky Raccoon-Defender of the Forest". He's faster than a speeding arsonist, more powerful than a bunch of bark beetles, and able to leap tall bulldozers with a single bound.

I'm not in the habit of drawing super heroes, so coming up with an idea was challenging. I finally thought that it would be great if there only were a super hero to protect the forest and it's creatures. Although I also thought it would be nice to have a super hero to clean my house and make dinner.

This is an ACEO, 2.5x3.5 inches, watercolor and pen and ink.

    He looks very noble indeed. I like how his paw is over his eyes to keep the sun out; It gives it a bit of extra expression. Good job.

    Although I admire his dedication to the forest...I only wish he would have mercy on my garbage cans. Great Work, fantastic job on the illo!

    Hmmmm. Protector of the forest or a superhero to clean my house. Selfishly, I may have to pick the house cleaner.
    Good idea for the topic. And, best of all -- he won't lose his mask.

    Yeah, RR is on a mission! He's very cute. Nice take on this week's theme. I too am not accustomed to drawing Super Heroes. I guess that's why it a challenge. ; ) Nice work.

    He looks like the perfect canidate for the job! He already has a mask anyway. I really like your idea about hiring super heros to clean the house. I could see a mass market for that one. I like your art.
