Five-Finger Discount by CalamityKangaroo Five-Finger Discount by CalamityKangaroo
Here's a pencil test of the shady raccoon from here, calamitykangaroo.deviantart.co… , stealing everything he can get his hands on.

And remember kids, stealing isn't just wrong, it's illegal!
(...and don't touch my Billy Joel CDs either.)

If you'd like to catch a version of this with sound, then pop over here: www.facebook.com/video/video.p…

Thank you very much.

Just remember: this is a professional cartoon character in a controlled scene. Do not attempt. Theft is a crime punishable by jail time up to getting your hands cut off, depending on where you live.

I will never want to do that! I had fears of copyrights from the studios! Unless if I put you for credit, I'll be saved! I'm just telling you that! 80

Oh, hahahaha! But I was serious about using characters that are owned by a studio or company! That's why I barely draw anything like sonic, mickey, Mario, or all that!

It's just a saying, okay? I know it's actually four, just let it go...

Sorry, but that's about the third comment I've gotten about the fingers.

Exellent animation, though I feel sorry for the poor Raccoon, being the subject of a racial stereotype. DARN YOU, SLY COOPER! :D Isuggest Mr. Joel sorts the problem out with the source, the very character I mentioned above. :D

Actually, I think that would be a species-ist stereotype. It's probably because of the mask thing; that and the fact they actually will steal your garbage...

Ah tat was it, my brain was still set to 80% working copacity when I wrote that. :D Well foxes still rubbish too, but they don't wear masks....except the ones on Space Gypsy Adventures, particularly the two main characters of that show. :D

Thank heavens for Kevin Gillis and his raccoon-friendly cartoon show. :)

But what's this "HTP" you speak of? Humphrey the Taxidermy Panda? Hippies That Perspire, maybe?
