Inspiration and Artblock

I decided to visualise quickly 'Inspiration' and 'Art Block'
Inspiration is a temptress, promising an eternal relationship.
Art Block hides behind her shame, seeking comfort in idleness and lack of life.
I was thinking of characterising these two, could be interesting y/n?

Nick Leaps

Nick the Raccoon. Story is really not fleshed out enough yet, but I can tell you he's a thief and his best friend is a glow worm named Tickles. He's got a love interest who is unnamed but is a pain in the arse and generally  not very nice. She's a mechanic and abhors crime - which is where our anti-hero clashes.
I was requested to draw a raccoon by a kid at school and all week I've been drawing Nick (who was working-titled Ralph at one point). Sometimes he wears a scarf, but he likes to collect umbrellas.
Trying to come up with an ethical reason for thievery is not easy. I dont really want him to fall into the Robin Hood trap. I like the idea of having a main character who's not innocent.
Expect more Nick, Tickles and Unnamed Female Character soon.
Not so sure what to do with Bonnie! Rounded face test.

De-saturated render of 'Polka' - I think I like it de-saturated more
Nick and Tickles. They refer to themselves as The Nickles. Glow worms are great for providing light at night :)
Nick here with darker eyes and lighter fur. Still testing colours.

What were you actually thinking?!

I really enjoy drawing Nick. Here are some pencil sketches of him getting angry at someone and then going in a huff. Which he does a lot.

Fanart alert

Some fanart. Sketch of Bolin from The Legend of Korra, which is one of my favourite shows ever. Really glad I decided to watch it!
