This is part of the first project we had for my digital illustration class. It was a test to see what we could do in Illustrator working off of scanned sketches. To that end, this was made entirely in illustrator using a scanned sketch as a template.

Though they haven't seen much play, I consider these critters to essentially be my mascots at this point, at least as far as class projects are concerned.

The reason I call them Raquirrets are because they make me think of squirrels and rabbits merged together. The reason they have two tails is that their design is somewhat based on what I used to parody Smash Bros in EGS. In El Goonish Shive, there was a video game squirrel with two tails that, together, would conduct electricity. As far as I know, these guys aren't zappy, and focus primarily on being cute.

These three remind me of my cats so much, just because of where they're placed and what they're doing, that i had to laugh.

That aside, lovely. I thought when I saw the title that you were throwing racoons in the mix too, but these little raquirret kits are lovely.

They're adorable!
They look like they can actually move their ears any way they want. That would be handy.
If I had one, I'd be so afraid they might walk on their own ears and tear them or something...
