Ancestral Pin Ups - Conner Cooper I am well aware that Sly's father isn't an ancestor but I wanted to include the man anyway. There's too much mystery surrounding him, I couldn't resist to draw him. We don't even see his face until Sly 4 but even then, it's a cartoon style in a flash back and not a normal drawing style. I usually draw the character and color them then I do the background but for this one, I actually did the background first, then completed coloring him. Obviously, I picked a museum for him to break in with some items already stolen. Maybe he already handed some off to his gang members then upon returning, the lazers accidentally cut away most of his clothes? I did try drawing crumpled up clothing but it didn't look right so I removed them all together. Since Conner and Sly look very much alike, I tried to differentiate them both by giving Conner dark blue boots and more marking on his fur. Originally, I wanted to color him as a dark blue raccoon since he has blue fur in the cartoon reveal but I didn't know for sure if that color was canon or not. He does smoke and I thought about drawing his pipe but I need to draw more open mouth expressions.
