The One-eyed Raccoon

Here is my first stab at the One-eyed Raccoon character featuring in our Arcana story.
This little guy was created by James Pearson, he is the form that the Devil takes on the Bayou.

With this character the only reference I was given was to which eye was missing. So to make this guy feel more sinister and malevolent I decided to approach him with the idea that the devil's spirit is animating the corpse of a Raccoon.
I wanted to try and make the Raccoon look extremely ragged and emaciated with bare bone showing between threads of fur and flesh. The only aspect that should look alive is his left eye, (and occasionally a red glow in the hole of his right socket when he's at his most evil!)
