Background story: Fallen Leaves Raccoons are usually found playing around the the leaf litter in the town of Fallen Leaves in the Tall Trees region. They have a unique trait in their vocalisation which almost sounds like laughter, giving them a reputation of being the clowns of Tall Trees. Their coats change colour throughout the different seasons to help them blend in with the environment.
This is another one of my region specific creatures, I wanted to take some inspiration from the Tall Trees region. Given that it's an incredibly leafy area, I wanted incorporate that into this guy. I have some amazing orange fur and so I decided on the Fallen Leaves region. I wanted to also incorporate some patterns into the fur. I decided to give him green eyes as it compliments and break ups the orange tone of his coat. Ochiba has the typical raccoon markings around his eyes.
Ochiba has a resin face and claws that were cast from an original sculpture hand crafted by me. His body is made from a thick pile faux fur which was designed and sewn by me, he has a wire armature inside making him fully poseable, his face was painted in acrylic paints and furred by hand for a seamless transition.
Ochiba is approximately 20x15cm head to tail.
