Animation II: Quick Character Design

Here's a quick character I am creating for my next animation assignment. We have the option of either using one of four pre-set characters, as well as the option of making up our own. The goal of the assignment is to have the character pick up a box and a fridge, showing believable weight.

Also, I have sworn off doing any coyote/doggy characters for awhile. I was thinking of doing a reptile but... in the midst of my thought process, I am thinking "why pick up a fridge?" "to steal a fridge" "what type of thing steals?" and, voila - a raccoon. In a ski mask.

Inspiration/Reference and my doodlework/initial idea sketches. More to come!
