Year of the Raccoon

Though 2014 is the Year of the Horse in the Chinese Zodiac, it's going to be the Year of the Raccoon when it comes to the silver screen as Rocket Raccoon is to play a major roll in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy coming out on August 1, 2014 directed by awesome director James Gunn! 

I tried to make Rocket resemble Oreo Raccoon, whom Rocket's physical characteristics are modeled after,  to the best of my ability so far. The Chinese gateway in the background was pretty much modeled on the Gateway to San Francisco's Chinatown and Rocket is standing with one foot on a lucky gold coin! Gung Hay Fat Choy! 8D
