Work in progress - More Raccoons!

Just posting a little update on what I've been working on since I haven't posted in a while. I decided to change my idea for my Nursery of Raccoons illustration as I liked the idea of having the characters marching over the hill in reference to 'The Grand Old Duke Of York'.
From left to right the characters are Bo Peep, Little Miss Muffet, The Grand Old Duke Of York and Humpty Dumpty. (The one at the bottom was just inspired by the nursery rhyme 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat).
I still need to work on the background, which I'll probably get done next week.

Raccoons, raccoons, raccoons.

Thought I'd post a little bit of development on the illustration I'm working on at the moment. It's based on the collective noun for raccoons, which apparently is a nursery. I've therefore decided to draw all the raccoons as nursery rhyme characters, because I couldn't think of anything cuter. Still need to sort out a few things (I'm looking at you, tree) and decide how I'm going to colour it... but here's where I'm at!
