Rocket Raccoon Sketches from Comic Cons

There has been a renaissance of sorts around the art work of Rocket Raccoon.  The once forgotten character is now bigger than ever.  What really makes looking at Rocket Raccoon art work interesting is that each artists has his own take on how to draw him.  Some look human, some look primal and some look cartoony.  They are all just so fascinating to looking at.  I spoke to some artists at different cons who are submitting their designs of Rocket to Marvel.  Some of these looks could be appearing in comics soon.
