An otter girl, a quick sketch on 9x12 bristol for the Anthrocon 2006 art show.

I actually had fun doing this one, it wasn't meant to be perfect or flawless but just fun and a little break from building stress..and it certainly achieved that. Yes I am putting a lot of my pencil work in my scraps..not because I view them as scraps but because sometimes the work I secretly love I like to hide away where less scrutinizing eyes are likely to see. I am not perfect and sometimes all the criticism I get on some pieces actually gets me quite down..seems silly but sometimes I still feel quite small in the big ocean of deviant.. Plus I actually value the comments and faves I receive on my scraps more than on my deviations..its actually took the time to look at all the art I do..and I am humbled and honored by that. Thank you to you all!

tools: mechanical pencil on bristol
time:? 3 hours maybe?

I'm amazed by your lovely little otter. She amazes me along with the background. Truly amazing what you can get out of a mechanical pencil.

And I sound really dumb because I used three different forms of 'amaze' in that post. -headdesk-

Not only did I like it enough to make a fav out of it, I sent my friend Kajm to look at it as well. The composition and perfection of the otter girl, as well as the beautiful work of the setting and most importantly the interaction of all the parts involved... I can just really slide into this one you know?

I like how you used an otter! Not commonly done, and I like the paw prints... :D
