River Otter

This image is doing double duty. It’s #2 for the 30 day drawing challenge, my favorite animal, the North American river otter. I love drawing animals, especially animals with hair. Hair makes the best lines.

But I decided on a river otter because they seem to do such a good job at enjoying life. Whenever I’ve seen one, it’s either playing at high speed or sleeping. If I have to be reincarnated, and I’ve been very good in this life, I’m hoping for a gig on a nice broad forested river as an otter. A swamp locale would be okay too.

I worked hard to get a watery look to the background so I thought this would fit Illustration Friday’s “water” topic too.
