Here is the progress on the otter head study. As you can see, I am staying on course for going right to left with this one. The background of the fur may need a little more 'fading out', due to its strong organic shapes. This is caused from the otter being wet in the picture. The clumpy hair, which was out of focus in the distance, took on a pattern all its own. Value wise, I would say that area is spot on, but I will have to see if it draws to much attention after the drawing is complete. The face hair and whiskers will be more sharp and in focus which should make them a good balance to the background fur. Only time will tell!
