Baby Otter Finished

While finishing up this drawing, I remembered why I fell in love with the photo of this little guy so much.  Not only is he small and fuzzy, but he is in the process of being hand fed.  It represents humans interacting with nature in one fine moment.  Is there anything better than lending a helping hand to someone in need? 

My pencils were put away about an hour ago, and the photograph below represents the finish to a much neglected drawing...  There may still be some final touches over the next few days, but he is complete enough to be introduced to my blogging friends. ;)
   



I decided to start the 2013 year with this finish, instead of my usual New Year's post.  (That post will have its turn next.)  I believe that this little guy has waited long enough!  ;)    

Happy New Year! :)

"One fine moment..." I like that sentiment! You captured a moment perfectly! I smiled when you mentioned that it might be finished, or you might be tweaking it... I do the same thing. It's so hard to declare a piece finished. This drawing is wonderful!

I love the picture Brenda. I showed B and she went in and started painting with her water colors. Kim

Hi Kim... I am glad to have you stop by. :) B is lucky that you have given her the supplies to work with. I think all of the little ones should have some artistic space; especially since the schools are cutting back so much. Just tell B to keep it on the paper! ;) LOL
