Derwent China White on black paper
6"x13" drawing on 12"x18" paper
10 hours of work
Reference photo: [link] by *A15-S

There will be no prints of this image. Original will be for sale in the Further Confusion 2008 art auction.

I've never tried to draw wet fur before, but I thought a river otter should be wet. I looked at a lot of photos of wet otters to get the fur and the head right, but I couldn't find a single one that gave me exactly the angle I wanted, and nowhere near the kind of lighting I wanted. The only direct reference was from the male nude that inspired the piece.
