A perfect rendition of an otter. You even captured the innocence of it's face. The colors are perfectly applied to the canvas. I wish I had a 6 to give you. Good luck in the contest.

This is really good. It looks so much like a photograph I had to look twice.
Your attention to detail is great. I love the softness of the grass in the background.
Good luck in the contest.

That is a cute wee critter.
You have done a phenomenal job at capturing that inquisitive look that most breeds of otters seem to have.
Great job on the fur, eyes and ears.
The surrounding foilage provides a nice background to the subject.
Well executed.

Oh you got that face and expression just perfectly Neal....spot on w/ the look of curiosity.

The way you've painted this also shows the texture of the fur well.....and the grasses- especially in front of her too. Excellent colors...throughout. Think the eyes could NOT be better.

A most delightful entry for this contest Neil. You've chosen one of my favorite little animals and presented her beautifully. My last gold star of the week- BAM...goes right here! Best wishes in the contest.

Oh my goodness...this is the cutest thing. You demonstrate an expertise with painting, that's for sure. That grass looks realistic and your little otter looks so cute, as if he's expecting mom to come back with a fish!

So did he pose for ya? Wink. This is awesome. The facial expression is excellent. The body form and language is excellent. The shading is great. The blend of color is great. The depth is great. The creation is well balance and very eye appealing to the viewer. Creative and awesome work overall (clapping)
