Ya 'Otter' Relax!

Posted Aug 7, 2007, 3:22:51 PM

This piece was originally done for a contest for Perrier spring water for their new labels. I didn't win. A blobby, splotchy abstract piece won instead. I was clearly not what they were looking for, so I don't feel bad about it. In fact, it's their loss! Wouldn't this otter grab your attention if you saw him on a water bottle? Oh well. Anyway, I always joke with people and say "You have no idea how hard it was to get him to pose for me like that!"

    Aw! That would be awesome on a water bottle!

    It's really great, I love it.

    Brilliant ^^ Otters SO cruise through their day on the water, this is really perfect for them ^^ You have some awesome detail in this.

    May I ask though- is that sparkling water? XD LOLs!

    I was certain, from the thumbnail, that this HAD to be a photograph.
    Amazing work! Your attention to detail really shows here, as I feel like I could expect the water to shift as it moves now, or reach out to feel the otter's fur... or tap the glass and have it make that ring...
    The wet fur is so well done, looking just like I'd expect! I could go on and on about each aspect of the detail, but I'm just overwhelmed by how adorable this little fella is! ^^ I'd buy the water just to have the image of him, that company really lost out.

    I love this piece! And that sparkling glass just made the picture, not to mention that otter - it's just too cute.
