Six Otters by defiance
While exploring the beach, Kylyn the otter girl found her animal counterparts. They're very curious about her!
An art trade with torchgirl18 on Deviantart.com of her original furry / anthropomorphic character, Kylyn Azur. She's got such a lovely character! ...and if you ask me, the otter girl's pretty dang brave. I finished drawing, looked at the finished piece, and thought, "I would never get that close to starfish that big." @w@
I wanted to go for something you might see in a 2D animated movie, so originally this was going to be a single-layer shade, but I sort of got carried away when torchgirl told me that she liked gradient shading. I do hope the idea's been kept with the background though. =)
I tried a lot of new things, including not only using black for the outline colors. Making all the colors less saturated than my past art was the hardest part. AND I AM SO PROUD OF THE WATER. <3
