Blue Otter by ursulav Blue Otter by ursulav
More fooling around with triptychs and bright colors. I really like the blue-violet with the yellow-orange.

This is an Asian small clawed otter, in case anybody's keeping track. They generally only come in brownish-grey, and while they are adorable, they also produce a stench that would knock a cow back on its heels.

6 x 12, original sold, but prints can be ordered directly at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

Fantastic! Amazing! You really captured the playfulness of the otter, and the bright colours are a great way to bring that out. Also, I love all the textures.

Aaaahhh brilliant! Of course, the colours and all, that just makes it that much greater ... but the composition, and the fact that it looks real/so cute! :D very well done!

Absolutely gorgeous colors -- so vibrant! And of course it helps that otters are just about my favorite beasties ever. This one has a beautiful lithe playfulness to it. Lovely work.

If I may ask, I'm curious how did you make the otter part - are these three panels glued to the surface or it's just carefully painted?

YEY bought this one at Anthrocon, wasn't aware there was an asian otter, and wasn't aware it would stink so bad lol. I thought it was just standard River Otter.

The ones in the Minnesota Zoo didn't smell that bad - noticeably musky, but not hold-your-nose-and-run. I suspect it depends on the otter's mood, mating season, etc. People tend to forget that they're related to skunks.

is it ok if i replicate this larger to hang over my bed. i just went to the chattanooga aquarium and there were otters and i feel in love,and this design just screams playfulness.It would not be for sale its just that you captured they're personality so well.

...Someday, I am going to have the money, and you will end up being that much richer, while I decorate my dorm with prints of phalloi, otters, and Saint critters.

I fear the National Zoo disagrees with you!

Mind you, clicking through google would indicate both are acceptable nomenclature...

I fear you may be looking at an Americanism which due to experience would lead me to agree both sides of the Altantic may forever have to agreed to disagree. Haha oh well, I've photographed them hundreds of times and over here the accepted term in all zooz is Short-Clawed.

And while I shall stick to my short-clawed guns I will however, bow to your superior artwork which by the way is absolutely fantastic, especially the way you contrast colours! x

I have to agree with you about the stench. My family visited the Atlanta Aquarium recently, and their exhibit was usually the least crowded part of the entire building.

Didn't keep us (and everyone else) from cooing about them, though.
