Life Drawing

I have started going to life drawing sessions, as painting people is sometimes a weak point.
Here is more info about the class...

It was my friend's birthday recently, and she loves otters, so I drew her this. I hardly ever use pencil, so it was quite a change for me.
I definitely would like a pet otter now please.
