I normally don't draw them as much as cats, I guess because I have 2 cats as reference, so I know their anatomy a bit better.
While waiting for a meeting to get underway today I scribbled some on my notepad... as you can see an otter pretty much took over the place.

So once I got home I got down to drawing an otter. What I ended up with isn't a photo realistic otter by any means, but I was going mostly for cute. I used several otter photos to get an idea of what their hands look like, ears and feet.
I must admit I never paid much attention to otter anatomy... most of the time I was just too busy trying to contain the glee whenever I saw a live one and never mind internet videos, my brain pretty much short circuits due to the cute whenever an otter appears. Still, I would love to go to an aquarium and watch them for a bit while making quick sketches.
