My otter character, Alex, is about to leave for her first day of work at a local chocolate/sweets shop (thinking of calling it "Nothin' But Truffle"). She likes to take pictures of big events like this so she can remember them for later, so she's get her phone precariously balanced on a nearby shelf to capture the moment.
I did this up as a random sketch while I was relaxing for the night, not really meaning to take it anywhere. Then I decided to finally buy a light box, and told myself this would be the drawing I used to test it out. Funny story, but I actually bought myself a light box the very same day that Toby saw one posted on Meh (a daily sale site) and bought it for me as a surprise gift. He was about to leave for work when the mail deliverer was outside with a package for me, and I said "Oh hey, that must be my light box." Toby turns around like "What the hell how did you know what was in that?!" And that's when it came to light that we'd both bought one, ha ha. Even funnier to me, it turns out the one on Meh was the very same box I ordered myself! Excellent choice of box, husband~
I'll color this eventually in my spare time, so look forward to seeing her in color one day!
