Folklore
Forced Transformation
Otter
thistle

This is a sketch sequence for thistle, for my 100 Sketch Challenge. The idea for this TF comes from a Tlingit myth regarding otters and what happens to people who drown.

Having fallen out of his canoe in a wide, swift river, this poor young man fights to find the surface in the current before he drowns. A seemingly ordinary otter passes, seeing that his struggles are failing...
