1. Begin the cartoon sea otter outline by drawing the animal's face. Enclose half-oval shapes for the eyes, with the bottom line extending beyond the lower corners. Inside each eye, draw a circle within a circle, and shade between them to form the pupils.

Draw a thick curved line for an eyebrow above each eye and an inverted triangle for the nose. Below it, draw the rounded "W" shaped mouth.
