|4th Place||Raccoon Patrick||TalyaRosToys (Natalia Roshchina)||Where is the fine line between joy and sadness? You can cry with happiness, and laugh. This baby raccoon turned out to be so touching, naive in a childish way, a little sad. I didn't finish drawing a smile for him, even though most of my toys do. I liked Patrick that way. I want to hold him close and caress him.|
