+ Groundhog  Day

Challenge #1

Can you draw a groundhog coming out of the ground looking for it's shadow (if it it is there, then spring will come early this year :-)?

Did you know: According to legend, if the groundhog comes out of his burrow on february 2nd and does not see his shadow then, spring will come early.

Challenge #2

Can you draw a groundhog with really long front teeth?

Did you know: Just like their squirrel cousins, groundhog teeth never stop growing. Averaging growth of 1/16 of an inch per week, a groundhog’s front incisors are usually 4 inches long. These teeth don't have enamel on the back, and groundhogs bite off vegetation and chew through roots so they can keep their teeth trim.
