A Sobering Moment

While I was working on this one, I was just so happy to draw Masha doing everything that makes her who she is. A tough little bear, focused on her goals, knowing an opportunity when she sees it!


The backgrounds were painted in watercolor using a limited palette: prussian blue and burnt sienna. I also experimented with limiting the saturation on the character flats to further control the palette.

Also… Woah! A hundred Rudek and the Bear comics?! We must be getting close to the end of Chapter 2 😊

    1. Exactly so… bladder control in combat, well, the best of us could lose it!
