This comic follows up this red squirrel’s unfortunate encounter with Masha.
That bear is supposed to be a sun bear. Though you can’t see his characteristic throat marking, I’m pretty happy with how his character design is differentiated from Malutki’s.
Finally, I spent a good amount of time trying to evoke the warm glow of kerosene lighting in this one. Not sure I want to spend this kind of time on lighting / shading in the future. Is it necessary to the style or vibe of the comic? Let me know your thoughts :)
