Forging an Alliance by 1-Renaissance Forging an Alliance by 1-Renaissance
From my first novel that's currently being written. I'll just cut to the chase and tell you what's going on.

Husk Reinstrom (squirrel in the middle) is trying to convince the otter chieftain Wolfiem and the squirrel queen Felka to make an alliance that would benefit both tribes and the Rebelpack (resistance fighters). They're both liking the idea it seems.

---Wolfiem: Chief of Wildstream otters, top Riverwolf, and twin brother of Kojen.

Riverwolf is a name given to river otter warriors. Sea otter warriors are known as Seawolves.

---Felka: Flying squirrel and queen of the Sprintwood tribe. The Sprintwood squirrels were astonished by her ability to glide long distances between trees. When she proved the victor in a death match against their leader, they made her their queen. It was a position she upheld well with courage and wisdom.

In past generations, flying squirrels never spoke but only used hand/paw signals and sounds. Felka learned to speak but has yet to improve. For instance, instead of saying "I" she uses her own name.

All this belongs to me.

Will you make more of the Flying squirrel? she's so cute and I have a fondness for them (small and cute) and then black squirrels and albino squirrels too

Oh yes I would! I really like this one but I'm afraid you'll find that there's nothing cute about this particular squirrel. Hehe, she'd shred your face. :D

I. Love. FELKA! She looks so cool!!!!! And the otter is good too; he really does look like a good skipper. The squirrel is cute; she kind of reminds me of Felldoh from the movie, but she's different, too. Maybe it's the facial expression.

Okay, squirrel in the middle is a dude. He just looks innocent. Either that or I screwed up.

I really love Flekka, too. She has an accent and has an odd way of talking as she leaves out some words and speaks in the 3rd person. Flying squirrels usually don't speak like others so it's rare that she can say anything at all.

Hm, maybe make the lines of the face bolder? Thicken eyebrows? Probably the second option. Men/males usually have thick eyebrows.

Heh, cool looking pair that otter and squirrel - they'd certainly work well together! :D
And the alliance would certainly benefit respectable woodlanders in general, in the event of a vermin-uprising in the future...

As usual, your pencil-work amazes me!
