This is really what I've been wanting to do ever since I created the character. Back when I decided he had to keep the proportions of a real-life mouse, I just wanted to see him running for his life on all fours. Sometimes I have to wonder if I'm not too mean to my characters.
I know the leaves look wierd. When I planned this out, I had thought of using some stock photo or using technology to ensure the leaves on the ground were in perspective. I relinquished that possibility when I went with the "I don't have time for this, I'll do it all in pencil" option. I guess it would've helped to have used real-world leaves as reference.
Now, if anyone has mice, I'd appreciate if they could take one out into the snow so they can tell me if I drew the snowflakes big enough.
