Viscount, interesting, the second time I ever hear that word is here, first time being in a manga I just started reading: Black Butler. Good manga too.
I think I'd have taken this for a larger dog rather than a red panda if the description didn't say otherwise, but solid design, even if the forms all come together in a way that they almost get difficult to distinguish between, tail and leg and all. Chest's almost like an extra face btw. :)
Also feel the speech bubble text could've been a bit more optimized to the bubble - some of it's crammed together a bit. But still readable, and definitely more fitting than a standard font. Keep it up!
