so cute. i want one >3<. anywho, not much to say on this one. the expressions are well, expressed in a realistic manner. the profiles are adequate, and the body structures are nicely done. it's nice how tha little one's tail is tucked in close to his plump little body (>w<), shows that he's scared, alone, sad. the whole picture gives that kind of fatherly or brotherly feel, which is nice. even for a sketch, it's not sloppy and the shading didn't create much, if any, smudging. of course, as always, everything is proportiate and the two characters meet eye to eye. it's nicely done and is very original, good job.
