This is great! The first panel shows your admirable and elegant style of showing animals, their shading, and the surrounding landscape in a coherent way that blends together well. Very well developed style, for sure, but that's what you get for putting in so much practice and years of artistic development. The spiked explosion of Irving's surprise works well, it doesn't take too much attention but is still noticeable. And the speech- that's pretty clever. It's not some huge text, not WordArt style print, not an overdone OH NOOO!!!!! text box. Instead, I think you've really helped the reader connect to Irving, by using a realistic reaction for a character in trouble. I get the sense Irving is older than some young child cheetah, but not a full adult cheetah. So you've probably got the young adult YA or teenage audience pretty well covered with this scene.
And your art is so refreshingly different from what many people in our age group might call comic book, manga, or newspaper cartoon styles. I think a lot of the people who gave you over 200,000 pageviews would be interested in a published graphic novel from you. Maybe this could be it, or this could be practice for a later foray if that market interests you- though you would do just as well in animation, I expect.
AND DROPS OF JUPITER IS PLAYING ON MY RADIO. It was playing when I commented on your collab of that title. (I think you said it never played on your radio stations)
My secret- it's Train Radio on Pandora, which plays lots of Train songs.
