I can kinda see why people think Balto, the expressions, the bottom one looks like Steele when Balto said he won the race to help save the kids, that shocked/appalled look. But other than that, I see no resemblance to Balto style. But lovely work as aways Kay^^ Looking forward to see more stuff from the comic, that I sadly need to really get up to date on/
Color and floofiness = Banehallow ? Or if not, maaaybe a new sibling for Swift and/or Blood (if they stay sisters) *.*? There's also the possibility of an uncle or some such ^^. I like him, he looks like a rather nice and calm guy.
Though, I was also reminded of Balto somehow XD, but for me it looks like Balto's son, in a different style XD.
