The Hazel dormouse or “golden rat” is probably about the cutest little thing ever, so I made a picture of one sleeping in a nest (it hibernates 6 months a year).
Of course the nest is really a bird’s nest and not a rodent’s one, but I wasn’t looking for scientifically acurate here.
Leaves are painted in Krita, all the rest is in blender with some little post-post-work in photoshop.

I’ll join the orginal draft for composition as well (made in krita).
// EDIT: I followed your advice and I’ll join a second version, the rat is more curled up now, which versions looks best to you? //
Thanks for your feedback!
