In a result of a poll, this is Tigerstar's death.
Most ppl wanted me to draw this scene from the Warriors, Darkest Hour. But some wanted me to draw a scene from my fanfic xD So I did both. This is Tigerstar's death from my fanfic. Nothing different, only some aditional characters.

From left to right:
-Front: Scourge, Tigerstar, Bone
-Middle: Bramblepaw, Tallstar, Firestar, Shadowfang(oc), Onyxpaw(oc), Cloudtail
-Back: Blackfoot, Russetfur, Darkfang(oc)

Ocs used -

This took a while: 3 days to complete. I wasn't able to finish this only in a day cause i'm pretty busy and I wanted to give it my all. I'm really pround of the results!! :heart:

About the picture
Yea, I tried my best to make as little mistake as I could but I wasn't able to. When I was done with the lineart, I realize a whole lot of mistakes there that I could have avoided.

Firestar looks... small. Thats one mistake that stings my eyes. I'm so sad, I should have been more careful.

Scourge is just perfect. I always imagined Scourge as an average sized cat (while being a bit smaller than the others) with long legs :D! I dunno why, I always imagined him with long legs and a sleek figurine. Plus, it would be impossible for a small cat to be able to cut from throat to tail tip an oversized, bulky tomcat like Tigerstar. Thats why I gave him long, rather massive legs.

The background was sooo long to do but sooo worth the time! I am very very pleased with the results. Btw, it's dusk. Not dawn. Thats why everything is pinkish and light blue. It has been a while since I've read the 6th book of the first serie (though I should in order to finish my fanfic xD) and I never realized the time this scene took place. So I went and looked at many pictures of Tigerstar's death. Some were taking place during nightime, daytime, rainy night, stormy night, etc. But none were during sunrise nor dusk. So I figured out I'd be the first one making it take place duing dusk.

Anyway, I hope you guyz enjoy :love:
Sorry took a while before I uploaded the picture. It was ready since yesterday xD but I wanted to submit the speedpaint first.

Okay, this is my first Critique, but I'll try my best! :giggle: I don't really understand some of the stars (well, vision) so ignore them.

Lets start with the negative:

:bulletred: Tallstar's head looks slightly low on his body, and just looks a bit odd...

:bulletred: Cloudtail's paw looks a bit short and stumpy ( I don't know if it's meant to look like that :XD:), but it looks a little out of proportion.

:bulletred: I think I can just about see it, looking very closely, but you can barely see Bramblepaw's pupils.

Positive! :iconimhappyplz:

:bulletgreen: I LOVE the look on Scourge's face!

:bulletgreen: I love how the fur bristles on all the cats and the direction of how Tigerstar's fur has been ruffled.

:bulletgreen: I love how the blood has soaked into Tigerstar's fur :D

:bulletgreen: I absolutely love how the eyes glow on the BloodClan cats!

:bulletgreen: I also love how the apprentice is backing away and how it's back is arched!

I hope you find it fair :)

Tigerstar looks a little too bulky to me

Tallstar's head is a little low on his shoulders

I can't see Bramblepaw's or Bone's pupil


Very well defined

Good positions for all cats especialy Scourge

I like the look on Scourges face and the glow in his eyes

Perfect amount of blood. Not too much not too little

The apprentice on the right looks just the right size and looks terrified.

All expressions look correct for the moment

Original because most pictures of his death are of him dying, not being dead.

I like how the cats are running away on the side

I get a sense of action, like all the cats are about to burst out in emotion

VERY Nice job!

I feel like Fire heart's eyes should be a very very VERY light green.... but other than that I love it! I love the collars in the blood clan cats and the resemblance between bramble paw and tiger star. Heart 
GingerLuck Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Why did starclan make tigerstar leader didn't they see him murder and try to kill bluestar just to be leader, what a trailer.
Yolly-anda Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2016
I have no idea :T
Swirly-Draws Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2015  Student General Artist
I was wondering why StarClan made Tigerclaw/star a leader? 
Yolly-anda Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2015

can't see Bramblepaw's pupils
Tallstar's head is a little low

Love the whole picture!!

Tallstar is like "I do wut i want"
queenbananagrams Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Bramblepaw's pupils are a little darker than his iris due to the far distance. If you shone a light in his pupil, it wouldn't be black. In thus, the sunshine is probably  being shone into his eyes.

Also, Tallstar is not young in this scene, he can't hold it as high as a younger cat would. (I mean, he was still a bit old in this scene.
I have 3 questions:

⚫️ Why did Rusty change his names so many times?

⚫️ Are some of the villains in the books sorry for their plans explaining their deaths?

⚫️ Who the heck should I ship rusty with?
Nyltiac-and-Firestar Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Warrior cats change their names as their lives go on. Example: Rusty was his name when he was a house cat (Aka: kittypet) He became Firepaw when he became an apprentice ("paw" is always the suffix of apprentice names). Then he got his warrior name, Fireheart. Warrior names are determined by how they look or something they do upon reaching the proper age and completing the assessment. Leaders then get "star" as their suffix to signify them getting nine lives from StarClan.
I hope this helps, though I can't really answer your other two questions

The real one? I'm not sure Tigerstar was a real cat, I know Firestar was. If you mean in the books, this is from the books.

One question: ¿when you submit art  (paintings) like this, do you say it has mature content? I ask becouse i do paintings like this and I don't know what to do when I submit they :(  And by the way I love this draw :)
Yolly-anda Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014
I guess if it's really gore? This one isn't too much so I didn't I think. But if there's a whole lot, yes I guess
