Fools Love by lucity Fools Love by lucity

Little personal fan art

Even though I do feel like I've out grown the Warriors series (I started reading them when I was 11) I still wanted to make a tribute picture dedicated to my most favourite character in the series: Leafpool.

This is a scene of her sneaking out of the camp to go see Crowfeather, her love, at the border in a secret meeting. I know, there's many errors in the picture, but this is how I imagined her - golden brown with a hint of ginger, with green eyes like leaves instead of amber. They were my most favourite couple, even though their relationship was 'foolish' to begin wish and caused them a lot of pain and controversy in the future. I felt so sorry for Leafpool in that time, and she was a character I connected with the most.

Anyways, I hope everyone enjoys the picture! I started over a week ago, and worked on it day by day, little by little. These kinds of pictures take a lot of patience and hard work for all the detail... I really want to have a rough /painterly/ style, but I'm a perfectionist and end up detailing everything in sight!

And as promised,
Full step-by-step process can be found on my art tumblr HERE

It's been years that I've grown out of the Warrior's series as well, but coming across this fanart made me realize how much I loved this character. She was my favourite too. Such excellent art too, the eyes are beautiful.

It's comforting to see that not everyone hates Leafpool. I've always felt a special connection to Leafpool; for reasons of simply knowing what it's like to be the oldest and out-casted. I don't really understand why people get mad at her for being with Crowfeather, as really, people should be disappointed at Crowfeather. I mean, I love him and all, but I'm just so frustrated with him! I understand the Feathertail situation, and falling in love with Leafpool, but Nightcloud? It seems like he found a random she-cat, and became her mate just to fit back in with his clan. :cat: 

I really feel sorry for Leafpool, as there is no guarantee she can be with Crowfeather in Starclan. After all, Feathertail will probably latch back onto him, and Nightcloud might try to also take up some of his time. She just can't win. So, she'll really be all alone. Watching from the sidelines. I don't think she really deserves it, and I hate that she is a medicine cat. Honestly, it doesn't really suit her personality.

I just wish Leafpool had a chance to shine. Pusheen Emote

Haha, I think I remember reading that as well! It was a really exciting part of the story! I was sort of sad when she returned, she seemed so happy with Crowfeather, but I guess her heart was more of a medicine cat! And they are lovely characters as well! The most I loved was mainly Leafpool & Tigerheart! xx

lucity Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I think it's in the Omen of the Stars of the Warriors! That's when Tigerheart is introduced, but he's is coupled with another cat, not Leafpool! xx I don't want to spoil it for you hehe!
