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,

leafpool character to the warrior cats series
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.
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.
Me too :0
And dang.. your art is amazing ;u;
Hehe, and thank you so very much for the nice comment love!!! xx
I talk some Vietnamese because my parents don't speak a ton of English.
And I was born in America x3
So.. I can't really read much Vietnamese.
Also no problem!!
Been speaking since I was a kid! And same here, I was born in America too, but from Vietnamese family! (:
I am curious! Does your family speak Northern/Central/or Southern Vietnamese accent? I'm guessing Southern, because they are more common?
Your greenery is sooo detailed! I can't even imagine how you manage to make it look so good (despite seeing the WIP xD)
And thanks so much for nice comment Choo! I don't know, it took quite a while, I'm so picky when it comes to details! xx
but yes, amazing ^^ i love the eyes and DUDE. step by step thing = love. :3
keep up the awesome work! c:
Leafpool is one of my favorite characters as well, and I really love how you portrayed her here. I thought Leafpool's story was really sad. You know, how in the end, she had kits but had to give them up to her sister.
Awe, thanks so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed my work and love Leafpool as well! Yeah, it is pretty sad, I felt so much empathy and connection towards her, I was heartbroken!
