Blackstar by ashkey Blackstar by ashkey
I tried so hard to do this in under an hour... but then my mom came home with bagels. XD

I think I like Blackstar. The fact that he was still leader at the end of the Omen of the Stars series gave me many, many years to dislike him. So it's a fond dislike, lmao.

Okay, first of all, I love this. SO MUCH. So now for the pros and cons!

Pros:
- You shaded this brilliantly, everything shows this cold and brooding mood. Just perfect!
-This expression! It fits Blackstar so well! He looks so disgruntled!
-Anatomy. Especially facial anatomy. I just love it, it's so cat like!
-Composition. It's beautiful, I really love the flow of the picture.
-The fur texture! LOVE IT! It's simple enough not to distract the viewer, but realistic all the same.

Cons:
-The paw looks slightly too big. That's all. It's not even all that noticable.

Overall, I love this picture a lot! It's well thought out and very well done! Good job!

I love how you make Blackstar look so calm and cool and collected in this painting. He looks like an old cat that has seen many battles and I respect that. I also like how you made the background look so in tone with the white fur of Blackstar's coat blends into the background. I wish I could draw like that but seeing this beautiful artwork should be in a art gallery like yours. Thanks for your wonderful work. Adding the log makes me happy that some dept is made into this great art work, I respect your art and thanks for your awesome work. Well done.

We're all tired of waiting for Hollywood right?! This Warrior Cats movie should have come out years ago and here we are, after the last book in the fourth series, and still no movie!! This is why The Warriors Movieclan is coming together as a True Clan and working with one another to make this movie a reality! We need actors, animators, script-writers, musicians, designers and more so pitch in with us! It will be the first time that the fans actually made a true movie themselves, be part of the making of this movie and show Hollywood what they've missed out on!! Join The Warriorcats Fan-made Movie Makers group on Facebook, or if you don't have a Facebook account we also have a forum and a website. heres the facebook page:

Uh oh, I'll have to hide my feelings, to escape ridicule! XD Actually, I'm surprised how many people like him a lot. I guess he's been around enough to be a scary friend to us all

yep. even I feel a strange bond with him. probably because he's one of the few shadow clan cats to have survived from the first book to the very last.

Amazing, as always! Shading is brilliant, and so is the expression! It seems different from your normal style, though. I think the painted look does it. Can't wait for more from you! :D
