Look out to the future
But it tells you nothing
So take another breath
Your hands protect the flames
From the wild winds around you
Icarus is flying too close to the sun
And Icarus's life, it has only just begun
And this is how it feels to take a fall
Icarus is flying towards an early grave
You put up your defenses when you leave
You leave because you're certain
Of who you want to be
You're putting up your armor when you leave
And you leave because you're certain
Of who you want to be, oh

Tadaa! Another quick-piece I started last week, but couldn't find the time to finish until this evening.^^
Again it's - more or less - a scene from the first Warriors-arc. The quote's actually from "Secrets of the Clans", but the scene also shows Swiftpaw's death from the first series. One of the most shocking death's in my opinion. His only dream was to become a Warrior and to show how brave and strong he could be. And in the end he couldn't live long enough to fulfill that dream... But at least he died fighting like a true Warrior - and I'm quite sure he saved Brightheart's life by fighting and distracting the dogs.
After finishing I noticed, that - eventhough he might've been a little old for an apprentice - Swiftpaw is a little too big in this picture. He looks like a full-grown cat in comparison to that dog... but well, as I said, I noticed it after finishing and saving the pic. ^,^'
I hope you like it. I thought the song would fit - I really love it... it keeps giving me the chills.
The next upload will be some of my own stuff.^^
