Don't Stop... by Mizu-no-Akira Don't Stop... by Mizu-no-Akira

"The road I walk is paved in gold
To glorify my platinum soul
I'll buy my way to talk to god
So he can live with what I'm not

The selfish blood runs through my veins
I gave up everything for fame
I am the lie that you adore
I feed the rich and f*** the poor

I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop
I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop"

- "Don't Stop" by InnerPartySystem


Once again: a scene I wanted to draw ever since I read it... but I neither found a good angle for it, nor a fitting song. And now I got both! *-* And I'm quite proud of it.
Anyways, this is the scene from Forest of secrets (the third book from the original arc), where Tigerclaw tried to kill Bluestar in order to become the leader of ThunderClan. His failed coup d'etat caused not only his own banishment, but also caused Bluestar's mental health to go down the drain. :( And I really hate him for that, because Bluestar was one of the best leaders ThunderClan ever had - and she's my personal favorite throughout the whole series.

I hope you like the picture - I kinda noticed (again!!) that I don't like to draw Tigerclaw. xD He's always lurking just outside the the frames of my pictures, you always get to see a limb or a tuft of fur... But there are like only 3 pictures in which you can see his face. See how much I dislike him? xD He's like a dark, malicious threat, never to be seen, but always there, lurking in the darkness... xD omg. I definitely need more sleep.

This was pretty interesting scene. Bluestar said ''what are you doing, I'm your leader'', to which Tigerclawstar had to reply "I'm going to kill you", as if it weren't obvious. Well, I think it really wasn't obvious (to Bluestar at least), that's also why she was so shocked. Judging by that phrase of hers I think she might have assumed Tigerclaw/-star wanted to mate with her, because cats bite when they are trying to both mate and kill other cats.
Just a theory... Trololol...

I found Bluestar's descend into madness interesting. Mostly because freakin Firestar was being all Gary Sue and her madness was an interesting twist in the story.

you know if ever they get the movie going for this, i can so see you working on the character designs for the film. You have great talent and drawing skills of different angles that it seems your drawings of the Warriors universe it actually looks like screenshots or something. Ever considering on making a project of web eppies and making your drawings come to life in an animated program like Maya, 3D studio Max, or Adobe animate? 

I truly admire your work of the Warriors fan art. You know how to capture their face expressions really well, as well as their personality. And your anatomy is really well put together. I love the shock and fear coming from Bluestar, and you make the shadow of Tigerclaw so intimidating, that i can feel the darkness and evil in his soul. Also love the lighting. Really great job.

Also, you really capture the frantic movements of Bluestar and cat fighting in general! Awesome!

The fact that you don't like to draw Tigerclaw/star is kind of funny to me considering his sons are supposed to look practically identical to him but you have no problems drawing them XD but it is neat how you never quite see the jerk (I decided to look and I counted that you've drawn his face about 5 times, 6 if you include his muzzle from the part where he's lying dead in front of Scourge and Firestar).

Do you have plans to do any scenes from the newer books (the ones that come to my mind are Ravenpaw's Farewell, the first two books in the aVoS arc, and Hawkwing's Journey)? I just love seeing how you draw the different scenes in the series and now whenever I read them I'll sometimes get to a good scene and think "how would Mizu-no-Akira draw this?" lol

Also (sorry for so many questions! I understand if you can't get to them), do you think you'll do anything from the Dawn of the Clans era? I know some people didn't like the prequel arc and never bothered to read it (including Moth Flight's Vision).

After looking at this comment, I just gotta say, I love it. I love how very sarcastically written it is, because if you were serious, you wouldn't draw the way you do. I especially like the MS Paint version of your "sexy furry stallion horse" in your gallery. I understand you graduated from the Fine Art school of MS Paint fuckery in Dallas, and I just have to say, I'm a big fan of esteemed artists like yourself going onto other artists' pages and spewing your word diarrhea all over their wonderful artwork. You're very big league, Mr.  "The Art I Create Comes to Life from the Moment my Ink Touches the Canvas". Thank you for gracing us with your presence. :3

EDIT: For the love of God, Mizu, please do NOT learn anything from Joleyman2. Please.

Poor Bluestar, she gets more hate then she deserves, remember "Monsters are not born they are created" the actions of Tigerclan, her sister's death, Thistleclaw's intentions and so much more made her "snap" if none of this happened people would say she is more likable

Actually, Tigerstar wasn't evil at the start, but when he was apprenticed by Thistleclaw, she assumed that he would get a bad influence due to Thistleclaw's attitude and past. Tigerstar also lost his parents when he was a kit, which made him had mixed emotions.

And she also thought that Goosefeather was a freak lol.

Yeah I read too much about this crap.

Actually I think it's even better if we don't really see Tigerclaw on that kind of scenes since until that moment, he has always done his mischieves hidden behind something. So it's like the fact he's horrible is kinda hidden to, at least to his clanmates :3
So I really think it's convenient! I really love the picture ♡
