Loved too much... by Mizu-no-Akira Loved too much... by Mizu-no-Akira
Here's some Ashfur fanart :3 I just loved this quote. Sadly, I never read the books... maybe I should do so...
Anyways, I hope you like my interpretation of the scene when Jayfeather visits StarClan and finds Ashfur there, after Hollyleaf killed him. He was kinda psycho before he got killed, so I guess Jayfeather was quite confused about finding him there. But I think Yellowfang, who said this sentence :P, was right... he never did anything that'd make him a realy evil cat that doesn't deserve its place in StarClan.
I kinda felt like drawing him still behing hurt. I don't believe they go to StarClan with all their wounds that caused their death and so on... that's something physical and what goes to StarClan is just their "souls" or "minds". They imagine themselves as a young and healthy being, and so their minds are young, healthy, and unwounded, too. But in Ashfur's case I believe he's so hurt about not being loved, that his mind got scarred and stayed wounded.
...Goddamn I'm really bad at explaining in English -_-' Sorry guys.
Anyways, hope you like it^^ Next upload will be the 10th site of my comic :D

:/ ashfur tried to kill four of his own clanmates, one was leader... I understand him being upset, but he brought post-breakup drama to the next level.

Hi Mizu-no-Akira,

I know that you are busy with a lot of things (Your AWB comic which I am addicted too, all of these wonderful scenes which are just so pretty!!!) but I was wondering if you could help me out. I know that at some point in the recent past, someone did a drawing of Ashfur in this pose without giving you credit, and was then reported to you. You then directed him to your piece with a post that said

"Coincidence? I think not ^^"

Is it wrong to copy a pose without giving credit? I just had a pose that I created used by someone else, and was then shouted down several times about "being stupid for protecting my pose." I remembered when you did the same thing, and I was wondering if you could give me some advice.

Thank you  so much, and I understand if you cannot take the time to respond.

Fluffy

Hey^^
Well it's not a problem to take the pose of someone else, as long as you don't copy ALL details. It has to at least look like you drew it yourself and just used the pose of someone else's drawing as a reference.
The the real problem is, that sometimes people use the references and copy EVERY little detail, every tuft of fur, just everything, so it just looks traced over. No-one can distinguish your art from the original.
So if someone used your picture and it looks exactly like yours, it's okay to say something.
When I wrote that comment I didn't want him/her to delete the picture, but in the end the user decided it would be best. o.O It was just quite close to my own picture, even the ears and everything... and well In my opinion people should just draw their own stuff. It's quite cool to see that people like my art enough to take them as references, but... I don't know why they don't draw what's on their own mind.
All in all I'm quite inexperienced with this, too. But I want people to improve their skills not by taking my art, but by practicing. At least that's what I did to improve my drawings... why shouldn't other people do this as well?
So I don't get why people shouted your descision to protect your pose down. It's your right because YOU drew it first.

Thank you so much for your advise Mizu ^^ In the end I ended up doing something similar to your post, and he decided to credit my drawing as his reference, so everything worked out :) 
I really admire you as an artist, and I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question ^^
