The Monster That You See... by Mizu-no-Akira The Monster That You See... by Mizu-no-Akira

Be careful making wishes in the dark, dark
Can't be sure when they've hit their mark
And besides in the mean, mean time
I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart
I've got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
That you’re the antidote to everything except for me, me

A constellation of tears on your lashes
Burn everything you love, then burn the ashes
In the end everything collides
My childhood spat back out the monster that you see

My songs know what you did in the dark

So light 'em up, up, up
Light 'em up, up, up
Light 'em up, up, up
I'm on fire

- "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark" by Fall Out Boy

Sooo guys, I'm sorry I'm in a hurry, I don't have enough time to write a proper artists-comment.
This is my very first "only"-Scourge fanart. :P I never read "The Rise of Scourge", but it's a scene that was drawn quite often. It's his first cat-kill. I think it was some rogue who came with Brokenstar, wasn't it?
The quote I chose sais it all.... in that moment he realized he killed an other cat, and he snapped. It must've been horrifying at first. Scourge wasn't born a killer after all. He was made one...
I think with this the small, vulnerable Tiny he once was, finally died. That's why I think the song fits him. Especially the part that sais "My childhood spat back out the monster that you see".

I wanted to record a speedpaint for this... but the program I use for this sucks...and movie maker sucks even more. I think I'll have to wait with speedpaints until I upgraded to Windows 7... Hopefully the WMM is better than the one Windows XP has -_-'

I hope you like it. The next upload will take me some time ;) But it will be some Jayfeather and Leafpool fanart to the song "Running up that hill" by Placebo... I love this song *-*

For some reason, if Scourge was in a real clan, I'd imagine him to be a ThunderClan cat. ((You know, without the collar..)) x3 Just felt like posting thatttttttttttttttttttttttttt.

I work with the XP Movie Maker all the time... yes, it has a major issue with crashing when I'm in the middle of something... But now that I've figured out how to trip the system I've had people asking me what program I use. XD Even terrible programs can be used for good stuff. (Now I get deep). Like with people. (I just got deep)

Scourge is my Favourite cat in the first series of Warriors.  I really wish he'd show up in the Omen of Stars...  But since Firestar killed him :T he won't show up.

I looooove scourge you draw him amazing 
Scourge is one of the most original characters ive seen in a while. Erin Hunter did a VERY good job creating him, i honestly like him more then a few antagonist in the series. His upbringing and his downfall was poetry. When he died i cried and every time i see a AMV of him and he does i start weeping a bit. Lol

Wonderful piece. I like how you did not add the whole 'Evil smile' and such as others do. Seeing as he is described as someone who has no emotions. And you captured that perfectly :0
