The Secret Side Of Him... by Mizu-no-Akira The Secret Side Of Him... by Mizu-no-Akira
Finally...
I wanted to do some Tigerclaw/-star fanart for sooo long... But I couldn't find a good scene to draw,'cause there are just too many pics of him showing him in that "bad-kitty"-way. I don't like that. And finally I had the idea to show him in a good and loving way :) I know, I know, he's a real badass in the series. But well... we cannot ignore that there was one cat that actually loved him. Goldenflower. And I think he loved her, too. So he wasn't bad at all... he just showed his evil-side more than his good-side...like it was his little secret and he shared that secret only with Goldenflower.
I hope you like it, I'm not that happy about it 'cause I love working with perspectives... and I couldn't find a way to add an interesting perspective to it.
Anyways, this is a scene from "Rising Storm", where Goldenflower talks to Fireheart about acting strange around Bramblekit and that she doesn't plan on telling her kits who their father was. I think in this moment she thought about all the good moments she had with him when he still was there for her. I guess she missed him really often after he was exiled :(

Next upload will be fanart for :iconspiritdaughter: ... take a look at her warriors-fanfiction "Falling Souls" ...I really like the story and the characters :)

This made me cry, being one who acually likes Tigerstar, and this hit me in the feels. Beautiful job on this picture. The detail is breathtaking and the way your draw cats is just amazing.

A sweet picture, reminds me slightly of Sasha's words to Hawk and Moth. The first book of the Warriors series I read was Sasha and Tigerstar's manga, and I fell in love. It was so sweet yet real; first Sasha with a crush like a school girl, then their cute first interactions with Tigerstar's bad-guy face and Sasha's cheery ignoring it, then their fights and their bonding and their final breaking. And after Tigerstar's death, when Sasha actually let herself love him. 

Do you think you could draw Tadpole's death scene? I've always looked for art of it, but there's barely any. I thought it was powerful and moving, when he sacrificed himself for Hawk and Moth, but it was also so tragic; Tadpole was Hawkfrost's big brother when they were kits. I think that if Tadpole had survived, things would've turned out differently . . .

No. Goldenflower is from ThunderClan and birthed Bramblekit/paw/claw/star and Tawnykit/paw/pelt, while Sasha was a rogue and came in later.

Poor Goldenflower, she is one of the less loved cats. But I think she is better than Sasha because she went through more. She knew Tigerstar since he was a kit and she was an apprentice...that is true love, even if it hurts.

Though...I'm still shipping Tiger x Moss (Bluestar's daughter if she had lived).

Awwww...this is so sad :( I always imagined that Tigerstar and Goldenflower really did love each other, but his lust for power sorta corrupted him and their relationship fell apart. But I don't think he used her for kits or anything like that...he genuinely did have a nice side. I feel so bad for Goldenflower...it must've broken her heart when he got exiled :'( Great picture, as always. i love what you do with the eyes :D They always look so shiny! And I also like how you showed it as being a memory, with a close-up of her face and the picture of her and Tigerclaw/star being a little father away...if that makes any sense ^^; Can I use this for a video?

wow...whats up with all the bashing comments. I love your picture by the way.Heart  You drew him and Goldenflower SO well.Love  Tigerstar has such a softness in his eyes and it just shows how affectionate...well....he once was.No, I disagree! 

Truthfully, Im not a big fan of him either. But if you really think about it I  think he REALLY did love Goldenflower. He just chose ambition and power over her. Just like how Brambleclaw almost chose power over Squirrelflight. He made the right choice. Tigerstar made the bad choice. End of discussion:happybounce: :happybounce:

whether or not you hate a character, is it really appropriate to bash that character on an artist's picture? I mean look at that quality, the details are lovely.  I don't like tigerstar either, but it's a nice change to see him loving for once. ....It's almost alien =3=

I think he just wanted kits that would follow in his footsteps. In the first series, I didn't like him. But in the 4th series he is just... ugh. I hate him.

great painting, I do think he would have been obnoxious and a brat always, but Thistleclaw started it all, he was evil from birth. I don't remember Thistleclaw's mentor being mean or evil...
But I Truly don't think that Tigerstar loved Goldenflower, I think she loved him, but if he really loved her, he wouldn't have done anything to jeopardize his place in Thunderclan with her. And he certainly wouldn't have went and had kits with another cat! I believe she had a crush on him, and he saw that as an opening to have kits to carrying on his legacy and do his evil deeds for him, which totally back fired on him.
I know people always see him as 'bad kitty' in an alternate universe where Like Bluestar was his mentor, he could have been a brave, loyal, and looked up to warrior like Whitestorm. But now he is just evil, his sole purpose in life is to torture Firestar. <3 Firestar, and good Tigerstar.

Wow. Beautifully said, and I completely agree with you. I think the main reason it back fired on him because he didn't think of one thing- They had their mother in their hearts just as well as his, and it balanced them out. Their wonderful, kind mother saved them, in a way.

I didn't realise this in myself until I finished the first book series, but I feel so horrible in the fact that Goldenflower had a whole clan around her - her whole family, her whole life - hating and damning a cat she loved and a cat she knew was good and could maybe be saved. Must've been terrible for her =[
