Start Up Your Wildfire... by Mizu-no-Akira Start Up Your Wildfire... by Mizu-no-Akira

There was a time when you could see that spark behind your eyes
When your heart felt like an amber glow into the night
Why did you let it fade?

It didn't matter if the walls rose up into the sky
You were a climber, I could see the view from way up high
Why did you fall to earth?

You got to reignite, feel the flame about to die
What's the use in all this cry?

Light it up, light it up, light it up
Light it up, light it up
And let it rage inside, start up your wildfire

- "Wildfire (Light It Up)", by Ivy Quainoo

Soooo, after almost 3 years I finally (!!!) found a good perspective to go with this scene. *-* I wanted to draw this for so long now... Every since the song came out.
To the picture: It's a scene from the book "Dangerous Path", where Bluestar saves Fireheart from the dogs by throwing herself at the leader of the dogpack and knocking him off the gorge and into the river. Yeah I know, it said that she threw herself head-first into the dog's flank, but I wanted it to look more dramatic. I wanted her to face her enemy without fear. I almost started crying when I read that scene for the first time, because I just knew that Bluestar was about to die and I really loved her character. Despite her ever-growing psychosis and paranoia after Tigerclaw's attempt to kill her. :( In that moment she was strong and rational again and could see clearly like she used to... and it just made me tear up, because she must've known that this would be her end. And she was ready to give her last life for the sake of her Clan.
In my opinion Bluestar had one of the best character-developments during the books (her super-edition included) and I didn't realize how much I miss her in the new books, until I re-read this scene.

Anyway... As always: I hope you like this little, spontaneous piece as much as I do. And for those who ask: No, her eyes are not violet, they're blue...They just appear to be violet because of the slighty violet-colored light I put into the picture. :)

Next upload will be the cover for the third chapter of my fancomic :D And maybe a little fanart for Colleen Houck's "Tiger's Curse". Any fans out there?? I'm reading the second book at the moment and I think I fell head over heels for Ren <3

Oh... One more thing: I have instagram now. :) You can find the link to the page in my deviantID, so if you want to see some hand-scribbled things and *ahem...a lot of* profile-pics of me, feel free to follow me :P

it's draw from a perspective and it's supposed to look like it's moving in motion, that's why it looks a little bit weird
TheTerribleDrawer Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2017  Hobbyist Artist

I love this picture so much!! Not only is there the blur and perspective on Bluestars paw to empathize how quickly she's moving and the power behind the attack, but there's also many other smaller details i see looking back. The flecks of saliva from the dog with some blood in it, and even a few strands of Fireheart's fur! Again, I love the intensity of this picture and just the drawing overall! Keep it up, ive noticed that you have a specialty for intense moments of action like in this, and some others!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you(( im sry

As a person who has been to psych wards as a patient, I can say that this is a pathetic chain with no evidence of truth in it. "Clarissa" doesn't exist. Mental wards have highly trained professionals and would not even let "Clarissa" hold anything that could be used as a weapon. Meaning: nothing. Maybe when "she" ate, but other than that, nope. Also, if "she" killed her mom and dad, "she" could be sent to a mental ward OR juvenile. Keep in mind, mental wards are for people who have things like depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or psychosis. Not for murder as there are other patients. The last time I went to a psych ward (August 24th), a girl I knew from a different hospitalization got arrested for assault. But she had no weapon, or anything to hurt. Just her bare hands. That's how these psych hospitals are. And they will keep you there for as long as you need. The girl who got arrested was there for 6 months. Also, the government cannot decide an execution. Courts do that, with a judge. And they wouldn't set up a "special room" to execute "her". There are already rooms for death sentences around the globe. So this is absolute bullshittery.

Awesome scene and music choice! You have helped me build up my music library XD

I had no idea you read "Tiger's Curse". I read the first book and could not force myself to buy the second one. I didn't like it at all. Yet I'm curious to see what you like about it, not in a confrontational sense off course. I'd just like to discuss the book and maybe tell me how the second one goes, I might end up wanting to continue the story.

I'm gonna read A Dangerous Path soon, and it pains me to know that somewhere in that book, Bluestar dies. Honestly I am not looking forward to it.
Anyway, good job on the art! Still sad thought :(

Mizu-no-Akira Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hallo! :D Ja aber natürlich. Ich benutze Photoshop für die Bilder... Wobei ich momentan überlege, ob ich nicht auf Painttool.SAI umsteige.
Crowerwe Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Photoshop. Ich hätte es wissen sollen. Haha :D (Big Grin) ich selber habe Paint Tool SAI :,) Man muss sich erst mal gewöhnen. Um eine Stelle zu markieren, musst das irgendwie einstellen, dass nicht das ganze Bild markiert werden soll :,) Ich würde dir dann den STift Binary raten, weil bei dem normalen Pencil Stift bleiben immer diese Punkte und es füllt sich nicht richtig mit Farbe ^^ Aber ich bin mir sicher du kommst besser zu recht als ich :,D
