Magnificent! :la: The lighting looks as if Mapleshade had set a fire to something and now revels in it, and it suits her so much. :nod: You portrayed Maple perfectly! The thick fur, the scars, the hissy face - and a leaf-like marking on her muzzle is a nice detail. ;)

Mapleshade looks so sassy and evil! I love the art style, so realistic! Mapleshade is actually one of my favorite villains.

Easily one of the best villains! I love how you drew her!

Mapleshade is the worst. She was spoiled and bratty from the beginning. She had kits with a cat who loved someone else, a RIVERCLAN cat JUST TO SECURE her relationship with him. She even said “Appledusk is mine, these kits will make sure of that!” she abused a dead ancestor, Brichface, and when Ravenwing found out he fulfilled his job as a Medicine cat And brought this dirty, lying cat to justice. She was even going to reveal the kits true father herself when she was sure it would be safe. So she decided to take her 3 moon old kits across a storming river at night. So she kills everyone. There is nothing good about her.

i disagree but those are valid veiw points but I see it as a mother who didn't think her actions through but most of the time had the best intention. "She had kits with a cat who loved someone else, a RIVERCLAN cat JUST TO SECURE her relationship with him" UM NO???? She never knew he "lOvEd sOmEOnE eLsE" until reedshine got cuddly with him. Mapleshade loved appledusk and he loved her. Appledusk literally snuck out to see her, it wasn't just one sided. And no she didn't have kids just to "MaKe hIm HeRs" remember all the scenes where she was loving towards her babies and when they were about to cross the river she literally prayed for starclan to take her instead of her kits.



"She even said “Appledusk is mine, these kits will make sure of that!”"


Well, to be fair. It was more of a jealousy thing than anything. What would you do if you saw a girl getting cuddly with your husband right in front of you. I would be pissed as well and say something stupid like that :/. And that's the only time she ever "used" her kits.



"she abused a dead ancestor, Brichface, and when Ravenwing found out he fulfilled his job as a Medicine cat And brought this dirty, lying cat to justice."


How??? Frecklebicth was the one who got up in Mapleshade's face just assuming her brother was the father. Mapleshade never even said yes or no to him being the father she just kind of made a gesture. And yeah she had a reason to lie what was she going to say when her babies were young and the fact that there is a war between riverclan and ThunderClan. What was she going to say that the father was a riverclan cat who killed your son??


"She was even going to reveal the kits true father herself when she was sure it would be safe"


I don't see the problem with that, she was going to reveal the true father when her kids were settled will literally what's the problem??.


"So she decided to take her 3 moon old kits across a storming river at night. So she kills everyone."

I will admit that taking her kids cross the river was a stupid choice but she didn't have many. Not to mention that Freckle scratched her eye and followed them out. Frecklebicth watch 3 children drown and you defend her but yet say mapleshade killed her kits??? Mapleshade made a stupid Reckless decision but she didn't have the intention to get her kids killed y'all really got to stop acting like she shoved their heads underwater.


Look, I don't wanna argue about a warrior cats character I just felt like putting my opinion out there. Agree to disagree?

ELROart's avatar

She lied by omission. Not telling her the truth counts as lying. She could have said her kits were fathered by a non- Birchface related cat.

ELROart's avatar

What? You only Said "th" ??.

Angelatheshittydog's avatar

DeviantART refuses to let me speak

ELROart's avatar

Oh, well crap.

You can't draw mapleshade without drawing crookedstar!

Maple was such an evil bitch, I loved her. Just ruining lives for fun...

Greystripe or leopardstar too, they're all good but I'd love to see what you think of leopardstar
