To be a Leader by drawingwolf17 To be a Leader by drawingwolf17
I wanted to draw something a bit more dynamic than I usually do. I think I mostly succeeded. At the very least, I learned one thing: I still can't draw rocks. But it's way better than some of my older stuff... Anyway, I have another little story to go with this drawing.

    Duskstar returned from the moonstone greeted by the cool morning light. Most of DarkClan was still asleep unsurprisingly. A slight breeze ruffled Duskstar’s fur. She took in a deep breath, closed her eyes and focused on the tranquil sounds of the forest. Her father’s last words echoed in her head “Be the leader I could not. Be there for Darkclan…”
    The clan was her responsibility now. Duskstar knew she would never live up to the legacy Nightstar created. And she was okay with that. She wasn’t Nightstar. She wasn’t even Duskfur anymore. She was a leader. And Darkclan needed her guidance.
    Illuminated by the dawn, she leaped onto the highrock and addressed her clan.

Warriors belongs to Erin Hunter. The character of Duskstar belongs to me.

of course! I never try to be negative in my crit :^)

I feel like your anatomy is overall good, but the shoulder on the front leg looks like it might be too low on the leg. the back leg looks a little awkward and I think it might be remedied by putting the back foot further back towards the tail? (if you dont use them already: references make my life a lot easier, just try looking up images of cats, yknow?)

the only other thing I noticed was something I actually do fairly often -- where you cropped out the very end of her tail. I dont know about you, but I usually do that because im too lazy to fix something so I cut it off, hah! either way, I think if you made the canvas wider or moved everything in the image to the left it would give it a little better composition overall

I hope that was helpful ^^' I really do like your art!

I agree. My anatomy can be a little shaky at times; it's one of the things I'm really trying to improve. It's nice to have a second set of eyes to look over something. Thanks for the help!
