Briarlight - Losing Strength by Idess Briarlight - Losing Strength by Idess
SPOILERS FOR WARRIORS: FADING ECHOES

Fanart for the "Warriors" book series, this of Briarlight after her accident that broke her spine, rendering her entire back half useless.

I didn't really -like- Briarlight as a character, but what happened to her in Fading Echoes is something unique and I think was a great thing to put into a series that can get a bit repetitive. I also like the idea of her bright personality despite her condition.


The description for Briarlight just says 'dark brown', but that's boring! I added a little bit of lighter areas and a faint tabby in there to make her look pretty.
Just a little Warriors fanart :)

Character belongs to Erin Hunter, from the book series "Warriors"

I love Briarlight, it is so unfair that this had to happen to her! She was just trying to save Longtail, but he died anyway!!!:crying: rvmp

Honestly, of all the Briarlight pictures I have seen, I absolutely, hands down, think this is the BEST! It's all so perfect, and the anatomy gives me hope for the Warriors fanbase.

Briarligth is one f my favorties because of her bright attitude towards getting better... but it makes me feel like Honeyfern died for nothing when she saed Briarlight when she was a kit from the snake. Honeyfern was my favorite.

Ok i'm not saying this directly to you, just in general. A lot of people are say things like Honeyfern died in vain.
But really she died saving a kit, she couldn't have known what was going to happen. I don't understand why people like Honeyfern so much that they wish Briarkit had died instead of her, if one had to die.

Amazing! Briarlight is awesome, I hope she becomes Jayfeather's apprentice! She seems to like working for him, and there's no one else that I can think of. Again, this is an AMAZING drawing!!!

But how could she possibly get to the moon pool?
She can drag herself up and down those slopes,and Jayfeather probaly cant carry her.
