EDIT: This is Squirrelflight's second old image.

Decided to give Squirrelflight an entirely new bio, since her old one was pretty wonky, and her colors were way too light and yellow-ish to be a dark ginger tabby with a flame-colored pelt. I darkened and reddened her up, as well as actually making her paw white.

I'm really, really happy with how she turned out. I took a lot of the design from the cover of Dawn, as usual, but her colors and fluffiness finally fit the way the books describe her, and how I picture her. And now she's finally darker in color than her father. :P

I'm gonna try and redo a couple of old bios - namely, Jayfeather, Leafpool, and maybe Poppyfrost (I never was happy with the colors on that one), and maybe Rowanstar.

I sort of want to use her tail as a feather duster, it it be good for collecting all the debris. XD

Haha, it would work perfectly as a feather duster. XD It's so floofy!

Also, I replied to what you sent me.

Now you see why me suggested a scene with the kits playing? Who wouldn't want to try killing that tail (pretty good at keeping the nursery clean too lol). But me like these colors and they make her ginger, but yet not like the others.

Haha, that scene sounds adorable. XD Her tail would make the best toy.

Thanks. :D I've always imagined her with a less-saturated pelt, and very dark, very saturated, red stripes. ^^

And a good pillow/blanket :nod:...yep those kits have it good.

At least she doesn't look like a Firestar clone (which is why me not happy with Sparkpaw...the female one. No creativity around her design at all). Even if she was mentioned as one (a lion king reference actually).

Definitely. :D

I have to admit, I'm a sucker sometimes for cats looking like their parents (I try not to overuse it, and I love new designs, but you'll notice I've made two toms of Tigerstar's bloodline dark brown tabbies. :P) I was glad we got a Firestar lookalike as well as Tigerstar lookalikes, to add something new.

I am a person who likes blending traits, but sometimes having a close resemblance can happen. But either Sparkpaw nor Alderpaw sound unique, both are orange cats (which is odd because Bramblestar's brown fur should had been inherited). 

For my Bramble x Squirrel kit, I decided to settle for a slightly dark light brown tabby who has Firestar's leaf-green eyes. She isn't a normal brown tabby or dark brown, but her light-brown fur is maybe a few shades darker than say Leafpool or Birchfall. I chose to name her Maplekit since it sounds cute (and fits with Stormkit who is black with heather-blue eyes).

Alderpaw is ginger like his mother, but dark like both parents, and he got Bramblestar's amber eyes. I really love his design, actually, we don't usually see ginger cats with amber eyes. ^^

Cool. :)
