Snowy Brambles by Jayie-The-Hufflepuff Snowy Brambles by Jayie-The-Hufflepuff
This is a pairing I probably never would have come up with myself. However, :iconcushfuddled:'s excellent comic, Twin Shadows, introduced me to the concept of Snowkit (Speckletail's son that died young in canon) and Brambleclaw as a couple. After seeing some of their interactions in the side comics, and seeing how sweetly Brambleclaw looks at him in the newest page that was released, I was greatly inspired to make some Bramble/Snow shipping fanart. :D I used my own designs for the characters as they're easier for me to draw, and I wanted to see what my versions of Brambleclaw and adult!Snowkit would look like together. ^^

I decided to play around with the poses on this one and try something a little different. I'm really happy with how it turned out. :D It took some tweaking to get Brambleclaw's scrunched-up eye with Snow licking his cheek to get right, but I think it looks alright now. I'm really happy with his expression, and Snow's. I wanted to show them lying together with Snow grooming an amused/protesting Bramble, with their tails twined with Bramble's tail curled around Snow, and Snow draping his paws over Bramble's leg.

I also wanted to show the size difference between them - Snow is a mostly average tom, on the largish side with a somewhat muscular build, but Bramble is friggin' huge and made of pure muscle. :P I also tried a different brush for the shading, I'm not totally sure how I like it, but I felt like it would keep the fur from looking too flat and skin-like.

Honestly, I'm really happy with how this turned out. :D These two really do seem to be so sweet together, the little hints we've seen at a future relationship anyway in Twin Shadows, and I can imagine them making a very cute couple in the future. :D We never saw much of a personality from Snowkit since he died so young in the books, but I imagined him here as a bit mischievous and confident in flustering his adoring and somewhat dorky mate Bramble. ^^ But I'm just interested to see how things progress in Twin Shadows, with this subplot, and with the story at large. :D

He is still deaf, but without the hawk to grab him, he’s still alive and doing well. ^^
