She Was Always Like A Feather...

This is a song for a girl called Sophie
used to write her name on my arm.
Time has made us strangers
and I don't know her anymore.

But I really hope she's made it
that someone took her home.
She was lost but wasn't missing
she would always walk alone.

She was always like a feather, in the air
I never knew if she was flying or falling
she was always like a feather, in my life.

I hope she flies...

- "Song For Sophie" by Aura Dione


Weeeh, hey guys I'm back from vacation! It was awesome... I finally found enough time to finnish "The fourth apprentice" and start with "Fading echos" whilst laying on a towel at the beach and getting roasted by the sun xD

To the picture: This is a scene from the first book (Midnight) of the second arc, right when Squirrelpaw and Brambleclaw leave to accompany the journey-cats and Leafpaw says goodbye to her sister. I really liked that scene, because it emphasised how much the sisters love eachother... but it also shows that Leafpaw is less independant than her sister Squirrelpaw and doesn't really want to be seperated from her, though she knows she can't do anything against it.
I wanted to do some more Squirrelflight-, as well as Leafpool-fanart for quite a long time now, but never found good/strong scenes. After all they were very close when they were younger and I felt really sorry for both of them, but especially for Leafpool when they grew more and more apart. I wanted to depict that aspect of their relationship and maybe -as soon as I've read more about them- add a Dovewing/Ivypool-picture in comparison to the two of them... Since the sisters all have to face the same problem: Time can change and seperate people, even if they still care for eachother. And that's why I chose this song to go with the scene. It's a little old, but still... I like it.^^

I hope you like the picture... it was a quick-work again xD
Next upload will be either a new comic page... or some more Khan-fanart. I didn't decide which one to start first, yet. :3

Hey! I just love your art style, and I really enjoy this piece! That's why, with your permission of course, some friends and I were wondering if we would borrow it for a little.
Now before you start thinking I'm trying to steal it, sell it as my own or do totally something illegal with it, let me explain.
Some friends and I have a community on Google Plus (yes, that dead place where it's sad if anyone still has an account there) that we are working on and trying to build. We don't have any art for the community banner yet, and we were wondering if we might be allowed to use this piece right here. It wouldn't be permanent of course, and we're hoping it won't have to stay for too long, just until we find the time to actually make some art ourselves. Because we don't support art theft, we are asking you if you would let us. If you don't want us to, we completely understand. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I feel bad for everyone that does this because they don't get kissed or asked out.

Maybe by their parents but..
