Fireheart is concerned for Bluestar by OMG-Chibi Fireheart is concerned for Bluestar by OMG-Chibi
So, a few months ago, somebody on You Tube contacted me asking if my original series "Conquering Tide" was based on or inspired by Erin Hunter's Warriors series.
I created the plot for Conquering Tide around 3 years ago, and I'd never heard of these "Warrior" books.

So, as a research project, I thought I'd see what the fuss was about. I finally bought the box set of the first 6 books about a month ago, and I've almost finished "The Darkest Hour".
All I can say is, what a great series! Thoroughly engaging! I can see similarities between my series, even though of course I'd never heard of them at the time.

So, inspired by "A Dangerous Path" where Bluestar has lost her way, and has lost faith in her clan members and even Starclan itself. Of course, Fireheart is always concerned for his noble leader. So this a pen and watercolour drawing depicting my interpretation of the characters.

I love your style! I was wondering if I could please have permission to use this image in a youtube project? I'm a professional pianist/composer and I write music to accompany book series (I'm mostly known for Wings of Fire - I'm Music Mommy on youtube). I'm starting the Warriors series and am building a fanart portfolio to accompany my music, and I would love to use this piece! I always fully credit and link back to the artist's DA page. I'll wait to hear from you - thanks! :) www.gretchenratke.com

Wow! I never knew you were reading Warriors! Thats so great that you were introduced to the books!!! You really need to get the other series in the saga! Very great series; Warriors. And so many people judge it just because its about cats, but they dont even know what its about. My family calls it the "cat fight book. rawr." :stare: lol....

OMG Warrior Cats are the best series I have ever read. Sadly I read the last book of the ENTIRE Series, so there are no more adventures. But I am looking forward to reading the newest special addition book, Yellowfang's Secrect. Yellowfang is my ultimate favorite cat. I do have another one, but I won't spoil him for you.

(Dang you replied fast...!) But anyways. I KNOW RIGHT! MY warrior cat, Rainbowpelt, is mostly based off of Yellowfang. Despite a few things.

I love it and I'm glad you're reading Warriors! The plot gets a whole lot more complicated as the series goes on, especially when you figure out who is related to who, though it doesn't always tell you in the book.

Awesome! That's totally how I imagine Bluestar and Fireheart.
Hmm... I guess I never really thought about it but I guess I see how some people might think CT had been a little Warriors inspired. First sub-series is the best in my opinion btw Just saying. ^^;
