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." lol....
