I tried, Brightpaw. by Finchwing I tried, Brightpaw. by Finchwing
"I tried, Brightpaw.
I really tried."


Some warriors fan art, because I don't think I have done any since that Night Whispers picture xD

In case you hadn't noticed, this is Swiftpaw and Brightpaw who were attacked by the dogs in 'A Dangerous Path'. Brightpaw lived, despite her horrific injuries, but Swiftpaw however died. This is him kind of drifting away to StarClan, saying his last goodbyes to his love (well I think they were lovers anyway >3 ) and letting her know that he tried his best, but his best wasn't good enough.

BOOHOO.

I didn't really think of that scene much at the time of reading it, but thinking back, it was really tragic! D8 all they wanted to do was to become warriors.

Okay enough about that xD This took quite a while... I spent about an hour yesterday doing just the sketches and the lineart (Brightpaw's pose was hard to do) and today I did everything else! The shading was especially fun >3

Thanks to ~NoreyDragon for the idea! I had wanted to do a picture starring Swiftpaw for a while, but didn't know what to do. Then Nors did a quick sketch for me and I went on from there :3 Thank you!

Hope you like this as much as I do : D

I really liked the way you captured the moment were Swiftpaw ebbs away into Starclan to leave Brightpaw alone with the scars but I love that bond it almost look like he's licking her cheeck! How do you do it were do you speedpaint? Most importantly, HOW ARE YOU SO AWSOME! YOUR LIKE MY BEST ART RO-MODEL WITH GAMACHISORA! :)

Oh my goodness, this is so emotional!
I love this piece of artwork, I wish I could draw warrior scenes, but for some reason I can't.
Just the emotion you captured in this piece is so perfect...

Art is an amazing thing. While there had been many Swiftbright pictures, yours is unique, in many ways. Your portrayal of his fading into StarClan is something I have not seen before, as it appears he is turning from stone to ash and dust. This piece is an inspiration, something using a common idea but a very different way of visualizing it. And the fact it is such a widely-used idea made in such a powerful way makes it that much more amazing.
