Russetfur's Death: DIGITALLY REMASTERED FOR BLURAY by RussianBlues Russetfur's Death: DIGITALLY REMASTERED FOR BLURAY by RussianBlues
Here's the original version. 

This was requested by The-Rainy-Wolf in my poll :meow: I thought it was an awesome idea, I don't see much Russetfur art out there! 

Holy crap this was a pain though :XD: I draw the very rough sketch in photoshop, printed it out at low opacity, finished the sketch/details in pencil, then scanned it back in and did the lineart in photoshop again. I just could not draw good lines or sketches :nuu: But it turned out all right in the end! :dummy:

Lionblaze looks angreh :stare:

This piece is just magical! The emotion you've captured here is gorgeous and so well-done. The fury of both cats is captured amazingly, shown from their bodily movements, facial expressions, and just the glint in their eyes. Each eye just seems to contain a fire. So much emotion is shown! Russetfur looks simply furious to see the angry Lionblaze pulling her off from Firestar. The blur in the picture gives the piece a wonderful sense of motion and focuses the drawing on the main attraction rather than the cats fighting in the background. The shading here is so well done as well as the blood upon the cats. The cuts look authentic, blood bubbling outward rather than streaming from all over, showing the freshness of the injuries. I love the blood dribbling from the chin of Russetfur and flying off, showing her as moving as well. The textures and colors are gorgeous and I just enjoy this so much. The highlights upon the blood and eyes are amazing as well. I don't even want to move on to the background, because you would have to spend quite a while reading over this.

Overall, this is one of the most gorgeous pieces I've ever seen done! I've always adored Russetfur, and it just feels amazing to see your designs and art! I wanted to thank you so much for doing this, it's extremely well-done. Keep on drawing<3

I saw this picture and I was like :O
The first thing I noticed was how well you did the blood. It looks very realistic. The expressions are excellent as well, along with the lighting. The cats fighting in the background looks very nice :D The teeth/jaws are amazing and the eyes are so gorgeous I can't describe it. Russetfur does look a little like a male, though. I always used eyelashes to make it look female, or you could make her slimmer. :3 The noses look great, like they're wet. The blur on the background and Lionblaze's paw make it look magnificent. Overall this is a really beautiful piece and I must add this to my favorites!

Meh, Russetfur was a bitch anyways xD

I didn't like her, and for some reason, she was all ways on border patrols xD

Blackstar wanted to keep her away from camp as long as posiable :D lol

Russetfur was SO OLD! She was  not much older than Yellowfang in the first book, who was an elder, and here she's probably at least
twice as old.

Lionblaze did, I can't remember what book it was in. :/

Russetfur only wanted Daisy, she believed in that green light.

Oh...nice. Many people blame Lionblaze for this scene, but this is where I blame Ivypaw, her lie caused two deaths.

But you know, Russetfur reminds me of Pinestar almost.

Yeah, Lionblaze just wanted to help Firestar. It's not like he really wanted to kill her.

Besides, Russetfur was actually very old by this time, but of course she would not step down, stubborn old thing. In a ways, Lionblaze gave her a great gift...a true warrior's death. She did not die from disease or old age, but got to die in the line of duty...what more could she had wanted?

To be fair, he didn't mean to. She was hurting Firestar so he pulled her off, and I guess he was too strong or something and accidentally killed her.

I just drew him like this because I'm sure he was angry she was hurting his leader :o

WOOOOOOHH!!! Go Russetfur! She's one of the best Shadowclan characters- it's amazing she lived from Yellowfang's time all the way to the Lake. I wonder how many people know Russetfur started out as a rouge- and she ended up this amazing Shadowclan cat.

GREAT WOOOOOORRKKKKKK!!!
