Also, I noticed you haven't drawn requests lately, curious if you're still taking them?
(oh jeez I made the thread 5 pages)
For now no. Requests are pretty much closed rn. I need to edit the list to show that (And either work on those I've taken or remove them). xwx Rn I'm focusing on my own things. But I'll let folks know when I'm open again.

Art updaaaaaaate because I haven't done one in so long. Idk how I could forget this thread existed when it's right there in my fricking signature. xwx Might end up being a long post but thankfully it's a new page so scrolling shouldn't be TOO big a hassle. Once I post more stuff I'll put all these in spoilers later.
Figure I start off with some OTP art as that's the first one I see that was posted after the sketch of Bunny. Have some FireSand lovin's as ever..
Because I love good morning kisses and he DEFINITELY would be one to wake up every morning to give his wife a lick good morning sorry but it's canon now. <3
Next one is an OC sketch I did in the past of my WCsona Brindlefern. I wanted to do a sort of 'portrait' like picture but it ended up taking a lot out of me so it'll be a while before I decide if I wanna work on it further.
Fun Fact: The flowers are all Gardenias, which their symbolical meaning is “secret love”! Whether that means in a secret admirer sense or forbidden lovers I’ll never know, but I’m using them regardless lol May or may not have a link to Bunny if I decide to add him to Brindlefern's past, but I'll have to adjust my reason for having the character a bit first because my reasons for making Bunny to be his possible partner in the first place is such a bad take and makes me so uncomfy to where it makes my stomach flip. *Coughs*
OC redraw next. Just like with Rosedapple I did some remakes of character profiles. Recently I redid Stormfalls'.
Because I figured I replace his old traced-from-ref profile with a newer one now that I’m more comfortable in working with my feline art from scratch.
More or less is the same. I did try my hand at giving him a somewhat nastier eye scar, not to Cherrypatch’s degree but it actually looks like he got properly clawed in a fight to where it’s permanently squinted like hers and also reddened within the corners. I may of may not have overdid it but ah well. Not that Brambleface minds, Heh.
I will be doing profile remakes for some of the other cats too, namely Rainfrost, and maybe Mothflower too.
Last one for now, this one is rather sad however. Relating to something in Brambleface's history. She had a third kit along with the two B's named Poppykit, who died barely a day after birth due to being born weak. She sometimes still visits her daughters' grave...

Not ded yet mofos. :U Don't be alarmed by the new name and icon, it's still me Brindlefern.
Here’s my government issued Warrior name, Mothberry, with an actual look to boot! I don’t think I’ll make her my actual WCsona but she can be a secondary sona to Brindlefern.
She’s a medium-haired, ticked tabby molly, I decided to go with lilac for her color because I really like lilac cats and find them rarely touched upon. Her appearance is a lot like mine in some aspects. She’s really leggy, thin-bodied (Yes she’s thin, don’t let the belly fur fool you), same dark dark brown eyes, very fast looking runner. I always say if I was to be a cat in the canon clans I would be a Windclan MC who later goes rogue for a while after being unable to stand Onestar's bad leadership (She runs away in T&S time as that's when the threat of Darktail comes to the Lake territories and upon seeing her leader going insane she sneaks out of there in the middle of the night). She basically does that and comes back when Harestar's ruling the clan. Moth's an apprentice of Kestrelflight.
Lotsa other useless info I contained in a spoiler:
- Got her prefix from her distinct eye marking. - Seems bouncy and super approachable and extroverted in the ref but is really just an introvert. -- (Definitely bouncy when nobody’s looking however.) - Daydreams a lot and loves to be lazy on slow days. - Low-Key hates gatherings because TOO MANY CATS - She likes marking the inner Medicine Den with (Non-toxic) berry juices, similar to two-legs painting their nests. And she decorates the den with flowers whenever she can. She’d do the other dens some time later on as well. -- Except the leader’s den when Onestar was in charge because screw Onestar he doesn’t deserve nice flowers decorating his nest. :P --- Now that Harestar is in charge she’s trying to make it a habit of decorating his den in her routine now…. only moreso than others. - Can name herbs off the back of her paw. Talk to her about herbs and she suddenly does not know when to shut up because that’s her special interest (But really talk to her about herbs she enjoys it) - She’s arachnophobic as hell. Screw spiders. - Mothberry has oriental in her breed, hence her big ears. - Probably got loner/rogue blood in her because where the ever hell are her parents. (Decided to go through with making her have parents who were formally loners who joined the clan at some point. Her mother was emotionally abusive and tried to pressure her to be a Warrior instead an MC, to the point of even trying to scare her as a kit, but her dad was supportive of her wanting to be an healer from kithood. This leads to things being rather messy with their conflicting ideals. The mother drove the father away for good after hearing he was the influence that actually allowed her to be a healer, and later on she got pissed and left soon after Mothberry went "F you I wanted to be an MC and I'm not letting YOU control me.", so Moth's pretty much without parents now and was left to defend for herself without parental support. She doesn't miss her mother at all anymore, but wishes her supportive dad was still there from time to time.) - The whole giving giving her a bad mother but supportive father is a sorta catharsis on my part. >.> -- On the note of manipulative messed up parenting on one end, her song is "Loved" by FEiN. - She smells of lavender because she’s always rolling that shit. - She’s a freaking disaster bi and radiates dumbass bisexual energy.(Wait why am I slashing this it’s true) - Prefers and loves night time as she finds the night and the moon pretty. -- Moon bi ahoy toot toot - Hates the cold but also the heat, what even is her temperature tolerance. - Mothberry has Asperger’s and Asthma. The former doesn’t affect her health in any way, it’s just a reason why she does certain things like ramble about stuff she loves, the latter does however, as it causes flare ups when she overexerts herself, or is stressed. -- She’s also insomniac and is prone to waking up in the middle of the night. Because of this, she tends to straight up eat a poppyseed or two to help her sleep through the evening hours. That stuff’s like melatonin for her. (She’s the blame for them being low in stock a lot of times) - I wouldn’t say she has full-on anxiety but she’s definitely a worrier. (Hence why I said she’s a disaster) - Is allergic to grass pollen; New-Leaf season is the worst. Expect a lot of sneezing. - Mothberry has a crush on Harespring/star and had one since they were ‘paws. She still did even during the time she ran away, and still does after her return, only more so. -- On a related note she’s a hopeless romantic, but has no intention on acting on her feelings as she’d rather follow the damn rules unlike SOME Medicine Cats. - She loves kits but never wants to actually give birth to any herself as she fears getting pregnant. - She would be born around PoT’s time and a Med. Cat apprentice in OoTS-AVoS’s time if we were to follow the current timeline, as it’s when Kestrelflight took to being main MC (And ffs he NEEDS AN APPRENTICE ALREADY DAMNNIT) - She’s rather impulsive in her choices, so when she wanted to leave the clan, she never thought to announce it to her clan and rightfully step down. Mothberry figured her vanishing was enough of an indicator that she wanted no part of the clan for a while anyways. (Gal’s not very clever in thinking things through before doing them) - Is usually a sweetheart but isn’t a complete pushover. Don’t talk bad about her because she WILL at most bitch-slap you.

Some generator cats I made a while back that I forgot to post! Moreso as practice for more variety in terms of body/face type. I've been feeling like my art suffers from same-face-syndrome so these are more like an exercise. THIS was the generator used! Which gets around quite a lot. I don’t think I’ll be making the cats I draw from them into set characters, but who knows, maybe one or two will stick in the future. ;DD
Had a little fun with the body and face shape of this one. I really like this gal, I bet she gets some weird looks from the rest of her clan with her like of frogs (Because no doubt it means eating them lol) Tried to lessen the white on her, as I have a habit of giving torties all completely white underbellies/muzzles/paws/too much white spotting and making them calicos doing so. ^^;
As soon as I got the combination in the generator I kinda fell in love with the guy. I can imagine he’s a really dedicated deputy, usually gets along with others, however at the same time he works himself off so much he hardly gets any sleep at the end of the day.
And because this is me we’re talking about here, he’s an XXY male like Rosedapple… which may also be a contributor as to why he’s rather sickly since it's likely for an intersex male calico in the more realistic sense (Although I imagine both are a factor, sleep depravity can mess ya up after a while, imagine adding that to an already sickly individual as is) compared to Rose who is healthier. So as a result he’s usually seen in the Medicine Den from time to time more than any other cat, yet he’s still determined to keep kicking in his role.
Someone tell this guy to give himself a frickin’ break like seriously.
I might do more Generator cats in the future, they're fun to put into visual art form. I also recommend flannelphobic's Warrior Cat Generator to use as well, which can be even MORE descriptive in its results (Some more pelts like torbies, more pelt colors and eye colors. If you generate an apprentice, it can give you their full Warrior name, and it can even give you an exact age for the generated cat, and even has male/female/genderless options). You can check it out HERE.
I got more to post but I'll space it out a little. Will be back here in a short bit.
While I was working on rendering this, I had decided since the clean sketch to make it into a remake of the very first pic I’ve ever drawn of these two back when I was very new to the fandom. Both are based on Firestar and Sandstorm reuniting in Starclan after many moons of separation, but this version is the newer version with better anatomy, colors are nicer, and the character interaction is much much closer and loving and intimate here than the old version (Loving them overlapping limbs and tails, line-arting those were a pain in the ass. haha). The first and year old version is at my OP post of the thread. (And oh god it’s so sucky I hate it now. x.x) I’m honestly super proud of how this came out. Granted I still can’t stop abusing filters, which in the end made Sandstorm’s stripes impossible to see in the finished product, but gawd I love all the pink and purple and bright and it’s so romantic and I LOVE IT and I love them so damn much god danggit. They’re such a great pair and a comfort couple and deserve all the ship art! <3
(I’ve been listening to Moments Like This by The Afters and I swear it’s my go-to song when drawing FireSand ship art. >w>)
A pic I did yesterday of Mothberry with her leader and crush Harestar taking a little walk! A good warm up to combat the ol’ art block. Not exactly intended to be a ship pic given Mothberry’s self-control but if ya wanna interpret it like that go on ahead I won’t mind one lil’ bit. :P
Went for a sort of literal “Rabbit cat” look on Harestar, floofy lil’ bob tail, big ears, long Windclan legs built for striding, it works perfectly for his name, I’m gonna like drawing him solo later. Also why did I give him prettyboy energy a.k.a effeminate eyelashes oh no I’m gonna love that rabbit cat even more now oh no oh n-.
I like to headcanon that they had a bit of a thing that lasted for a while until Talltail left Windclan, and then they restarted their relationship in a healthy way once he came back. A sort of “on-off” relationship of something in that regard, and Barkface was ofc interested in Talltail/star talking about Jake during his return too. So there’s some polycat implications. Cuz even though I don’t really ship TallJake as much as I used to anymore (I have my reasons) I’m not like, gonna be stingy about its existence and crap on it. So Barkface def. knows about Talltail/star’s kittypelt boyfriend and lets him ramble on about him when given the chance.
And another rarepair of mine, one that's currently tied with LittleCinder as my top favorite... MINNOWMOUSE! <333
Based off the end bit of my most recent Tumblr post about them, where I get canon divergent at the end and imagine that some time after the entire Dark Forest training dealio/battle, they both decide mutually to elope from the clans and succeed in doing so, leaving everything behind that made it hard to be together, the borders, rules, and everything, just so that they can finally be together openly. Basically doing what LeafCrow in canon did but succeeding doing it. They soon find a place to settle, and even start a family of their own.
You can really tell just from reading the Tumblr post and the fact that I was immediately inspired to make art with them that I just… LOVE these two so much. I cannot shut up about them. They’re officially tied with LittleCinder as my favorite forbidden cross-clan rarepair. Only the contrast to LittleCinder is, with how I’m doing MinnowMouse it’s longer lasting, and doesn’t involve Medicine Cats this time, but a very happy ending nonetheless.
Later on I miiiight design some hypokits for these two. Sooooo stay tuned for that when I do. <3
I'll post two more rarepairs that I've done here later!
Post by Brindlefern on May 1, 2019 13:53:49 GMT -5
Apologies for the lack of updates! Decided to throw this in now before this hits the month long mark. I do have some stuff done that I haven't posted yet!
First up is my most recent FireSand art, because you know how I am. :D Firestar's got some pretty flowers for his very pretty wife. This was also my first pic drawn in my newer version of Sai! (Sai 2 that is)
Second one is another Rarepair of mine, only this one is a canon couple. RowanTawny! I was gonna show this one earlier but the picture linking messed up on me so I had to delete until I posted it to tumblr. As a result, this one's an older artwork, but I still love it.
Design-wise I went with a Somali-esque look for Rowanstar, nothing to outstanding for him. And not too long ago, I made a galaxy-brain idea of mostly-ginger Tawnypelt. I did it here, and oh MY GOD I love it so much this is officially my visualization of her, shove off dilute calico Tawnypelt this is my look for her now. Big buff Maine-Coon looking wife and her smaller less fluffy husband who loves her and her fluff. <3
Lastly, a quickly done BrindleBunny piece, prepare for mood whiplash.
To explain what’s going on here in context would be a spoiler for their relationship later in for Brindlefern's story when/if I get to that part. But with what I can say it’s a pretty emotional moment for the both of them.
I haven’t drawn Brindlefern in a long time and while I have been wanting to draw something with him and his old BF for the first time, I didn’t exactly expect my first idea to be a sad toned one.
Hope you enjoy the arts! TY for all the kind feedback btw, I know I seem distant on replying to the nice comments, but I assure you I read them all and they make my day, it'd just get a taaad repetitive saying "Thank you" over and over again, if that makes any sense. :'D

To also add for this thread's update. I'll be going quiet here again just for a while, I've planned to do some stuff for Pride Month in the form of headshots of cats I HC as LGBT in any way! As while I'm not part of the community for personal reasons, I never got to participate in the event not last year or the years before it for reasons (Too busy/had my attention elsewhere/etc.). So that will take up a lot of my attention in WC art for the time being, and I will indeed bring in an influx of such stuff by the time the month rolls around and maybe even during, since the Headshots are getting done pretty fast, and I have maybe 50+ waiting to be done sooooo that's a lot! xwx'
And before anyone asks no I will not be taking requests for any either, I'll just do the ones I personally envision for the time being. :P
