Battle In The Lake by RiverSpirit456 Battle In The Lake by RiverSpirit456
This is a commission from IceShade49! :iconiceshade49:

Characters: Icepaw (white she-cat, red eyes), and Lilydart (white she-cat, green eyes)

Story:

Story: Icepaw is part of a prophecy to stop a group of cats who seceded from the clans to form a group called Fireclan. The cats of Fireclan believe that fire has been a symbol of hope for too long and they want to make the clans see that fire is a cleansing force. Their ultimate plan is to start a horrible fire across the clans to cleanse the cats who are "evil" in their eyes and only save the ones that are innocent.
    
During this scene, a Fireclan cat, Lilydart, is fighting Icepaw(shade) after she tried to recruit her to Fireclan. Icepaw refused, saying that she would never betray Thunderclan. Lilydart then attempted to force Icepaw to join by holding her down in the lake. Icepaw kicked her off and they are fighting in the water. 

Hope you like it! :)

I LOVE how there's a sort of blur surrounding the picture and how it's so focused on the battle.

I believe River accepts her accepted money commissions through paypal, most artists do. c:

I like atmosphere of that picture, and how peacefully sunset colors make contrast with the dynamic fight scene. Usually dramatic, epic battles take place in the thunderstorms and something like that, but it's too cliche ;)
One thing you could improve here is the water at the bottom - at first I thought it's snow and if not your description and these little drops on the cats, I would be wrong all the time. You should make it more "splashy", because now it looks rather foggy, and maybe not blurring it? But the blur on cats is good, it gives the impression of dynamic movement and help to focus on their faces. And these little drops on their whiskers, I adore it! :heart:

Aww that's a shame but I bet it's really good ^^

Maybe you could at some point take pictures of all the pages and post them somewhere... I'm not sure if that would work but it's just an idea :)
