Fear Not This Night by Heylenne Fear Not This Night by Heylenne
"'ll not go astray."

Resposting my picture since last time there was this girl trying to take down my work.

This is a veeeery important picture to me. I started it some days after my son (the cat in orange suit on the picture) died and I only managed to finish it one week ago. I didn't want to do it under pressure, so I took my time.
So this is a tribute to my beloved son, who was not just a cat... he was unique, magical, my.. son. One of the most special creatures I've met in this life.

So now he will always have another special place: he is officially a new character on this project of mine, companion of the blond elf you mayy have seen already on my gallery. She is part of the lightest side of all the story, so I want him to stay there, with her.

This is a tribute to his death.
Be respectful, please.

And thank you for looking. :rose:

What is it, dear? by Heylenne

The title comes from the song "Fear Not This Night", by Asja Kadric, Guild Wars 2 soundtrack. It's a lovely song I've heard over and over when I drew this. you can heard it here if you wish!/s/Fear+Not+T…

You can check the lineart on my tumblr if you want. Ask me there if you'd like to see it bigger.

And please, don't use my work for anything without asking me first, ok?

Wow, that is a really sweet story. This picture actually really got to me before I had even read the description.  It reminded me of the time I spent with my cat of 14 years, who died almost a year ago now. She meant the world to me and was truly a special being. The day she died I laid in the grass with her the entire day.  Lying there with her brought me back to a time when she was just a kitten and I was just a kid.  I'm so thankful for that random warm day (it was right before spring).  She was happiest in nature.  She was fierce and wild, but also had the most nurturing spirit I've ever encountered.  She was the tiniest little thing, but full of so much strength and power.  I got to spend the last day of her life in my backyard with her soaking up the sun and watching the breeze on her fur.  I had carried her out there and I carried her back in, where I stroked her head and said goodnight to her for the last time. I know that was how she'd have wanted to spend her last day on earth. I still think about her randomly all the time. I had a dream about her this morning, running to me like she always did from somewhere far away. The title of this fits so perfectly. I love her.
