Fear Not This Night by Heylenne Fear Not This Night by Heylenne
"...you'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 grooveshark.com#!/s/Fear+Not+T…

You can check the lineart on my tumblr if you want.
heylenne.tumblr.com/ 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?

I am very sorry :(

I have lost 3 of my beloved cats already :( and it still makes me sad when I think about it.
Two of them have been many years with me since I was a Baby, and the other one for many years also.
I can't live without cats, so now I have a cat again, he is lovely , he's White and has a Black heart, on his Body this is very cute and beautiful I think<3
I hope i'll be able to share many years with him.
Sorry for your loss, I really understand your pain, but your Tribute is truly gorgeous, you did such wonderful work :heart:

its a really beautiful pic  ( and i really mean it, couse usually im really critical about pics) -  not just i like the tones, the composition etc. but how it shows true emotions!
 also i feel you much about your cat - i didnt think about it lately,but as i read your story.. mine died at this summer (sadly too suddenly and on a.. tragic way) and as i feel now it appears im still not completely over it... she was with us for 6 year and with time we became really close.  maybe i should tribute her on a similar way as you did with yours.
 anyway, i follow your tumblr for quite long time, luv your work!:) keep up;)

You're welcome. And thank you for your kind words. I find it really quite wonderful that you took your many feelings over the loss of your dear friend and made something so beautiful with it. I have no doubt your son felt, and still feels, the same love for him that you poured into this artwork. That kind of feeling is a gift to the world and I feel lucky to have witnessed it. Making art from such deep feelings is a wondrous thing.

I'm so sorry for your loss, I've been through the same thing too many times...

I'm sure he had a wonderful life with you, and couldn't have wished for a better one. 

This picture has moved me to the point of tears, it makes me remember too clearly the time I said goodbye to my cat Princess. When I went off to college she started doing poorly. Her health slowly declined as she waited for me to come back. One weekend I came home to her, and I knew it was time to say goodbye. The next morning she passed away. But she had waited for me to be home one more time before she did. She was 17 and I'll never forget her.

Wow, this is a very touching story. y.y You're lucky to have shared 17 years with her.  I mean, I'm guessing she was with you since she was a baby, I don't know. I wish I could have shared that long time with mine.
I'm very sorry for your loss too.
Thank you for your words and for sharing your memories with me. :heart:

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.

this is a beautiful art piece, i must say i actually fell in love with it. i don't know what to say about the story that goes with it, other than; "it's sad" and "i find it beautiful that you make this tribute for your son. i hope you both can find happiness, you still living carrying on your love for him, and him watching over his wonderful mother."

Breathtaking.
It feels very, very gentle, soothing... and warm. Not hot-warm though, more like... like being wrapped up in a comfy blanket on a cold day; that kind of warmth.
