2 outta 3. Greystripe is done!
And yes I know it's GrAystripe with an 'A' but I'M AMERICAN IT'S A NATURAL HABIT TO TYPE IT WITH AN 'E' SHHHHH.
His eyebrow game is strong. lol I ended up having him look a little more toony in the face here, so it works!
So yeah in terms of design he’s a a B I G B O Y. He’s said to eat a lot, and that can mean he’d be round and pudgy in the belly. I also didn’t want to make him just solid grey with a darker stripe down his back, I felt it was too plain and boring! So I went and made him tricolored by giving him a lighter underbelly, to really break up that grey and make him look… better, more appealing to my eye like this tbh.
Forgot the inner ear tufts but fuck it those are annoying to draw.
I don’t have toooo many qualms with him as a character really, only within parts of the first arc. The only few issues I had with him was during the whole Silverstream thing in Fire and Ice. That relationship made him act rather annoying and bratty towards Fireheart, who was only looking out for him (Besides he’s made a lot of trouble seeing her afterall), plus it made him pretty much IGNORE his apprentice. Oh yeah and there’s that whole “I can’t abandon my kits thing” and going with them to Riverclan and simultaneously DITCHED HIS BEST FRIEND WTFFFFF. Ya can’t abandon your kits yet at the same time you decide to abandon both your home clan and best bud wAT? (Thus all that bullshit really made me hate Grey/Silver as a couple, so much bullshit went down just for them being together it was so frustrating to read like GAWSH)
But after that whole mess in Forest of Secrets I started tolerating him again, even seeing him briefly in Riverclan I was pretty much going inside “COME BACK DAMNNIT PLZ ;.;”
Other than that, I found him a really good ‘comic relief’ character, and I really loved his bromance moments with Fireheart. (I maaaaaay or may not ship them a little now too, especially thanks to that short fanfic one of the main Erin’s wrote 2 years ago. hehe)
So I’d say I’m neutral to him. He’s had his good and bad moments. But all around fun to draw, I had fun drawing the round boyo. I’ll make it a plan to draw some bromance with him later. >w>
