Art Contests

Hi! Thank you guys so much for helping me win the last contest. It means a lot.

The theme of this contest is quite simple. Take a character you like (or don't) and change their role in the story. For example, what if Scar was never power hungry? What would he have been like if he was made to be a good guy? Would he have helped Simba, or would the hyenas have manipulated him into doing their bidding anyway? What if Mufasa wasn't such a kind father? What kind of a villain would Kiara or Kion make? The ideas are endless.

I hope something like this wasn't done before. My creativity is rather low. Anyway, make sure to have fun! ^_^

Thank you so much for making me the winner of the last contest. First time ever winning one of these^^

For a long time now, I've been saying that sketches need love too so for this contest, submit your best sketches or black and white works.

Honestly, it was a fluke, I just wanted to put in SOMETHING and since I am a mainly traditional artist xD but thank you all so much!!

For this contest, I wanna tackle some things our fandom LOVES to theorize about: WHO IS NALA'S DAD??

Ah, but not JUST Nala's dad! ALL those missing family members we've never seen or met before! You know there are a ton! Who the heck is Kovu's dad? Where are Fuli's parents, and what do they look like? What about Zuri and Tiifu's parents? Could they be sisters, cousins, or not related at all? Or even Pumbaa's family?? Zazu's dad, Beshte's mom, Jasiri's parents, maybe even Shenzi's! Maybe her, Banzai and Ed were triplets! The possibilities are endless!

Show me what you think Nala's dad might look like, how his personality may be. Show me who you think Kovu's dad might be (I've always liked the Chumvi idea eheh but you don't have to x3), or any of the characters listed above! Or anyone I'm forgetting, I know I'm leaving a bunch out! Be creative, let's fill in those missing links! ;) <3

Thank you all so much for the votes! ;w; <3

From pencil and paper, paint and canvas, to sculptures, plushies, or other mixed media, we're going to focus on traditional art!

If just drawing on paper seems too easy, try branching out to a different media, or try approaching it from a different angle :3 There's more that can be done with paper than just drawing on it. Origami, paper dolls, paper cutting, paper mache...the list goes on! Be creative :D

Thank you guys so much for voting for my drawing, it made my day! ^^

For the next contest I thought it'd be cool to see how characters from TLK would look in a different drawing style other than Disney. For example, how would they look like if they existed in the world of The Simpsons?... Or maybe in japanese anime style?... How about Fairly Odd Parents style? Or something like Rick and Morty?
There's so many different cartoon styles out there you can try, so the choice is yours!

Thank you guys for the votes - it was a nice surprise!

For this contest, lets focus on the Great Kings (and Queens) of the Past. We know its believed that they watch over from the stars and can give guidance and counsel. Mufasa visited Simba and told him to return to take his place as king, and he also visited Kion to help him run the Lion Guard. In addition, Mufasa watched over at Kiara's presentation. Do past royalty also attend other ceremonies, such as betrothals? Have any of the Great Kings or Queens visited Kiara? Do they visit in dreams or watch over their loved ones in spirit? How exactly does the Roar of the Elders work? Do the Great Kings sit in counsel together to discuss matters in the Pridelands? When a King visits someone, do other animals around see it as well?

The possibilities are endless! How do you think the Great Kings affect the lives of the royal family (or other animals in the Pridelands)?

Here's a contest theme that deserves to be explored more often: redesigning the TLK characters as some other species!

How about The Wildebeest King? The Walrus King? The Paramecium King? With so many millions of species in the world, there are nearly infinite ways this could go. And how would that choice of species affect how the characters interact with one another? Would a TLK with a cast of tigers even have a "pride", or could the story play out another way?

Let's have some fun with this! After all, plenty of other fandoms (the MLP one comes to mind) certainly get a lot of mileage out of species-swapping. Hmm, there's an idea for the next contest...

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for voting for me in the last contest, it means alot! <3

You read the contest title, didn't cha guys? And you know what it means? Moving art! Moving pictures! Animations! Something that would make the Archive even more lively!

I want moving pictures! I want it to consume my soul! 8D

Go ahead, fellas, go for it!

It's time to give the supporting characters some love. What if roles were swapped so that Nala was heir to Pride Rock instead of Simba, or Kiara was leader of the Lion Guard instead of Kion?

So, for this contest, who in the LK world would you redesign if you were in charge at Disney? Would you make the villains look less pointy so it would be harder to tell that they are the evil ones? Would you fix some of the strange age gap appearances? Or maybe you would change their design completely?
It's up to you! ^-^ Have fun and good luck!

Whoa! First of all, thank you so much to all who voted for me. I've never won one of these contests before, and this really made my day, thank you :)

Alright, so the next contest...

It's Halloween in a couple of weeks, so let's bring back a old classic in TLKFAA contests: Halloween Costumes!

Dress up one or more TLK characters in a costume to go trick-or-treating, spooking their friends, or simply to look awesome.

Costume ideas can range from cosplaying as other fandoms' characters to classic movie monsters. But be creative :)

Also, I'm aware that this contest has been done before, but this time around we have The Lion Guard, so that opens up many new options for ideas if you prefer.

Time for something a little different! Let's all try to do absolutely the most on-model drawing we possibly can.

Wow, thank you all so much for voting for me ^^

Okay, let's just dive right in!

I've been seeing a lot of headcanon designs for the first lion king lately, and it got me thinking about his origins. Where did he come from? What did he look like? What if a lioness founded the Pridelands and became the first monarch? The possibilities are endless!

Hi, wow... thanks a lot for everyone who voted for me :) This actually was the first contest I ever joined. Finding out I won just blew me away.

Okay, so here we go:

I chose "Twisted Characters" as a theme.

Just imagine the characters of The Lion King acted differently. What if Scar was actually a very sensitive, caring uncle? What if the hyenas were more of a maternal bunch of outsiders towards the lion cubs? What if Mufasa was a tyrant in reality? Or Timon and Pumbaa are outsiders for a reason?
Why not give the whole Scenery a more Tim Burton-esque style? Or why not show Simba in his despair while the memory of his father keeps returning to him over and over again?

Emotions are endless. Possibilities are numerous.

Be creative.

I kinda like twists, so why not try it on the Lion King? :D

Ready? Go...

First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for voting for me. I've never won one of these contests and never expected to... But, here we are.


BTW, I expect there to be huge amounts of entries in the contest! Let's make TLKFAA come to life, folks!

As all of us know, family and love are important themes in the TLK universe. Relationships such as the love Mufasa and Sarabi had for each other and for their son are part of what made the films so heartwarming and powerful.

My challenge for all of you is to create a scene depicting family and love in the TLK universe. Perhaps you could show a scene with Mufasa and Sarabi sharing a sweet moment with little Simba before tragedy befell their family.
You could also show Kovu and Kiara starting a family, with little cubs of their own.
What about Scar? Did he feel loved as a cub?
What about sibling relationships? Mufasa and Scar, Kiara and Kion?

However, don't limit yourself to the lions. In fact, I would HIGHLY encourage branching out and exploring the lives of some of the non-lion characters.
Did Rafiki ever have children?
What was Timon like as a pup, and who was his father?
What were Pumbaa's parents like?
Did Timon and Pumbaa ever find love and/or have children of their own?

Don't forget some of the very important "non-traditional" elements of family, and that deep friendship can be included as family, too. ;)

The possibilities are endless! Go nuts!

There were those times in the TLK movies that took place, but we didn't actually see.

For example, Nala's life during Scar's reign, Simba's time in the jungle, Sarabi learning the dreaded news about Mufasa, Scar walking Simba to the gorge, Kovu's training, Rafiki looking for Simba, Zazu's captivity etc.

So go ahead and illustrate a scene based on such an "unseen" period or moment!

If anyone deserves to be made into a recurring character, it's Jasiri. So this time, it's all about the only friendly hyena in the TLK universe.
Show off your most interesting Jasiri fan art, old or brand new! Or, if you have any theories or story ideas, let's see them! There are no other rules, get creative!

For this contest, I expect lots and lots of entries! C'mon guys, let's make TLKFAA grand again!

For this contest, I want you to put yourself in the movie. Or, well, your fursona anyway!

How would they react? And what generation would your character be? Would they meet cub Mufasa, or grown up Kion?

Would your fursona change in any way? Do you have a specific TLK fursona like I do? (Y'Sena) How would they feel about being in Africa if, for instance, they are a snow leopard!

Lots to think about :D

Thank you so much to all who voted for my piece in the last contest, this is my 2nd time winning an archive-wide contest. All thanks to you guys! <333

Now for the contest!

We all know very well about Kion's family, but what about his other lion guard's?

Is Fuli a cross-breed? Where is Bunga's mama? Who are their families? It's all up to you! Share some headcanons to me! I'd love to see it!

Let your creativity flow! ;D

Amber: "Mom! Look! A moon Halo! I've been wanting to show it to you forever! Their is a light ring around the moon! See it!?"
Angel (Mom): "Wow! That's really is amazing! You know what it means?"
Amber: "Someone's watching over us?"
Angel (Mom): "Yes. But also so much more. Faith, guidance and hope for the future."
Amber: "Mom? I love you Big BIG trees."
Angel (Mom): "I love you Biggest BIG trees ever."
Mothers are amazing people. They share every moment of our lives from the day we are born to the days we just want them to leave us alone and all the way til their last breath.

We can share with them our biggest secrets and greatest faults and they love us all the more. They drive us all around to school, friend's houses, stores, and work like our personal shofers. When we are in trouble even the meekest of Mom's turn into a roaring lion! And Woe to the ones who cause us trouble! Moms always Shelter us beneath their wings.

Dedicate some art to mothers! Maybe Sarabi was as mischievous as Simba as a cub, Maybe Sarafina was a cranky morning lioness, perhaps Zira actually had some tender moments, or Uru was actually a hardcore or lazy Mom.
What about your own Moms? Ever have a wonderful moment with her or she do anything to drive you insane? Maybe you wish you knew your Mom or that she was still with you...OR HEY, Run up to her RIGHT NOW and say "Hey! Mom! We are doing a collab! Lets TOTALLY kick the Archive's tails!!" While she looks baffled at you expecting her to draw something other than a stick figure. LOL. Come on. I'M CHALLENGING YOU!
