Scar gasps for air, his frail body convulsing with the effort. The hyenas could have finished him off easily enough, but that would have been far too kind and merciful. As he lies on the ground, he can feel the last of his energy leaving him. There is no use fighting it anymore. A strange haze seems to settle over the world and everything suddenly seems quiet and peaceful. His vision blurs and fades to black.
"Muffy?" A distant voice echoed in his head.
"Yes, Taka?"
"We'll always be bestest brothers, won't we?"
"Of course! Forever and always."

Riley is quite unhappy to be so drenched...he'll have to go roll in more dirt now to get nice and messy again!

I've been playing with changing a few things about Riley's design lately. Thinking of adding a tinge of reddish mane to his look around his throat. Not set in stone yet. Just thinkin' out loud.

TLK Themed Drawings
This is my secret santa gift for kenlybop, on Deviant Art and was held by the Deviant Art group, futuredisneyartists.

We had to list our fave Disney movies and two of them that she mentioned was Lion King and Tangled. So I got this idea! Simba and Nala watching the lanterns from the movie, though they are Christmas themed and the boat is decorated as well. The Christmas themed lanterns were actually my husband's idea. :)

Ref used:

Simba and Nala (C) Disney's The Lion King

Setting (C) Disney's Tangled

In a universe where Scar doesn't die at the end of the movie and instead is offered an exile and takes it, along with some faithful followers, to start his own pride elsewhere. Sarabi, concerned about Zira's newborn cubs fathered by Scar, argues for Zira to stay in the Pridelands as her only crime was being in love with the tyrant king. But she still doesn't trust her.

This is an AU which is presented on an rp site a few of us put together cause we wanted to get our some TLK jollies!

Featured Artist of the Month


It's time we recognized an artist whose contributions have been a familiar sight on our front page, since they arrive so regularly and so often: KimiKubby, whose long-running comic projects are in full swing and not slowing down anytime soon. She's been part of the site for many years, but her recent work has really made her star rise to new heights.
Hi ? Thankyou to everyone who voted me as the artist of the month! I've never been one before so this is really cool. ? I'd also like to thank everyone who still enjoys my comic as much as I do drawing it! ? I started properly drawing when I was 10 but had always like it. It helps me deal with a lot of things, like Anxiety, Depression and Autism. I also love videogames, music, puzzles and learning about all kinds of animals.

But I took big inspiration from the Lion King and at the time my two cats.

Since then, one cat has gone up with the great kings but I still find my animal family a big source of inspiration. ^-^

I plan to continue with my comic, there is still quite a lot of story I have in mind so I hope I can keep it interesting! ?

Hopefully I can make some gifs too, soon. ?

(I really have no idea what else to put here xD) Thankyou again to all the fans I have and to everyone who reads my not-so-little-anymore comic.
KimiKubby has been with the TLKFAA for some time now, but her star has rapidly risen with her production of a comic project called "A Different Story" which has spanned multiple years and nearly five hundred pages. Producing new pages at a remarkable rate of several per day, she has given rise to a whole new vision of the TLK story as it plays out in the generations following Simba's. An alternative universe in which Simba's youth plays out under a benevolent and blameless Scar, this story gives us a fresh look at the many different possibilities in which the deceptively simple family drama of the film can be reinterpreted and reimagined and yet remain just as fresh and satisfying as the one we're used to.

As the TLK fandom gears up for the upcoming live-action remake under Jon Favreau (slated currently for summer 2019), it's natural for us as fans to wonder what will remain the same and what will inevitably change. Disney live-action reboots in recent years have ranged from ambitious and audacious (The Jungle Book) to workmanlike and uninspiring (Beauty and the Beast); while we might all hope for a story treatment that adheres to the plot we're all familiar with, KimiKubby's work in alternate-universe comics helps to remind us that sometimes it's the adventurous attempts, the ones that aren't afraid to break the rules, that often stand a better chance of success.

KimiKubby's visual style, itself a wide-eyed and cheerful rebuild of the movie's designs, contributes a lot to the generally upbeat atmosphere of her comics. The characters are all easily recognizable identity-wise, but their designs are rethought in order to sidestep the character connotations that the original designs communicate. Scar (Taka) is no longer the skeletal, shadow-eyed figure Andreas Deja penned in whom you could see a villain even in static sketch form; rather, this interpretation of the character has the morally ambiguous aspect necessary for a character who is not evil at heart, but merely a misunderstood victim of circumstance. Similarly, the Outlander characters gain a family resemblance to the primary cast in which they all clearly come from the same place genetically. Even in the films the two prides could not have been more visibly different—almost distractingly so at times. It's interesting to see how a change in design can so profoundly affect how we react to characters' personalities just at a glance.

While a big part of her notoriety in the present day, these comics aren't by any means the only thing KimiKubby draws, either. With nearly 900 pictures overall, she's got quite a collection built up, and even some of the earliest ones display her quirky sense of humor very well: Scar and Simba fighting as scorpions, for instance, as a contest entry; or a variety of whimsical Christmas-themed pieces, all within the first year of her joining. Since then she's been honing her style and developing her artistic voice, and she seems to have found a comfortable place now: as a writer/artist of long-running serialized stories. This is by no means an easy thing to specialize in, and the more she does it the better her storytelling is going to get. It would not surprise me to see KimiKubby as the author of a full-scale published comic someday, considering how much enjoyment it brings her.

She's overcome a lot of challenges and continues to struggle today to bring us her creative work, but she's succeeding brilliantly and we all benefit greatly. We look forward to many more years of memorable Lion King art!
