Current Art Contest

MufaSanta Claws Is Here!

It be the time where you get present, spend time with your family and friends and eat chocolate, even if you're a cat and that cats can't taste sweet things.
Scientifically proved.

So the theme of this Archive-Wide contest is already obvious!

Draw Lion King related Christmas pictures. Draw snow in Africa or simply draw the great royal MufaSanta Claws! Or something more of your creativity!

I'd also love to see a full picture with many Canon characters and a magnificent Christmas decorated background!

But draw what you can!

Have fun participating and Merry Christmas!

The Lion King: Forgotten Story
This picture is a redraw of a piece I've done five months ago. I removed it because of really rude comment that appeared then, telling me how... (censored word xc )... my art and unlikeble my characters are. No kidding, it was writed just directly and with very mean words that seriously hurted my feelings. But two days ago I looked at it again and decided to give that piece another try. And here's the effect c;

Scarla
I finally finished it!
Happy 10 (almost 11 now lol) year birthday to Scarla - the first character I ever designed and has been a staple throughout my journey as an artist <3
Doing this piece I had a lot of health issues going on, I am so grateful to be an artist and to have this outlet in difficult times.

That night Feva dreamt about the little cub that had to be born yet.. would it be a male or female? In het dream, Feva played along with the little one. "let climb that blue wall auntie!" the little one called Feva. Feva tried to keep up with the small and fast climber. When they get up, Feva is exhausted. "you little ones don't get tired at all, eh?" she sighs to the, nameless, genderless and unborn dream cub.

I found this little gem sitting incomplete in a folder since July of 2016, which I had completely forgotten about.

The drawing overall isn't quite up to my standards anymore, but seeing it gave me a smile on a crappy day (I've been petsitting for two weeks now and woke up this morning to find that the geriatric cat I was watching had very unexpectedly passed away overnight) so I felt that it deserved to be completed.

I upload here /very/ infrequently, so if you enjoy my work you can check out more at https://runningspud.deviantart.com/

[Auto upload is still a thing, right? What are the steps needed these days for it? I'm rarely active, but have been consistently on topic for 9 years now]

Featured Artist of the Month

Sukala A.P.

Sukala A.P. is definitely one of the stars of the TLKFAA these days. With an unquenchable spirit of fun and creativity, she's established herself in a very short time as one of the most memorable, most valued members of our community thanks to frequent postings of wild, zany, and always unpredictable expressions of joy and fun. It's exactly the kind of spirit that has kept this community so vibrant for so long, and it assures me that there's plenty of energy in this fandom to sustain new generations of fan-artists every time the calendar ticks over.
*heavy breathing* 8C

So.... it appears that I am the new Artist of the Month. What reactions could I have? Screams? Cries? Heart attack? Why not all of these togheter?

No seriously, it is such an honor to be elected Artist of the Month! I want to thank everyone who voted for me, THANK YOU ALL! ❤ ❤ ❤

Now with my history:

So, I started browsing through the Internet when I was 6 to discover beautiful Lion King fanart. And this is how I discovered The Lion King Fan-Art Archive. I already liked The Lion King, that time, but the Archive is what got me deeper into my childhood fandom. I loved Bambi really much at first, but mother thought I should calm down and try to find other things too. Then obviously The Lion King came. All this fandom also comes from YouTube (people who uses other artist's TLK works in their videos ) and deviantART. I got so inspired by all the fanart and fan stories, the ones with Scar's past, Kopa and Kovu and Kiara's possible babies that I started drawing alot, alot and ALOT. Drew so many lions, drew so many comics. For this occasion, I will redraw old TLK pieces from my younger days.

For those who doesn't know, I am diagnosed with a unspecified case of autism, which is not a disease, but a condition you can improve. That means my way of thinking and acting is different, I see images in my head that people don't understand even when I explain it. How to explain these things in my mind? It's simple; I draw it, even if it doesn't look exactly what you imagined. Drawing art is not meant for perfection, but for imagination and creativity.

You may be surprised, but before all of this happened, I actually hated drawing when I was 4. My mother made me try to hold a pencil, and I actually and obviously did it!

And this is how I got here. And I still draw wonderful contributions to this amazing Disney movie, and I don't know when or if I'll ever stop. 😉

I love this website deep in my heart and I would completely do anything to support it! It brings so many memories of the first days.

Thank you so much everyone! *licks the screen*
One of the things that strikes me right off the bat with Sukala A.P.'s art is that she's embraced the new addition to the TLK canon, The Lion Guard, for a lot of her inspiration. This in itself isn't remarkable, surely—after all, TLG is the first real shot in the arm that the Lion King universe has had in an awfully long time, and small wonder that it would spark some new interest among fan creators. But Sukala A.P. has made it a special focus of her art, weaving the new TLG characters seamlessly into her work and making them feel at home in this over-20-year-old fictional universe.

What this illustrates to me, and what makes Sukala A.P. particularly deserving of the spotlight, is her spirit and enthusiasm in keeping the fandom itself alive. This isn't just a passing fancy for her: it's a home. It's a place to be for the long haul. And as particularly exemplified by her active efforts to bring attention back to the TLKFAA in an era when many old-guard artists have left and many up-and-coming ones might not even have heard of us here, she's putting in a level of effort at cheerleading that truly deserves accolades.

This kind of thing often goes thankless. But I want to make sure she knows it's appreciated.

And I think everyone here, though surely nobody has overlooked her vibrant contributions when they appear on the front page, owes it to themselves to take a browse through Sukala A.P.'s gsallery. As befits her personality and her winning attitude, her art shows a loose, fun-loving quality that bowls you over with its energy level and its sincerity. Whether she's creating a comic or a single frame of cel-style animation art, she throws herself wholly into the moment—her characters' trademark exaggerated facial features and body language contributing more than their fair share to the mood of the piece. It's a style of overt "cartoonishness" that reminds me of the kinds of specific-acting animation techniques promulgated by John Kricfalusi in the long analyses he has posted on his blog over the years. Animation, John K says, is uniquely suited to conveying the kinds of intricate forms of expression that are part of the human experience, because we can exaggerate the subtle little quirks of facial movements and body language to instantly convey a feeling, in a way that is often lost in live action. It's refreshing, in that way, to see some of these kinds of acting techniques applied to the TLK lions, giving them a life you don't see in the relatively restrained, formal style of the feature films.

Which of course leaves us to wonder what might come with the "live-action" TLK reboot by Jon Favreau that is on its way to us in the next couple of years. Sukala A.P., notably, is optimistic about it, and I am too—it seems to be getting the same level of respect and attention to detail that the original film did. And even without that aspect, it's another new injection of life for the franchise, and one that will bring renewed attention and enthusiasm—and another new generation of fans and their unique creative visions—to our community.

Sukala A.P.'s contribution to the TLKFAA over the last three years has been incalculable—not just because of her art, though that in itself of course is always a delight. It's her effervescence, her cheer, her very presence on the site that helps remind us all that there's something special here, something we don't get elsewhere.

For my money, one of those somethings is Sukala A.P. herself, and that's quite a big perk.

Congratulations!
