Art block. Ugh. So I made an attempt at drawing an adolescent Zuri from TLG (whomItotallyshipwithKionok), because drawing is better than not drawing! ✏️

Changing medium also tends to help getting some inspiration back, so I tinkered with my graphite aquarelle pencils as well. I love them and am sloowly figuring out how to use them xD Original is geryscale, but I added a bit of sepia tone for the scan (which looks quite different from the original anyway..!)

I made another Lion Guard drawing, apparently :P Fuli! Who is awesome :) And slightly redesigned, because I couldn’t help myself... 8)


Also, hey! If you want to follow my most active art account I direct you to my Twitter -> @anneffra where I post both finished things and doodles these days, for the simple reason that I draw mostly on the iPad at the moment, and Twitter is the fastest and easiest platform to publish things on without having to fuss with resizing and resolution *lazy* So feel free to say hi there <3

Superboy and the Invisible Girl...
Son of steel and daughter of air.
He's a hero, a lover, a prince—
She's not there.


Her father thought only of his lost son, the perfect prince he had... could have had. And meanwhile she, Kiara, she was there. Alive! She could be everything her brother was and more! But she was invisible. Hopelessly invisible.

And all the while - the princess knew it as well as the king did - her brother was always there. Always watching and always overshadowing her...

---

Continuation of the "N2N!Kopa" thing originally sort of meant for the "Twisted characters" contest but I didn't finish in time. Lots of inspirations came together for this one :'D Further details in the comments, again!

When I appear it's not so clear if
I'm a simple spirit or I'm flesh and blood...

But I'm alive,
I'm alive,
I am so alive


--------

I realised I never posted this here! It's from way back in January and was/is kind of my commentary on the whole Kopa vs Kion spectacle.
Kopa is like the fandom ghost - he doesn't exist and he's not alive, or is he?? Either way, he will haunt TLK fans forever! *cackle*

Ahem.

In my Pride Land history series, Kopa would become something of a legend and his story shrouded in mystery. Some believe he existed, some do not.
But in Simba's mind it is all too real. No matter how much he tried to tell himself that Kopa was gone, he never could rid himself of the ghost.

Mohatu’s older brother.

Read more about him in my Characters section.

I was in a fan-fiction mood one day and started writing some Pride Land history :P I remembered how much I adored The Black Cat's stories back in the day - I pretty much knew all the characters off by heart - so I wanted to make something like that of my own. I've been doodling some of the characters recently, so I may post them here too :3

Her design is pretty much based on older versions of Sarabi and for once I will say I'm proud of this. I'll even go as far as to say "use the design if you want to, you don't have to ask" xD

And for those of you who don't know, Naanda was the sister of Sarabi (and mother of Nala) in older versions of The Lion King scripts :) And any and all semi-official Lion King characters will gain popularity in the fandom - simple as :P

<i>Across hill and stream, up the mountains and across the gorge... He had run until he could run no more. An ousted king. Defeated. Exiled. The seasons had at last taken their toll on the proud lion's body and the challenge from the two young males had been too much.

He was the defender no longer.

Now he was nothing. Nothing but an old tanglemane.</i>

----

Last minute entry for the current contest! My theory is that he took on the new name "Tanglemane" after he was driven out of his kingdom, in shame over having been defeated.

Sorry for the lack of a real lineart, I just wanted to get this done before it ended xP

The sky burned with the setting sun. And the chase continued on. Asim was the lord of the land; the defender, the protector. He would not let this scoundrel threaten his family or his kingdom! Across hill and stream, up the mountains and across the gorge, the king would catch him. And when he did, the vermin would wish he had never come here...

----

For the contest.

Tanglemane (which I've renamed Asim) in his prime, hunting down an intruder. Turned out very... red. Again. I like red... xP

The perspective probably is very ugly, so apologies for that. I have to practise it sometime :'D

I meant to draw and upload this character ages ago, but now someone beat me to his discovery, oh dear ;D This handsome fellow appears in a story called "In Deep Water", from The Lion King magazine. The full story is scanned by Animon, here: http://animon.deviantart.com/art/Tanglemane-4-Rinja-266276354
I'm curious to see whether this is one of those characters who catches on or not xD I bet his real name isn't Tanglemane though... I thought Asim ("protector/defender") would suit him, myself C:

And that blasted water was such a challenge. I've never done this kind of water before and I think I'm kind of happy with it now. Actually drawing and finishing Kiara (who is normally the hardest character for me to draw) took probably less than half the time of the water :P Completely disregard the rest of the background. Ugh.

But, yes. A finished piece! Huzzah! I know my uploading rate has been incredibly bad recently :( I've been drawing lots though, just nothing worth showing off. Hopefully I'll change that soon xP

For a sort of "group collab" with LionKingStorytellers on dA - it's going to be a montage where a different artist draws each character. And the idea for the montage is to come up with an idea of what a Lion King character would do with a piece of paper. I got Ni! And it struck me that I've never drawn him before. Shaame on you, Kanu! D:<

I think Ni would probably keep a sort of travel diary, but the paper he found is a little... flaky 8P Maybe you'll get it if you've read the book, haha.

<i>...But the Pride Lands had prospered under her rule, they cleverly called it "The Golden Era", and she would leave the lands much greater than they had been when she and Kovu, as Prince Regent, had assumed the thone.

But the old Queen longed to return those truly golden days. Even if her children, her pride and her subjects brought her great joy, she longed to be with him again... She couldn't help but wonder... when would the sun set on her time here?</i>

For the contest: A "dramatic" cover for Simba's Pride. I started out with a different concept, but I saw that so many others had already used basically the same idea so I went for this instead. Only Kiara, Simba and Zira made it onto this cover but they are the key characters of the film, so I consider it okay. Kiara is running, for dramatic effect :B (though she does do quite a bit of running in the film, haha)

It's a tad wonky, but isn't all Disney cover art these days? 8P

The logo is Disney's, obviously; Pride Rock was referenced from a screenshot; used Epona's tree brushes for the trees and I had the aid of a 3D model for Kiara's pose.

Edit: O_O I... I won!? Oh my goodness. Thank you all so so much for the votes!

"Uru..." Ahadi murmured in a low voice after calming down somewhat. "The night before our cubs were born... I had a dream. My mother came to me in my dream. And she said... she said a dark prince would be born. His rule would bring chaos and ruin upon our lands... And the next day... The nexy day I saw our sons. My mother knew..." He paused and looked away for a moment, as if gathering courage to say what would come next. "Uru, Taka must never be king."

The cubs crouched down in the tall grass and watched their target, a small hyrax, intently. Kula shifted nervously.

"So... Are you really sure about this?"

"Of course I am! We must learn to hunt sooner or later! No time like the present!" Chumvi growled. With the prey decreasing as it was, he suspected that it would be better to learn to hunt for themselves rather than depend on the lionesses. The hyenas gobbled up most of what the huntresses brought home anyway...

"But, the poor thing... Must we really--?" Kula tried.

"YES! Now be quiet and watch me...!"

Though of course, Chumvi's shout scared off the prey...

Vitani slowed to a halt. Kovu saw the hesitation in his sister's eyes and grinned.

"Come on, Tani. You're not scared are you? The Pridelander wasn't afraid. You don't want to be weaker than the pretty little princess, do you?"

Vitani said nothing. Darn these crocodiles. Those were the only things she truly feared. Besides her mother, naturally...

Kovu grinned wider. He knew Vitani wouldn't dare follow him across, and that would give him the perfect chance to see that Pridelander cub Kiara again...

It still hurt, it did, but it had already been a whole moon since he died and they needed to stop thinking about death and live life... Still no movement from the girls however.

It was true that the Queen's presence did make his heart skip a beat, but he also knew that she was very much off limits for him. She belonged to Simba and Simba belonged to her; there was no way he could ever threaten to interfere with that. Still, though, he couldn't rule his feelings... And hadn't she, too, been, well... eyeing him an awful lot recently?

Kovu, taking a break from the pride, went for a morning stroll in his new home. He still had a hard time believing it; the Pride Lands now belonged to him too and maybe, just maybe, he would be king after all. Kovu climbed onto a rock that jutted out over a small pond and gazed into the distance but quickly recoiled as he realized what he was staring at. The Outlands. Dead ahead. For the last couple of days, that place had for once not been on his mind, but now all the memories came surging back - the pain, the suffering, the sorrow... But the war was over; he would never have to go out there again. It was going to take some time getting used to.

Battered, bruised and exhausted after a particularly gruelling day of training, Kovu finally got to lie down on his favourite lookout. With a heavy sigh he let his head drop onto his front paws, trying not to groan from the pain. Why was his mother doing this to him? She kept saying it was for his own good and that his training was vital for when the day the battle against Simba came. But maybe she was right? Somebody that had caused him so much pain, even indirectly, deserved to have the same back. Yes... Simba was his enemy. His enemy! It was HIS fault that they had to live in this wasteland! And HIS fault that Kovu had to fight until he fainted! His fault... Yes, Zira had to be right.

Coloured the 2009 cub Scar from this picture: http://kanutgl.deviantart.com/art/Quest-for-Improvement-135308757 :) Drew his scar here even though I don't believe he actually got it until adolescence. The 2009 cub Mufasa will be done too eventually :3

Just a little something to keep me awake... xP I tell you, I was not made to get up at 5:30 in the morning x_x Also I shall mention that this was done completely without references >D *is proud*

Won't you stay to see?
Stealing through the night's uncertainties
A love for you and me...</i>

I've wanted to try doing something like this for a while now and since the contest is background-themed I thought "Why not" :P I'm still not liking certain parts of it, but I can't do it better than what it is now... I used Epona's incredibly handy tree- (and some foliage) brushes for most of the vegetation. Thank you Epona for saving me a load of work xD

Based on the early version of CYFtLT (which is an absolutely beautiful version btw; the best of them all) <3

There are about four people in the world who will understand the true meaning behind this one... XD

Inside jokes ftw. Ask nicely and I might explain what it's all about =P

Btw, yes, I'm aware of that hyhlion has a similar drawing to this - but my picture is neither inspired by or referenced from his. Just so you know =)

"The idea for an African story told with lions had been in the development at the studio since 1989 in various forms and under various titles. Some early versions read like a dusty African homage to Bambi. Some featured characters like Simba's little brother Meetoo..." - Don Hahn (Producer of The Lion King)

That quote made me curious... Where exactly is Mheetu/Meetoo referred to as Nala's brother? What if he was in fact Simba's little brother...?

He turned out to be quite the Simba-clone however, so I decided to give him green eyes instead to try and make up for it somehow xP I like his eyes that way though 8D

I seriously have no idea of how old this thing is, but it's been in my WIPs forever so I thought that I might as well finish it off so I can delete the PSD-file... The only thing I like about this picture is Nala and some of the shading on her. The background is horrid x.x

If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

If I never knew you
I'd be safe but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true

Because I think that song fits them so well - they complete each other in such a sweet way.
I have nothing against Kiara; she's has lots of inner strength and is very kindhearted, if not a little too naïve. I still like her though.
For ze contest :3

Edit: No way, a shared 4th place!? *squeal* Thank you -so- much for the votes! ^__^

Expression practise! My victims became Malka, Tojo and Chumvi, because I've managed to never draw them before D:

The faces are all reffed from the "How to draw The Lion King"-book. My favourite is the left Tojo :) My least favourite is the right Tojo.
Also used Autumnstar's awesome colour palette!

Exile!? She couldn't believe it! How could her father be so reckless!? He hadn't even cared to listen to the other version of the story!
"Kovu!"
Kiara ran from Pride Rock, calling out his name even though she knew it was useless. He would not be there... The young Princess stopped to rest upon a log, one that formed a bridge over the river, and, without thinking, looked down at her reflection. What she saw made her gasp. Was there only half of her? Suddenly an old memory made itself known.
"I'm not only the Princess, you know! That's only half of who I am!"
"Oh, uh... who's the other half?"

The other half... Yes... Now she knew.

"Oh, the termites!"
Nuka growled and slumped down on his behind once more to frenetically try and scratch off the termites that kept feasting on his skin. "It's always me! WHY is it ALWAYS ME!?" he complained, as sulky as always.

Kovu worried neither for his brother's termite problem or his loud complains, for the young cub now saw his chance to escape his watcher... And quiet as a shadow through the still lingering morning mists, he sneaked off.

“We must do something...” Sarabi said. “Someone must go out there and find somebody willing to help us. Someone young and strong, someone brave enough...”

Shemshi looked at her Queen and friend. How different she had become... She had
gone from noble Queen to rebel since Scar took over the throne. And, yes, she was right,
something had to be done... “Somebody young and strong” Sarabi had said. Shemshi
sighed. They both knew who the Queen was talking about.
