5. Simba's Reign
Kion and Jasiri's friendship wasn't the first of its kind!

Generally I'm unimpressed by the German audio plays I see as little more than glorified fan fiction, particularly the second. But the first, "Friends for Life," features a familiar relationship, a friendship between Kopa and a young female hyena named Asante.

From the LK wikia article:

As the two play together, Kopa spots a line of ants crawling across the ground. He points them out to Asante. A gecko approaches and eats up the line of ants. Kopa explains to his friend that no one can change the course of nature.

Eerily similar to the scene with Kion, Jasiri, and the chameleon, no? (Though Asante saves the ants in the play.)

5. Simba's Reign
The Lion Guard Fridays!

Time for the premiere of the first official episode! (And the second, which has been online.) "Never Judge a Hyena by Its Spots," sounds fun!

Here are a couple of things I typed during my first watch of TLG - Return of the Roar:

<i>- Why are all the hyenas male? Shenzi was my favorite TLK hyena.
- Couldn't they have come up with a friendly hyena ally for once?</i>

Thus I was thrilled to find out about Jasiri, the friendly female hyena who appears today. I have a good first impression of her from the previews and I'm looking forward to the whole show. (Plus her song is so catchy!)

3. Mufasa's Reign
I guess my last Tama and Malka picture: begs the question - How did they end up together?

Answer: It was an arranged marriage, a betrothal similar to Simba and Nala's. Malka was next in line to reign over the highland lions, so he would need a mate. It was not unusual for the two prides to seek unrelated young lions from one another; this is how Sarabi came from the pride beyond the mountain to be engaged to Mufasa. In fact, Shungi, Malka's father (in this picture) is actually Sarabi's half-brother.

Tama and Kula were not good matches for young Simba because their father was Mufasa's cousin. However, since Malka shared no blood with Mufasa's line, they were ideal mates for him. Guess which one he ended up with? ;)

*Phew* This took me forever to complete. I should really get on to finishing trades I've promise. I can't remember who said the phrase in the picture, think it was some Saint.

A request from a shool friend.
She asked me to draw Scar, and she wants to give him to her father, cause when she was little she called him "Scar" when he was mean XD
I took a ref from a pic of a real lion lying on a rock.

Ya know. >>; I planned to put a background on this. The least I could do after making HappyLion wait... eight months for it. >>;;;;; But PhotoShop is mean, and it turned out icky. It turned the Outlands into throw-up, simply put. So that utterly phailed. But I put lots of effort into the shading on this one, and I think it looks AWESOME. (Plus, Saigon's nice words from earlier helped put me back in the TLK spirit. <3)

So, I DO intend to put a background on this later, when I get better at them. Until then, I can only give you this, Happy~ DD: Cawson, Vitani, and Kovu playing as cubs.

Also. Does anyone ELSE think Vitani has weird eyes that make her impossible to draw right unless you're some sort of super-god? >>;;;;

Hey kiddies! Well, last Thursday I was deeply honored and privileged to be able to have lunch with one of my dad's friends, who is a noted storyboard artist at Dreamworks. After lunch we toured the floor of the movie he's currently working on (he's head of story on it!), and it was amazing. The concept artwork for it was downright gorgeous, and the characters were all incredibly fascinating to look at and relate to. Afterward, we went to his office, and he showed me one of the storyboards he did, and even performed it with voices, sound effects, etc. :D It was brilliant, to say the least. He then gave me a small poster of one of the movie's characters, which I can't show to anyone right now, as Dreamworks would maul me. Thank you, Hamish!
