I was inspired by four songs for this, originally - " This Land " and " Under The Stars ". But, when it came to the lyrics of course the inspiration came from - " Endless Night " and " Shadowlands ".

My entry for the contest :)

Edit: Oh yeah. http://koifishsushi.deviantart.com/art/Endless-Shadowlands-77682185 Better Quality ^__^

Edit: :B Thanks for 4th place! I've never placed in any of the contest I've entered so this means ALOT to me ^___^

I first did this several years ago, but I was always bothered by the lines and shadows of the pic. I recently went and re-inked the entire image and added nicer looking shading and highlights. It looks much better now. Based on the song 'Shadowlands'

Sarabi was going to be protecting Malka from Shenzi.. but perhaps she's protecting him from Scar after Mufasa's death... After all real lions do that don't they.. stop a threat before it happens.

This was completely done in Sketcher.

Thanks Kora for planting ideas in my head! :D

5 - Seeking Solace


As the Pridelands fell further and further into darkness, sources of comfort became exceedingly rare. And for Nala, there was only one lion whose presence could bring solace, and peace--if only for moments at a time.

Nala and Ni, of course. Ni is a rogue from TLK6NA. Aisha named this request as her prize for correctly naming all the characters in my Disney cat pic. I completely forgot that I hadn't uploaded it yet!

This was meant to be a sort of contrast to Nala and Simba's romance in TLK. I tried to make Ni look older and perhaps a bit more groomed, but I'm more pleased with Nala. Some PS tree brushes used in the bg. There are parts of this that bother me now, but I hope you like it, Aisha!

TLK 100 Pictures Challenge
Search after search continued, with no sign of anything larger than a mouse. Nala and the younger lionesses were just about able to cope, but the futile hunts took their toll on the older lionesses.

Forced out again by Scar every time they returned empty handed, resentment and exhaustion spread unchecked.

Nala, moved by the suffering of her sisters, couldn't stay any longer and fled across the barren lands, in a desperate search for something or someone who could make things better.

93) Give Up. Because they never did.

I would really appreciate comments on this. I put a good deal of time into it and would like to know what you think.

Ok -clears troat- it's theory time! Yay!
When Scar was king, we wanted absolutely no opposition to his rule. So, rather than risk the male cubs in the pride growing strong and taking over, he banished them to the outlands. Starving and alone, the cubs soon succumbed to hunger, thirst, and hyenas. Anyone who dared to try and protect the cubs from their fate was sentenced to certain death as well. Makuu's (see my "My Characters" page) children, Nuka and Kovu, were the last sentenced to death in the outlands, and they were the only one's to ever come out alive...

4. Scar's Reign
Most neighboring prides laid low during the time of the Shadowlands, avoiding even thoughts of the dark tyrant - lest he turn his attention their way. They retreated to their far territories and survived the drought, seldom glancing towards the borders once shared with King Mufasa.

But things were different in the pride on the far side of the mountain, the one which had borne Mufasa's queen. The highland lions' bloodline was strongly interwoven with that of the Pridelanders'. They could not ignore the darkness, standing sentinel on their slopes as the once proud land withered and died.

Among the scouts, one pair felt the deepest loyalty of all: a young lioness who could not forget, and a heartbroken brother who would not forgive.

Nala leaves the Pridelands, the Shadowlands.

Ah. This was fun. Nala's hard to draw....
