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!

This contest focuses on the characters that we don't see in the movies or tv shows! This includes Kopa. There's no limit to what you can draw, as long as the focus is on a comic or book character! For example, does Tojo still hang out with his birds when he's grown? What does Malka's pride look like? Where does Ni come from, and why is he alone? You can even include characters who are mentioned, but never seen, like Afua. What does he look like? Crack open those old TLK comics and get to work!!

I know, I know. We've already had a few contests headed in this direction but thanks to the "Lion Guard" TV series we're in constant supply of young and innocent characters, whose future is yet to be designed. By you!
Imagine Fuli or Beshte for example. What would they be like as grown ups? How would they manage being part of both a family and the lion guard? Will Bunga ever grow up at all? What about the other characters in the show like Makini or Jasiri for example?
Where will Janja and his gang go (since its said in SP that the hyenas left the outlands)?
How will Kion react when he finds out that his sister became mate of the outlander Kovu? Where is he during the events of SP?
I hope, I've given you some ideas. ;) Just be creative and have fun!

Ah yes, The Lion King. The movie where it mainly focus the most majestic hair-styled felines in Africa in five letters, adding the ''S'' as a plural.

As main creatures of the movie, they get all the attention from everyone and are loved by everyone. It even led some fans to create their own unofficial Lion King characters. Lion FCs (''FC'' stands for FAN CHARACTER, because originality does not have it's place when the character is from an already existing fanbase). And there's also other kinds of feline TLK FCs, like leopards, cheetahs, servals, caracals...

BUT! Butbutbutbuttbutbuuuuuut... there are other creatures in the continent of Africa that PROBABLY would need some attention too! Like warthogs, baboons, meerkats, hornbills, hyenas... E-TSE-DERA! And has you've read, I included NO felines in these African creatures mention.

So, basically, the challenge is to draw a character in the movie that isn't a lion or even a feline, or make up your own non-lion-non-cat FC! Take my TLK furso-- ahem I mean, FEATHERsona Msanii as an example! It will be a good opportunity to try something different than felines! :D

Have fun!

Halloween is near! And as nearly every year we'll have ourselves a little Halloween-themed contest.
But this time - because I'm a evil little thing - I want you to combine the horrors of Halloween with the sweet, pink waves of love.
Everthing is possible! Scar singing "Be prepared" while Zira throwing flowers after him with an admiring smile? Of course!
Zombie-Simba taking his lovely corpse bride Nala out for a date? Sure!
A creepy sweet hyena wedding between the skeletons of the elephant graveyard? You bet on it!
Just be creative and have fun! :)

Now that we seem to have a viable replacement for Sketcher in the form of Drawpile, perhaps it's time we see what people can create with it!

Post your best creations using the new app—details are in the current Admin Announcement. Post as many entries as you like! There's no theme or concept other than that entries should be done in Drawpile; you might want to try some Fall-themed ideas, or even Halloween, though I think we might want to start a new contest for Halloween once this one is over.

Have fun! I hope Drawpile proves as enjoyable to use as Sketcher has always been!

Thankyou to all who voted for me in the last contest ^_^

The theme for this contest is based on The Lion Guard! Not the current but how did Scar's Lion Guard lions look? Names? Or even maybe the ones before Scar was a member??
Heck you could even design the future guard? Maybe consisting of Kions cubs or Kiaras?? :)

Hi! Thank you guys so much for helping me win the last contest. It means a lot.

The theme of this contest is quite simple. Take a character you like (or don't) and change their role in the story. For example, what if Scar was never power hungry? What would he have been like if he was made to be a good guy? Would he have helped Simba, or would the hyenas have manipulated him into doing their bidding anyway? What if Mufasa wasn't such a kind father? What kind of a villain would Kiara or Kion make? The ideas are endless.

I hope something like this wasn't done before. My creativity is rather low. Anyway, make sure to have fun! ^_^

Thank you so much for making me the winner of the last contest. First time ever winning one of these^^

For a long time now, I've been saying that sketches need love too so for this contest, submit your best sketches or black and white works.

Honestly, it was a fluke, I just wanted to put in SOMETHING and since I am a mainly traditional artist xD but thank you all so much!!

For this contest, I wanna tackle some things our fandom LOVES to theorize about: WHO IS NALA'S DAD??

Ah, but not JUST Nala's dad! ALL those missing family members we've never seen or met before! You know there are a ton! Who the heck is Kovu's dad? Where are Fuli's parents, and what do they look like? What about Zuri and Tiifu's parents? Could they be sisters, cousins, or not related at all? Or even Pumbaa's family?? Zazu's dad, Beshte's mom, Jasiri's parents, maybe even Shenzi's! Maybe her, Banzai and Ed were triplets! The possibilities are endless!

Show me what you think Nala's dad might look like, how his personality may be. Show me who you think Kovu's dad might be (I've always liked the Chumvi idea eheh but you don't have to x3), or any of the characters listed above! Or anyone I'm forgetting, I know I'm leaving a bunch out! Be creative, let's fill in those missing links! ;) <3

Thank you all so much for the votes! ;w; <3

From pencil and paper, paint and canvas, to sculptures, plushies, or other mixed media, we're going to focus on traditional art!

If just drawing on paper seems too easy, try branching out to a different media, or try approaching it from a different angle :3 There's more that can be done with paper than just drawing on it. Origami, paper dolls, paper cutting, paper mache...the list goes on! Be creative :D

Thank you guys so much for voting for my drawing, it made my day! ^^

For the next contest I thought it'd be cool to see how characters from TLK would look in a different drawing style other than Disney. For example, how would they look like if they existed in the world of The Simpsons?... Or maybe in japanese anime style?... How about Fairly Odd Parents style? Or something like Rick and Morty?
There's so many different cartoon styles out there you can try, so the choice is yours!

Thank you guys for the votes - it was a nice surprise!

For this contest, lets focus on the Great Kings (and Queens) of the Past. We know its believed that they watch over from the stars and can give guidance and counsel. Mufasa visited Simba and told him to return to take his place as king, and he also visited Kion to help him run the Lion Guard. In addition, Mufasa watched over at Kiara's presentation. Do past royalty also attend other ceremonies, such as betrothals? Have any of the Great Kings or Queens visited Kiara? Do they visit in dreams or watch over their loved ones in spirit? How exactly does the Roar of the Elders work? Do the Great Kings sit in counsel together to discuss matters in the Pridelands? When a King visits someone, do other animals around see it as well?

The possibilities are endless! How do you think the Great Kings affect the lives of the royal family (or other animals in the Pridelands)?

Here's a contest theme that deserves to be explored more often: redesigning the TLK characters as some other species!

How about The Wildebeest King? The Walrus King? The Paramecium King? With so many millions of species in the world, there are nearly infinite ways this could go. And how would that choice of species affect how the characters interact with one another? Would a TLK with a cast of tigers even have a "pride", or could the story play out another way?

Let's have some fun with this! After all, plenty of other fandoms (the MLP one comes to mind) certainly get a lot of mileage out of species-swapping. Hmm, there's an idea for the next contest...

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for voting for me in the last contest, it means alot! <3

You read the contest title, didn't cha guys? And you know what it means? Moving art! Moving pictures! Animations! Something that would make the Archive even more lively!

I want moving pictures! I want it to consume my soul! 8D

Go ahead, fellas, go for it!

It's time to give the supporting characters some love. What if roles were swapped so that Nala was heir to Pride Rock instead of Simba, or Kiara was leader of the Lion Guard instead of Kion?
Ended 2016-11-10 00:00:00.0

So, for this contest, who in the LK world would you redesign if you were in charge at Disney? Would you make the villains look less pointy so it would be harder to tell that they are the evil ones? Would you fix some of the strange age gap appearances? Or maybe you would change their design completely?
It's up to you! ^-^ Have fun and good luck!

Whoa! First of all, thank you so much to all who voted for me. I've never won one of these contests before, and this really made my day, thank you :)

Alright, so the next contest...

It's Halloween in a couple of weeks, so let's bring back a old classic in TLKFAA contests: Halloween Costumes!

Dress up one or more TLK characters in a costume to go trick-or-treating, spooking their friends, or simply to look awesome.

Costume ideas can range from cosplaying as other fandoms' characters to classic movie monsters. But be creative :)

Also, I'm aware that this contest has been done before, but this time around we have The Lion Guard, so that opens up many new options for ideas if you prefer.

Time for something a little different! Let's all try to do absolutely the most on-model drawing we possibly can.

Wow, thank you all so much for voting for me ^^

Okay, let's just dive right in!

I've been seeing a lot of headcanon designs for the first lion king lately, and it got me thinking about his origins. Where did he come from? What did he look like? What if a lioness founded the Pridelands and became the first monarch? The possibilities are endless!
