Archive-Wide Art Contest

Every couple of weeks, the Archive holds an art contest here on this page. The winner of the previous contest chooses the theme, sets the length of time, and manages the pictures that other artists create and submit to the contest for judging. Any logged-in user of the Archive can vote on their favorite picture, and the winner sets up the next contest!


Let's pay artistic homage to the visual spectacle of the film that started it all!

TLK is full of great still-frames and scenes, iconic images that embody character moments or dramatic establishing shots. And one of the most fun things about fan-art is seeing each individual artist apply their skills and their unique styles to those scenes, bringing a fresh twist on a visual we've all seen a thousand times before.

Some ideas:

- One of the animals during the opening "Circle of Life" introduction scenes

- The establishing shot of Pride Rock

- The presentation of Simba

- Scar planting the seeds of curiosity in Simba

- Simba and Mufasa following the stampede

- Crossing the log during "Hakuna Matata"

- Simba roaring in the rain at the end


You must pick a frame from the original movie to recreate. Beyond that, the sky's the limit!

You can redraw it from another angle; you can reimagine a daytime scene as night; you can swap characters around. Just try to make the scene recognizable as an original frame from the movie!

The goal is not to recreate the scene as faithfully as possible; there's no fun in just copy-pasting what's already there. Bring your own creativity and your own fresh spin, and show us what the scene would have looked like in your style!

This is my entry for the current contest "Redraw a Famous Frame." I chose to go with the "Different angle" idea. So I drew Nala when she's on top of Simba after fighting with him and then he says her name.
