My Lion King ResurgenceAs you might have noticed, I'm uploading a lot more lion king pages lately... I blame this on the news about The Lion Guard (for details read this journal http://albinoraven666fanart.deviantart.com/journal/The-Lion-Guard-UPDATE2-459843364 )... Damn it Lion King! I try to break away and you suck me back in!!!
Anyway, yeah... I'm all Lion King nerded out again, much to all your pleasure I'm sure. I am still drawing Dinosaurs in my free time and stuff like that, but I really want to solidify my idea, story, and style before I even bring the story to the public so maybe it's good for me to be uploading TLK stuff in the mean time.
But yeah, Uru's Reign Part 2 is trucking along pretty well. I'd say we're only about a third, close to half, of the way through it. Then we'll move onto Mufasa's Reign which is quite short, Close to the length of The East Land Chronicles. Then to Scar's Reign, which will be very long and broken into two parts, like Uru's Reign, with a mini comic like The East Land
The Lion Guard? UPDATE2Another Update:The Lion Guard? UPDATE21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Another article basically saying the same stuff as before, but on the Disney.com blog http://blogs.disney.com/insider/2014/06/10/be-prepared-for-the-lion-guard/?cmp=SMC
The more I read, even though there isn't a lot of info out, the more excited I am. I totally hopped right on into the excitement of this once I found out Kion is Kiara's YOUNGER brother. I'm really hoping it takes place with Kiara as an adult with Kovu and the Outlanders being a part of the Pride, but we'll see. Even if it doesn't, I'm sure the fandom could still make it work somehow. Squee, I'm excited. Shame we'll have to wait a year or two XD
Got this bit of info from :iconrinjapine: 's latest journal Kiara will appear as Kion's older sister http://tvline.com/2014/06/10/disney-junior-lion-king-sequel-series-the-lion-guard/ Which means he is NOT Kopa. So stop it you Kopa-Crazies XDD. I'm glad they'll be including Kiara, I was worried that Kion would be created a

The Moyo-Taka-Sarafina DebateWell the last few pages have definitely opened up a huge amount of commenting and debate in regards to Moyo, Taka, and Sarafina. So I thought I'd put my personal thoughts on the subject in this journal just for funzies.The Moyo-Taka-Sarafina Debate2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to start with Taka's behavior. Yes, Taka did have a point with what he said to Moyo, a point I will talk about a bit later, but Taka's behavior was completely unreasonable. Taka is a Prince of the Pride Lands. He is supposed to represent what the kingdom stands for. After all, your behavior as a child reflects positively or poorly upon the parents that raised you. And if your parents are the King and Queen a Prince should make a point of acting mature and positive to give a positive reflection of the kingdom and the rulers. Ahadi and Uru accepted the East Landers and Moyo into the pride with open arms and grace. And Taka behaving as he is reflects badly upon the rest of the Pride Lands. Had Uru and Ahadi been around, they would have been disgusted with his beh
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!Hear me roar, you guys! The first draft of the novel is done, done, DONE! 8D It's all written! 351 pages of pure awesome (I like to think), and that means after a couple more read through from myself and the betas, and a few new betas for second opinions, it WILL BE PUT ON SALE. I even have a cover being worked on, and it should be ready, too, very very soon!BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
HOLY COW I AM SO STOKED I COULD POP. POP!
Can you believe it??? 351 pages.
Start date: March 28th
End date: July 14th
I am proud of me. That's a LOT of work in only a few months. A LOT. For me. Maybe someone else could have written it faster, but this was my speed, and I think it was pretty darn good for someone who previously had never managed more than 80 pages over TEN YEARS.
*Flails* Ok, guys. PARTY TIME.
Then I gotta go out there and promote, promote, promote, and I would be very appreciative of ANY help you guys can give me on that front. Tell your friends and family, if you think they'd

I'll hand out the prizes tomorrow, I gotta go to bed! But congrats everyone!
Contest WinnersIt was soooooo hard to pick. There were so many very good entries, but here's how I have decided. I picked based off of skill, color, and the ability to look like canon style, but aren't an obvious reference from movie screen shots. Originality and beauty. Beauty doesn't necessarily meant the characters. I was also looking at value, lighting, backgrounds, and so on. I even looked at panel layout and text and I have made my mind up!!!Contest Winners3 years ago in Personal More Like This

She hates Kevin Bacon. (Also hash tags).
Thought I'd get that sad journal off my page and replace it with something... Truly beautiful.

Also, please comment on it with what you think! Hopefully Act II should be made into a video as well!
Soooo much thanks to the creator of the video for turning my comic into something so cool!
NEWS: And I'm sure you've been wondering about the fate of INK-- it is certainly NOT BEING DROPPED! I was on a temporary and sudden hiatus due to school, stress, and some other factors. It will return; hopefully very soon. So just sit tight and INK will be back! Until then, watch that awesome video!
Themes+Symbols in Lion KingOne of Disneys masterwork films is The Lion King. While some may dismiss it as nothing more than a childrens movie, they fail to see that like most fairy tales it contains much deeper themes. Its a classic bildüngsroman, or coming-of-age story, that describes how a son matures into his father, or how men mature and become more like God.Themes+Symbols in Lion King6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
The first image in the movie is a rising sun. This is consistent with the theme of The Circle of Life. The sun represents a never-deviating pattern of death and rebirth through its daily rising and setting, an eternal constant that embodies the Circle of Life. The movie primarily deals with the Scars attempt not only to disrupt the entire cycle in his seizure of power, but also the internal cycle of growth in Simba. Only by reclaiming his lost Self can Simba restore balance to the Pride Lands and to himself.
Scar is quickly characterize
