From a wonderful one-shot by ~Tearthgrrl[link] my favorite pairing, thinking about each other Quite out of character huh? I just adore them. Read the one-shot if you haven't read it yet. Yeah, I like to jump from violence and gore to romance Banzai and Shenzi (c) Disney Art (c) me PS. Message to Shenzi from Lux: "Eccheccazz!!! What are you waitin' for, the end of the world?? He's so darned lovely! Go to him!"
Shenzi/Banzai fans, this one's for you It appears that Mufasa's name scares the hell out of Shenzi, so Banzai takes advantage I wanted to submit it tomorrow, but I'll be busy. Banzai and Shenzi (c) Disney Art (c) me
EDIT: I gave an eye to the old one and I wanted to cry myself for how ugly it looked. It definitely needed to be remade! So I remade everything, background included. Hope you guys like it
Since Shenzi is the last character you expect to cry, I wanted to give her a touch of feeling I don't know why she's crying... But I would LOVE to have Ed and Banzai to comfort me when I'm sad! (which happens often lately)
Figured it was about time I tried my hand at drawing the main hyena trio...as cubs! Yes, cubs...I'm pretty sure that's the correct term. Hyenas are NOT canines, so I think calling them "pups" is incorrect. They're actually much closer to felines on the family tree...they're pretty uh, special and unique though, as a species overall.
Anyways, here's Shenzi, Banzai and, of course, Ed! Who just so happens to be one of my all time favorite characters. I used to be able to laugh just like him as a kid.
PS: I didn't give Ed his torn up ears on purpose! I think he'd get those later on.
Experimenting with the pen tool/gradients/ all possible approaches to shading that went too far and ended up a fully fledged drawing. Took about an hour of tweaking until I was satisfied with the shading and was finally confident with all the tools (I depend too much on the paintbrush). Pretty much went on a drawing spree on my only free weekend for this term, many doodles are now awaiting submission. This little fella started out as a doodle in my sketchpad when I was watching Lion King in Zulu (no idea why but it was interesting). Really unhappy with his mane, it should be fuller and messier, but other than that I'm happy with how he turned out.
Ed is here too but he won't be colored for a while, as I have to finish the coursework that this was a test subject for. Once I'm done I'll get him finished and submit him alongside his pal. Shenzi is unfinished but her face is the bane of my drawing existence so she won't be up for a loooooong time.
Banzai belongs to Disney Art belongs to me, please don't use without my permission.
Forget goths, gangstas and mercenaries, THIS is the REAL anthromorphic take on the hyenas.
Presenting Tribal Shenzi, carrying a bloody bone knife carved from a rib-bone, and a bow with arrows flighted with hornbill feathers. The quiver is tied to her leg with vines. She wears clothes sewn together from animal hides, and jewellery constructed mostly from vines, bones, teeth and clay beads, except the coiled snake armband, which is made from silver and is her symbol of authority.
Furthermore she sports the scratches little Simba gave her that Disney saw fit to remove after three seconds.
And I found an absolutely BEAUTIFUL picture of the savannah at night, to use as the background.
It was difficult to finish this picture, because I kept thinking up ways to improve it. Eventually I flipped the direction Shenzi faces so that I could make her scratches more obvious, filled in her other ear, and changed her eye markings to dark brown, like they should be, and not black. Still, I REALLY like this picture. I think I'll do the other hyenas.
Surprise!!!!! oh! how I miss them so ^^ I know you guys want me to see more of those two and I do too Banzai is so hungry for Shenzi now! X3 This wonderful pic I did last year is like getting supper popular. And I thought I'll make another Shenzi Banzai. Epic fail BG I did here that I also edit from the movie here.... And guys seriously stop thinking there brother and sister it's starting getting annoying Comment plz
