Samula...sorry for the boring topics..i just need to draw her..she has been in my head for 4 weeks and now i can finally draw her..so be ready for loads of drawings of her..both boring and more interesting
Ahadi as a cub with his mother. They belong to a small pride, and non of them are royal. The mother of him always dreamed about being one of the lionesses in the Pride Lands, and Ahadi loved his mother and from the very beginning he was determent to try being the future king of Pride Lands.
Please full view, DA's thumbnail does strange things.
Couple people are interested in his backstory, so here's what I got from
"So basically Zuri (the lion above) loved this lioness (Hope) who was the leader's daughter, but then she went missing for almost a year, and the leader had sent countless search parties, but no one could find her, so one day Zuri gets a small group of his friends together in a last effort to find her. Along the way he learns that Faith, Hope's sister, snuck along with them because she secretly loves Zuri and didnt want anything to happen to him.
Eventually they find Hope, and it turns out she ran away with a rival pride's male. Zuri is crushed when he finds out she has cubs as well, but then Faith makes him feel better, and they end up falling in love..."
It had been a year since Johnny had finally built up the courage to tell Lanie how he'd felt. Granted, it had been less of a romantic declaration and more of a vomiting of words, but he'd at least gotten it out there without scaring her away. It felt like so long ago. The sun was approaching the horizon and a gentle breeze was stirring the grass. The wind wasn't loud enough to mask the attempt at a stealthy approach behind him, however. Rather than give away the fact that it was quite easy to hear her, as she was practically stomping, Johnny let Lanie think she was the mighty huntress she thought she was. He braced himself just in time for the impact.
"HAH! Gotcha!" Lanie sat triumphantly on Johnny's back for a moment before flopping over next to him. He let out a deep chuckle and rolled his eyes. "Yeah, yeah. I'll get you back when you least expect it," he said with a smirk. Lanie smiled happily and rolled on to her back, puffing out her belly expectantly. With a heavy sigh, Johnny unsheathed his claws and gave her a few scratches. She giggled before rolling back on to her stomach. She leaned over, licked his cheek and stood up. "Come with me, I want to show you something," she said softly. Without a word, Johnny quickly got up and followed her. It didn't take him long to realize she was leading him towards the jungle. "The jungle?" Johnny asked curiously as the remaining daylight filtered through the first lines of jungle trees. "What do you have to show me in here?" Lanie rolled her eyes, but said nothing, and continued padding along the spongy ground. As their surroundings darkened, Johnny drew closer to Lanie's side, keeping an eye out for any signs of danger. Lanie finally spoke up in almost a whisper, "We're almost there." The ground became more difficult to walk on as the jungle thickened. Suddenly she stopped. Johnny looked around, "What is it?" Lanie turned to him with a wide smile. "We're not there just yet, but do you realize where we are?" With a furrowed brow, Johnny once again scanned his surroundings and frowned. He shook his head slowly, hoping not to get smacked in the face for apparently forgetting this location. Lanie laughed. "Wow, you really suck at remembering places. I'll give you a hint." She leaned forward and pressed the top of her head to his chin. She then withdrew and took a few steps back. With a smirk she whispered "I love you, too." Johnny almost wanted to smack himself. "Aw man, I really am an idiot... This is the spot, isn't it? It looks so different," he mumbled. "Come on, you goof," Lanie said playfully. She pranced off and Johnny quickly stumbled after her. They suddenly broke through the trees and found themselves on a large grassy cliff overlooking the rest of the jungle. Johnny's mouth fell open in surprise. The sight was completely breathtaking. He turned to look at Lanie, who was already looking at him happily, clearly proud of her discovery. "I came out here yesterday... I like to visit that spot because it always makes me feel happy," She paused a moment before continuing, "Usually I turn back around, but something compelled me to walk a little further, and that's when I found this place... It's beautiful, isn't it?" Something about the way the light was hitting her made Lanie look almost angelic. Johnny only barely managed a nod. Lanie's eyes narrowed and a purr rumbled from her voice as she spoke again, "You really have gone soft, haven't you?" Johnny blinked, quickly trying regain composure. "I... um... Sorry, it's just... uh," Lanie sighed and finished her thought with a half-smile, "Anyway, I wanted to bring you out here... It's been a whole year, Johnny. I wanted it to be special." Johnny decided words weren't working in his favor tonight, so he quickly wrapped one of his big paws around her back and pulled her close to him. The light was fading fast from the sky, leaving them in a deep purple haze. "I love you so much, Lanie. I want you to know that... You know I suck when it comes to telling you how I feel, but I..." "I know," Lanie said gently, "I love you, too. I couldn't imagine my life with anyone else." She pulled away, a coy smile tugging at the corners of her mouth. "We're going to have a good life together, you and me." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IT'S LANIE AND JOHNNY! I miss these guys. This is the last story I'm going to write for these two before the comic. And just a heads up, Lanie and Johnny aren't going to appear until Chapter 2, BUT Chapter 1 is basically just a backstory comic. I'm super excited, though. The script is about halfway done, and I've started sketching pages out. We'll see how quickly I can get these preliminary things done.
So yes, Johnny does go a bit soft. What did you expect? He's still a brat even years later, but because he finally has someone to love who loves him back, he doesn't feel quite as strongly that he needs to prove himself or get attention, hence the soft side coming out more often.
Anyway, I thought it might be nice to break up the speed paints and ref sheets with a decent picture. Plus, every lion couple needs their own "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" picture, right?
Look at that big ole' softie... He's a cutie. So, ANOTHER character... I'll be doing a few of these while I break in my new MOUSE. Sorry if there are any horrendous mistakes. This mouse is very sensitive.
Anyway, have an Asad! He's Tau's father and the king of the jungle, yo.
A few characteristics to take note of: 1. He has a bobbed tail. 2. He has BIG ears. They're perky, though. Not floppy like scar's. They're more like big kitty ears. 3. He has a short, muscular build and a BIG scraggy mane. (Three colors total in the mane.) 4. His nose fade color is the same as his inner ear. 5. His mane covers his entire belly. See this picture ([link]) for reference. Oh, Johnny...
Cool. I'll do Shahed, next. Her name means "honey", if that gives you any clues as to what she looks like. Oh, and another lioness is introduced, here! She isn't mentioned in Tau's family because she lives in a different pride, and he doesn't know her.
Some gift art for , of her VERY handsome Kiroho!! He's her version of Scar and Nala's son, and I love him to bits! I've been wanting to draw this guys every since I saw saw him! And Yuriko's always been so nice and so fun to talk to, I just had to do a little something!!
I'm REALLY happy with how this came out. This whole "drawing a picture every day" thing has been doing wonders for me. I think I've already improved in 16 days more than I have in a few months!
NO you may NOT use this image for basing,copying,tracing,altering,RPing, personal character pictures, commercial use, re-uploading, blah blah BLAH ETC.....
Nala and Mheetu having a sibling rivalry moment over who can successfully take down a wildebeest out of the two, Sarafina (their mother, for those not in the "know") just smiles and waits for the show.
This is of-course a "if only" image. If only Mheetu was in the films, and If only he would have made it to be a fully grown adult.
Also just wanted to compare the three as adults in one image.
I don't really have a theory as to what happened to him, my guess, is that he was either banished or killed during Scar's rule, or he escaped.
That's my design for adult Mheetu btw, it's not official.
I just needed to draw, I was fairly depressed, and i had been wanting to do this kind of image for a few days, so why not eh?
