Well now, the lion pride of Magadi Lake is composed of six lionesses, but it wasn't quite complete yet, was it. Now it is!
I know, I know, look who it is.
I'll let you guys say this once on this page and then never again, so speak now or forever hold your peace:
"It's (insert name of every male lion from the entire TLK franchise)!"
Yes. Yes it is. Clearly.
Now go back to reading the story. :)

Enjoy!

(Disclaimer for other watchers: do not confuse this rating with technical drawing/rendering skill)

Is there a reason why, when the lion was shown for the first time, that he is shown lying down?
my sense of spacial awareness reading this page is confused due to the way its been story-boarded.

he seems awfully close to the group. its not wrong but it feels off. Having him strutting toward the viewer might have been better,
or if it were possible, after the panel with the "now now, neith" dialogue bubble, you could have had an establishing shot of the lioness looking at the lion and showing where he came from and then do a close up with him speaking the words in the last panel.

good examples of what i'm talking about is pg 121 and 122, you have establishing shots for where the lioness's are for those two pages before going into the close ups. it should be the same for this page as u are introducing a new character.
What do you think?

Neith - if that's her name - can't possibly be dumb enough if she claims that she can recognize that mug everywhere yet makes such a stupid mistake XD talk about assuming that all leopards are the same. goodness, what's up with Chui and his whole "i'm hexed! don't touch me!" aura around him? it got to even the lions?? i'm awfully curious.

Also.. why does that brown lioness on the right in the first panel remind me of the big lady in Aladdin that said "Still I think he's RATHER tasty"  x'DD
I don't know why.. I'm just staring at her expression and for some reason that came to mind, she's got some big puppy-dog eyes on her though, cute  x3

Oh my, that is one thick boy..  x'D
It's interesting they can't tell Africa and Chui apart though.. or maybe that's not the problem here, perhaps they're just using that as an excuse to get something they want? No matter how I look at this a lion can't be THAT dumb, surely they realize that this isn't who they're clamming Africa to be, for multiple reasons...

Although to be honest, Africa and Chui did have a physical confrontation not too long ago, I can imagine his scent is still on her.. so perhaps it might make sense if they're going by smell alone, and I doubt lions would know much about different species and their behaviors.. but Africa is clearly a girl no? Unless they never heard or seen Chui themselves before and just heard about him from other animals, but then that'd make no sense given Africa has stated before that Chui wouldn't want to have lived there, for reasons unknown to her until now.

I don’t think they look like Lion King characters because you have a very unique style. Plus, that one brown lioness has this look on her face like she is happy. Of that trio, is she going to be the happy, nice one?

…Seriously? They can't tell that she isn't Chui?! I mean, come on! They couldn't even tell, from her scent or even her own voice, that she's a female?! Her spot patterns aren't even the same or anywhere near similar to Chui! Not only that, males don't take care of their cubs or even help in any way to raise them, since they leave the females to do all the work. Did they even know/remember that Chui wore a collar, or some form of tracker on his neck?

lemurkat Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I wondered that too then I thought maybe the tracker came after he encountered the lions. However the scent and voice thing... Yeh,  I find it hard to believe they're not going "wait this is a female leopard", in fact it's the only thing that really bugs me about this. Also what's happened to the cubs?  I need to know!

I have to say that while your drawing style for lions takes some getting used to, it's really great! I love the more predatory look they have, with stocky build and longer muzzles. Neith is one kick ass lioness! :D

So for lions it's a matter of personal revenge instead of just chasing a rival predator out of their territory as I initially thought. Too bad for Africa, though, it seems that Chui managed to make Magadi Lake a bad place for any leopards at all, not to mention the lions' 'bite first, ask questions later' policy. ;)

Thank you so much! The style started off too exaggerated so I tuned it down a bit XD

That's correct! More will be explained soon, but the lions aren't inherently stupid (aside from Bes. He's really quite dumb XD), and some of them will take advantage of Bes' stupidity to get what they want... ;)

i have a prediction on how the rest of the comic may play out. perhaps once Africa convinces the loins she is not Chui (she's a female with cubs and Chui most certainly isn't) she might tell them where Chui actually is and get her territory back? also the eyes in the pit from the last page might be lion cubs.
