Simba from movie and play by Aureawolf Simba from movie and play by Aureawolf
Simba as he appears in the Disney movie and as he looks in the Broadway play version. Drew this a few days before I took my mom to see the play version. ^_^ She loved it.

Anyway, the face on Simba (Disney version) is totally copied. Like, traced from a screenshot. Parts of his mane, and his total body are all freehanded by me. Same thing for Broadway Simba, who I just looked at references to try and get the costume right.

I hate tracing. I despise it. The only reason I did that for Simba's face here is because I was on a time limit, and had to finish this picture by a certain time. So you can see how very copied that part of the picture is, here's a link to the screenshot. [link]

On the plus side, yay for starry backgrounds. ^_~

Brilliant! I have the Broadway soundtrack to The Lion King, but, as much as I'd like to, I'm too poor to actually go to Broadway!:tears: Anyway, this really is a wonderful picture. Good job! :painter::trophy:

I saw TLKoB a few years ago. I loved it! It was the first (and, so far, only) show on broadway I've ever seen! This picture is very well done! :D

Just for the record, I have a plush based on the adult Simba costume! ;)

Hehe, they were selling those plushes at the show we just went to, but I didn't get one. I'm wishing now that I had. ^_^ Glad you liked the pic though!
