Fan Art | A day with Mom and Dad by Bawfle Fan Art | A day with Mom and Dad by Bawfle
My first fan art piece featuring Sarabi, Simba, and Mufasa! 

I feel like this could be improved... I think it's the ground shading and background bareness that's bothering me the most... but if you have a suggestion, I'm all ears!

I'll most likely edit this piece after/if improvement suggestions are made!

Who should I include in my next fan art piece?!



Update: Added more grass to make the piece look fuller

This is a very beautiful image, from the vibrant colors of Mufasa and Simba to the beautiful backgrounds (how do you do rocks so well???). The expressions are spot on, they look like both something that fits the character's personality, and are well-executed as far as anatomy and proportion. I like how the shading was done here, It isn't super soft shading, but it also isn't super hard and crisp shading. It's the perfect middle- ground. The proportions of the characters are pretty perfect, however, Mufasa seems much taller than Sarabi. I think that was intentional though, as her head is down, for one, and for two, Mufasa is just a really big lion dude XD The only thing I would have liked to see a little more of was the background, like the grass and clouds mostly. But all artists know that backgrounds can be a pain. Regardless, it still is a very beautiful and adorable picture. I hope to see more great works like this in the future! :love:

Ahhh this is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Sarabi, Mufasa, and Simba looked like they just walked out of the movie! The colors are simply gorgeous, the background and grass, especially, are so well done, and their facial expressions are perfect! You can really see how noble and stoic Mufasa is, how caring and loving Sarabi is, and how playfu land happy Simba is just from his expression!! My only minor complaint is that Sarabi's head and neck look really... small. It might just be me, and if that was the intention, feel free to ignore!! :D It's just something I've noticed.

Aside from that, this piece is gorgeous!!! I love it!!! :D

This looks so great!! Damn you really nailed them all so well. As for background ideas I'd say maybe a savanna setting, with all the grass, acacia trees, etc. Maybe that one volcano that's featured in the beginning of the movie (the image of the elephants walking to Pride Rock). Some birbs flying around would be neat too c:

As for more fanart ideas... Since it's almost   d r a g o n   t i m e   I'd say maybe the HTTYD series' Toothless c:

YOU CAN KISS THEIR BEANS ALL YOU WANT BB

And I was thinking that too, I tried it as well but it just looked too much!D:

I think something as GLORIOUS as pride rock would have to be more up close or in a drawing with more land showing!

I'll be looking into trying to add things into the background as soon as I'm able to- I really want to give this piece all the best it can get before moving onto more fan art :D

I think I'll DEFINITELY have to try a chilling scene

I think this turned out really well. I am absolutely enthralled by Sarabi in general, and the way you drew her- the pose, the shading, etc, looks absolutely stunning. You definitely did the characters and movie itself justice. I think it'd be a really neat idea if you drew fanart for the Balto movie franchise, and I, personally, would love to see Kate & Humphrey from Alpha & Omega in your style. TL;DR, you did the franchise itself justice and the finished piece looks gorgeous!
