Hello there. This is Miss Devinital on my second account on DA reserved exclusively for "the Lion King" animated based work. You'll find plenty of fiction, comics and ideas surrounding it so feel free to explore for those wanting my main account that has more variety, here is the link: https://www.deviantart.com/devinital
Please note this account is for TLK fan art and the like. I DO NOT take requests, commissions, trades, collabs, etc. on this account. That is reserved for my main account. If your interested in any of these options, go there to find when and what I'm open to.
So here's the thing. I decided to do another one of the TLK art challenges, this one to be exact:
I realized that as I was doing the 'Shetani' entry that the design came out very similar to your picture here.
It's not the exact same design, for one the colors are slightly different and I left out the ear rims. I basically tried to make her look like an alternate universe Vitani, with elements from that weird blue-eyed, grey-striped version of Zira, but I realized that there were way more then one similarities to your design. I just felt I should let you know since she is very similar to Ahava here and I do feel I should credit you since clearly I was inspired from your picture.
In any case, I did want to get your opinion on this. I can send you an early picture of what I've done so far if you like and I do fully plan to credit your for inspiring me in the description, though if there's anything you'd like to add or say about this then I am more then willing to adjust.
Its fine. No worries. I don't OWN the the colors or all of the design elements and working in the fandom people are likely to come to similar conclusions or get inspired by others. Lord knows it happens to me. That and even though I put copyright stuff in disclaimers that's more to stop dumb kids and art thieves then to prevent artists getting inspired. So don't let me stop you and do what you'd like and don't worry about credit, giving me a heads up is enough. Do what you will and enjoy.
