Shenzi VS AWDs by DJ88 Shenzi VS AWDs by DJ88

Spur of the moment art 8)
I had National Geographic : Predators At War some time ago and remembered a scene where alot of African Wild Dogs attacked a lone hyena because it was getting too close to their den. Also I wanted to try for a tlk-ish design for the AWDs. So I decided to draw this, Shenzi ventured off and is getting ambushed by a pack of AWDs. Or she attacked them, either way. And Rob Zombie is awesome to listen to whilst drawing this ;)

enjoy!

And yes I reffed Shenzi's face from a screen grab, no I did not trace it. I traced nothing here except my own sketches.

AWD: You made a big mistake comin' on our turf, hyena!

Shenzi: Back off! I ain't wastin' my time with you! I gotta hunt for my clan!

I love both hyenas and African wild dogs. I personally like hyenas more and would even be one. One wild dog wouldn't take on a single hyena, but they can outnumber the lone hyena.

If that was Niju, Roscoe, Desoto, Buster, Steele, Charlie, Einstein, Balto or Humpfrey I would run if I were Shenzi (wolves and alstatians can go toe to toe with hyenas, and dobermans and great danes can beat them) ... i think. Worse if they are together

I like the Lion-King-esque drawing style you use!
Oh man they don't look happy to see each other! xD
I also love the other AWDs coming from the background, that was a nice touch. 
I wonder who ends up running away... xD

I love how she is strong and beautiful even though Disney tried to make her 'ugly'.
She is way more beautiful than all the lionesses, to me.
And I just love this pic :D

Awesome!! There should be more art of the African Wild Dog from everyone, and this is a good example! I've done AWDs too, but this is totally epic! Someone should do a pack of AWDs hunting a wildebeest or something, cause these canines are truly unique!!!!!
