As Sure As Sun Turns To Moon

Kala: As sure as sun turns to moon will I love you
Kerchack: And I will be there to answer your call
Kala: You will?
Kerchack: I will
Kala: You really will?
Kerchack: I swear I will

Absolutely love that song. I did this sketch [link] way back at the begining of summer (long before I heard the song). Upon hearing the song, that seemed like a natural title. I love how Kerchack turned out, but Kala's been bugging the whole time I worked on this. Her lineart was a *****. I had to redo it 3 times, and I'm still not satisfied. This will do for now, someday I may go back and try again...

The background
This went through a lot of transformation. When I first started colouring it, I thought of doing just a jungle background. Also toyed with the idea of making a frame made out of flowers and vines, possibly heart-shaped (oh shush, so what if that's corny). So when I finally started the background... the jungle idea didn't work out. The more I worked on it, the worse it got. I was almost tempted to just "borrow" from a screencap, but that would be cheating. So I played around with the gradient tool and had a green-blue, plain-Jane (woot!) background. Then it hit me. When I regained consciousness, I thought "Hey, why not have the Sun and the Moon?" Apparently this sketch induces cheesy ideas... So I played around, learned some new things about photoshop, and there is the final background.

Fun Fact #1 - There is a hidden Mickey in there, be the first to spot it and you get a cookie!
Fun Fact #2 - The flower, while nothing special, was inspired by one of the flowers in my Tarzan display... pics of that to come eventually.
Fun Fact #3 - I actually have no cookies for the winner, the frog on my desk ate them all...

Well, that's probably the longest description I've done. So, long story short... Yay Tarzan fanart!

Loved the song too. At least you learned some new stuff about Photoshop. I have to say that the flower on Kala looks the most like a hidden Mickey to me.

I heard the song before and it's sweet.
I really wished that they showed more of Kerchak being kind and sweet, as well as making him have a less fatal wound without dying in the end.

Could not agree with you more!

Yeah, I would love to have seen Kerchak become accepting towards the Porters and give consent to have Tarzan marry Jane.

That's one thing I love about the broadway.... especially No Other Way. They really expand his character and show that he is a good guy... but he has to do what's best for the family, even if he doesn't like it.
