My Bio
:wave: Hello!
Lil Badge - Zodiac .:Gemini:. by Kohaku0827 Do Not Repost Button by Mel-Rosey Badge: Animal Lover by Emotikonz

You can call me Nala. :aww: A little about me... I've been drawing my whole life. I started doing digital art in 2007, (posting on this site: fanart.lionking.org/Artists/Na… ) and have been learning lots of new techniques, experimenting and striving to improve my skills since 2006. When I'm not drawing, I'm writing. When I'm not doing either of those things, I'm working or relaxing. But sometimes I write and draw at the same time. It's called comic creating. :D

I started my first, full-scale Lion King comic in September 2010. The comic is called "Betrothed" and I dedicated it to a fellow artist and friend of mine who passed away just days before I posted my first page. :( RIP, Simbamarasa. :tears: I miss you.
On a happier note, my comic was a HUGE success (much bigger than I ever anticipated), and wrapped up in December 2012. BUT, it inspired a sequel, which began pre-production in July 2012 and is currently in actual production. The comic is called "Brothers". Check it out and let me know what you think. I recommend reading "Betrothed" first to have full enjoyment of its sequel, but it isn't entirely necessary.

When I'm not making art for myself or doing comics, I'm doing commissions, entering contests, and offering prizes and adoptables.

Thanks for visiting my page! :wave:

UPDATE: The contest is now closed and I'll start choosing names/announcing winners soon! Thanks so much to everyone who entered! :hug: --- I've got a lot of characters in my TLK fandom universe who are, at the moment, nameless!

Most info on it (including the DA account of the thief) is here: I learned this morning that this thief also has a Patreon account. :facepalm: They have 0 patrons right now, but it needs to stay that way and their stolen posts need to be reported to Patreon.

Hi Nala :D I have a question for you. (you don't have to answer if you don't want to :) )

How do you shade your pictures? Do you use an airbrush and then get to work, or do you have a different technique?
