Since the comic is primarily a sympathetic spin on Scar's story and his arguable madness, on the cover I wanted to capture him seeming dark but vulnerable. I liked the idea of a Lion King comic where we don't see the sunlit front of Pride Rock surrounded by animals, but one lone lion, hidden away in shadows at the back of it, disregarded by others, but leaning out and looking at the lands; hesitantly, fearfully, but somewhat hopefully, in a dark echo of true lion kings ascending Pride Rock for their first time.


For their kind provision of resources and advice on developing this style, a massive thank you to particularly to:

And everyone else who offered tips and suggestions on my development pictures, thank youuuu!
