Here Comes The Sun (Redone) by NostalgicChills Here Comes The Sun (Redone) by NostalgicChills
A tiny break from my Bleh comic, it was really quickly done and I'll get right back to finishing the comic.
I really wanted to try some lighting techniques, but I couldn't be bothered to start a new picture, so I fixed up an old one. This was originally a gift picture for my dA friend :iconpurpleink777: but I have only recently found out that she deactivated her account :(
I'm hoping she just moved or taking a hiatus, but I haven't heard from her in a while. I hope she's well. 

This was the original: Here Comes The Sun (Gift For PurpleInk777) by NostalgicChills

The Lion King (c) Disney

Simba's muzzle should be a little bit shorter.

Beautiful picture, though.

You can definitely see the style changes really well here....I really like the sun's rays and how they kind of give Simba this halo effect. I also ADORE the shadows as well.

I pulled up the two pictures, the old and the newer one, up next to each other and flipped between them to compare the two. . . and oh my goodness your art has improved so much since then!! :D congratulations on your hard work, dude!! :D :iconletmehugyouplz:

I used to watch someone who doesn't seemed to be active anymore. I was hoping she might come back, just to see if she might be ready to talk too. I couldn't tell if she either just had a hiatus, died, or she just quits DA without deactivating her account. So I decided to just stop watching her. Not because she did something bad or find her artwork like garbage, I just decided to not watch her anymore, since nothing special is going on anymore. But I again, I've watched her just to see she might be talked to, see new artwork, and something more probably interesting.

It's very beautiful. The sun in the back, Simba's calm look. Everything about it is lovely

I recently made her this gift. Details about her leaving are in the comments. If you'd like to keep in touch with her, I'll let her know and she can pass along her email to you. :)
I'm sad that she's left. :(

Great redraw, by the way! :love: Simba looks amazing! And the lighting is really, really great! I think that's one thing I love about all your art so much is that you have a knack for what colors to use to set the mood (and give a genuine feel for the lighting). :clap: Good job!

I'm sad she left too, she was one of my first dA friends and she really encouraged me to improve! :(

Thank you so much! :heart: I got a little help from a lighting and shading YouTube art tutorial by Aaron Blaise, he was one of the animators (or supervising animators) behind The Lion King and other Disney films! www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ5ulF…

Awww! :hug: She touched a lot of people's lives in a very positive way while she was here. I'm glad she did that for you! :aww: I'll miss her a lot. :(

You're welcome! That's an AWESOME tutorial! Thanks for sharing! :la:

I definitely see the improvement. :) The lighting looks much better and even the grass looks more realistic.

That is very sad. But It I'm sure somewhere she's appreciating this fine piece of work whether she is logged in or not. 😉
