You perfectly nailed what Mufasa would look like as a cub. It’s just fantastic!

Oh lol, ok I see it. Simba’s thick eyebrows made me think it was Muffy though. I personally think that’s exactly what he would look like as a cub, but that’s just me. Either way great work :D

Kopa’s not canon so he’s not here

Then I suggest you look for a book called The Lion King: Six New Adventures and Kopa appears in it ...

Oh I’m aware of them but they aren’t part of the lion king canon, the publisher just had disney’s Permission to use the Lion King, they’re basically published fanfictions. Only Kion and Kiara are official children of Simba and Nala

these are wonderful and remind me so much more of the original movies than the new animated series done. Your represented style would have been lovely to see on the show.

I noticed the size is 2268x1994, Lion King came out in 1994.
Also, I LOVE how adorable they are

It's not right that you have put your watermark over copyrighted characters drawn in the style of the original creators (and yes it is VERY obvious that those cubs are Kion, Simba, Kiara, and Nala). You may have drawn the picture but you have no right to throw your watermark over copyrighted characters. I also notice you are very unoriginal in your artwork and draw fan characters in the exact style of the shows they are based off and yet claim that people steal your art. If anyone is stealing anything my dear it is you. It is fine to draw in a similar style to another person's when you are learning but you have to grow out of it at some point and find your own style. You are beyond skilled in drawing and it shows when you draw fan characters in various poses and even when you draw backgrounds. You have amazing talent that much is very clear and is even more reason why you should develop your own style, your own characters (not fan characters), and flourish. Don't remain stuck in one place by constantly drawing fan characters in the styles of the world they are based off. Be more original and lastly. Only watermark your own ORIGINAL content and characters (whether completely made up off the top of your head or fan-made).

The fact they can mimic the style so well means they would do great working for the company the characters came from. Even if it's not Lion King related. Do you know how many production studios make their artists do many different styles? If you want to become a professional animator specifically you must be well versed in plenty of different styles. Even with World of Warcraft you have to have your style similar to the original. There isn't one specific modeler for WOW.
A lot of people watermark their work. Consider it as recognizing the artist, because that's what they are for. They aren't for pissing on your work and saying "MINE". They are there to tell the difference of WHO DREW IT. NOT, WHO OWNS IT.
Check yourself. (:

Another thing, the lion king has such a customized style that if you didn't draw Simba in it he'd be basically unrecognizable.
Honestly if you are flexible in your style then you are accomplished as an artist.

"You have amazing talent and are beyond skilled at drawing fan characters and backgrounds but stop it"

a shame you think creating only fan art won't let you flourish when doing exactly this kind of thing is what got me my studio job in animation

The whole point of my comment was that you put YOUR watermark over copyrighted characters that DON'T belong to you yet you go and complain about others who steal artwork.. By placing your watermark over copyrighted characters that belong to Disney you are doing the exact same thing. You are claiming the characters as your own when you put YOUR watermark over DISNEY'S property. THAT is the point I was trying to make.

You sound exactly like a twat that I had the displeasure of encountering on Tumblr. And they cried and bawwed about how I'm supposed to ask a company to paint their public domain content.
