Chow Down by TrusFanart Chow Down by TrusFanart
"Now wasn't it her mom who ate your dad?"
"
And having parents eaten makes us mad!"

I've been having a really stressful couple of weeks, so I wanted to do something just fun and relaxing, so I decided to do another re-draw of one of my old Lion King fan art pieces. It was one of my favorites when I did it originally and I love it more than ever now. It's based of The Lion King on Broadway song "Chow Down", more specifically the two line quoted above. 

I did try to make the hyenas, especially Banzai look younger here, that's why he has a little hair tuft and not the little whisps of hair on his head and chin.

The original image can be found here:
Chow Down(Old)
It was done back in July of 2009.

So as I mentioned, I have been under some stress, just to name a few:
-Our neighbors house caught fire two weeks ago, our nearly doing so. His oxygen tanks exploded because of the fire so having issues with any loud noises ><
-Might possibly be making a 500 mile move soon...Which scares the living daylights out me as the area I live in now is where I've lived my whole life
-To top it all off, my tablet ports died while in the middle of drawing this. My awesome fiance was kind enough to let me borrow his little tablet for the time being(though it is so small compared to me behemoth). I'm going to see if I can RMA mine or not. Commissions would be a big help though....just in case.

Art may come, but it will be slow. Commissions will have top priority. :3

Enjoy the art :3

In the song "Chow Down" from TLK on Broadway, Shenzi mentions that Nala's mother ate Banzai's father. This is an illustration of that event.

I remember this line from Broadway.  It's really tragic.  The death of their father turned them into monsters, monsters that were willing to slaughter two terrified cubs.

Ya, it's from the play, which many of the songs add a lot of new content to the TLK world, such as this. Poor Bonzai D:

I love this so much :love: I was so upset that there was nearly no drawing at all about Sarafina eating or killing Banzai's father, now we have a magnificent one =D
Chow Down is my favorite song from the Broadway version of TLK :heart:

Thank you so much! That means a lot to hear. I thought Chow Down was an awesome addition to the Lion King universe, along with the Madness of King Scar. I've been itching to re-draw this piece for quite some time and I am so glad I finally did.

Yeah, Madness of King Scar is an awesome song too ^^ even if Nala nearly got raped xDDD
Well I was going to draw it too ! But I felt more like drawing Banzai discovering his father's corpse the same way Simba did after Mufasa died x) problem is I've got a lot of ideas to draw but I'm sooo lazy I can't draw them... maybe someday 8D

Thank you so much hun. I means a lot to hear that coming from an outside source. I look at my art and I know I can see it, but when others say that they can as well, it really validates all the time and effort I have spent over the years forcing myself to improve.
