Rework the lighting; and this could be a scene from his return to the Pridelands. He sees the tree, remembers what happened. His resolve wavers for a brief moment. He knows what accusations await him when he returns.
Can you imagine Simba seeing this, approaching the tree, and lying under it? He kind of smiles to himself, and says "I miss you, Dad." You know its kind of like someones gravestone. Our loved ones visit them to quietly mourn and remember them.
Lovely work here, the lighting and shading are beautiful.
I bet the first time Simba returns to the gorge and sees the dead tree, he has thoughts of how small it looks now that he's grown up, compared to when he was a cub. I imagine it would have looked massive to him as a cub, especially when his dad was lying next to it. ):
Simba all like "wow, this one tree hasn't changed in years" and if this is after S.P, then the flood came and went without moving it so he's just straight up "oh come on, this is just taunting me now".
More serious comment wise, I think this is gorgeous, especially the lighting.
