Day 12: Land of Kings
Twelfth drawing for 19 Days of Lion King.

I enjoyed the colours a lot and just how everything came together. One more week to go!!

*Impending cover for my LK Fanfic of the same name.

I'm having an issue with uploading due to an error that DA sends me. It will get to 100%, but the error will still not allow me to upload. Shame. :( 
Day 10: Not a Good Idea
Tenth drawing for 19 Days of Lion King.

I had so much fun with this one. So expressive and it allowed me to see how lines can be pushed or squished to create such animated expressions.

KH3 was leaked heavily a month before it was out. When I uploaded my Xion picture, it got attacked by a leaker for some crazy reason. The account is deleted now. No surprise there. I checked the comments just now, after having hid them due to spoilers. I haven't beaten the game yet but, at this point, I just don't even care anymore. But the vehemence that day from this person was just unreal. I'll never understand the joy of spoiling something for someone but then again - evil lol :/

I'm currently on the last Disney world right now and I must say, from everything that I've heard, there are a lot of people not happy with how things turned out. How everything was kept until the very end. There was no middle action. One thing I will say -- I have enjoyed my playthrough of it. It was a blast to play through in a way that the Disney worlds were not in KH2. With that said, the Disney worlds are *NOT* the main story of Kingdom Hearts -- and they never were. Period. The meat of the story is its original characters, that has weaved in and out of 8 games, all telling a single, gripping narrative. I have never cried so much over fictional characters in a long time. Heading to the end - the finale of the series, of course I had expectations. Anyone that goes through a series to the end is going to have expectations. 

Return of the King was built up from Two Towers and Fellowship of the Ring. There was expectations of a final battle, the war of the Ring coming to an end, but how exactly? KH3 felt like that for me going in. How would Xehanort be defeated? What would the final clash be like? Would my favorite trio have a happy ending?

There was a scene from each trio mirroring each other: when Kairi sneaked up on Sora on the beach. Roxas does the same thing to Axel and Aqua does the same thing to Ventus. I thought very long and hard about what that could mean and I surmised this: that each of those characters represents a type of love: Sora/Kairi: Romantic Axel/Roxas: Brotherly and Aqua/Ventus: Familial 
I then attributed those types throughout the rest of the trios -- and it fits. Romantic: Roxas/Xion and Terra/Aqua Brotherly: Riku/Sora and Terra/Ventus and Familial: Riku/Kairi and Axel/Xion 

I went in with that in mind. But what I've heard sounds like a gutting and a betrayal to me. I still need to see the scenes in context but I'm not hearing too much about my favorite trio. But I *am* hearing a lot about others and just how things don't feel right. Something feels off -- and yes, it certainly does. The Disney worlds are fun and all but lacking substance. I never expected much though in regards to the Disney worlds; the meat of the story makes up for that. But yet, the main story -- the actual story that matters -- feels like it's taken a back seat to Disney marketing. :(
