Saved At The Last Second by LanieJ Saved At The Last Second by LanieJ
WHOO!! I LOVE how this came out!!! This is another commission for the lovely and wonderful :iconchinesefightinmuffin:!! These are her characters Malekai (Male lion savior :XD:), Sohta (little lion cub) with appearances by :icontwitterlu: and... two random hyenas. HEY, speaking of which, this is the first time I've EVER drawn hyenas. I'm not super happy with them, but I like them. :D
So, this is a picture depicting a scene at the end of THIS [link] part of an awesome story by the one and only =ChineseFightinMuffin, herself!
She wanted this set in the gorge from The Lion King, so I did a lot of referencing to get it right. I don't have specific shots to site, though. Just trust me. :XD:
This was seriously so much fun. I tried to play with lighting so each character is highlighted. I think I failed a little, though. That POSING. So, this is my first "new" artwork since I've cracked down on studying. Can you see any differences anatomically? I sure can. :XD: I'm still not that great, but I'm improving!
Look how far I've come in less than a year! (similar posing/expression)

I really hope you like this, lady! Can't wait to work on the next one!! :D

Image use, Malekai and Sohta :iconchinesefightinmuffin:

Yeah, sorry about those prices. I know they're a little steep, but a girl's gotta make money somehow, right? 

Wow... that sounded way dirtier than it needed to. :XD:

And I don't do it for my main source of income. It's more for padding, like if I'm a little short on payments, I have this money to fall back on, basically!

The lion who is attacking looks a bit like Nuka from TLK 2.

*gasp* This is so epic. O.O Malekai looks awesome, you put a lot of awesome movement and detail into him. :3 And those hyenas look great! And oh my goodness, Twitterlu and Sohta look so cool! I love how small and cute Sohta is, and it's awesome to see my Twitterlu in your style. :) Her hair looks great! And I love the tail between the legs. :3

Really great job ma'am! Thank you. :D

I like how she drew Twitter too, because Twitter has no idea who Malekai is at that point and he is one baddass looking evil lion so friend or foe Twitter?
