Look at this pretty lady... I really like this one. She's a quiet one.
This is Tau's mom, and Asad's mate! Her name means "honey" in Arabic, which I think is perfect.
She has a very different design. I like it. :XD: I adopted her from this batch of adoptables:
I made quite a few changes. ^^; I decided to get rid of the brown on her cheeks, and decided on no hair tuft. I also gave her some varying colors around her eyes and on her muzzle/belly/chest. Lastly, I changed her ears a little and tweaked her colors a bit to match better with my other characters.

Some characteristics to note:
1. Pretend Nala and Sarabi were related and had a sister. That would be this lionesses body type. :XD: She has a muscular body like Nala, but a head and hip shape similar to Sarabi
2. Her ears are SMALL and ROUND. Like little teddy bear ears.
3. She has very short hair, so minimal fluff should be drawn.
4. Pay close attention to her inner leg coloring and outer ear coloring. It's pretty unique and pretty specific. :XD:
5. Her irises have a DARK BROWN OUTLINE. Please don't line them with a darker shade of orange. I will smite you. :XD:

Anyway... BACK TO COMMISSIONS! I've got this new mouse DOWN.

She looks so much like Luca!

Just a question: Are they related in any way?

Thank you! And hah! They do, huh? They aren't related, but they ARE from the same area.

She's really beautiful and graceful -- fit for a queen! I adore her color scheme as well. I have a feeling that I will enjoy her as I read your comic.
