Spring Time In The Pridelands by LanieJ Spring Time In The Pridelands by LanieJ
Sorry for the lame title, but AHMYGOSH!!! I LOVE THIS!!! It came out SO GOOD!! :XD: This is a commission for :iconfrosstbutt:, of her flipping handsome-as-heck character, Kujo!! He's her version of Kovu and Kiara's son. I am seriously SO happy with this. Now, I'm no professional in African field biology, so I don't know how spring works over there. I just made it spring-y because I can. Anyway, I hate to be so proud of myself, but I seriously think this is one of my best pictures yet. I hard-core referenced a TLK screenshot for the background, which might be why. :XD: ESPECIALLY the tree and rocks. But anyway, I'm super happy with this, enjoy, so on and so forth. :D

Drawn by mouse!

When I first saw the preview to this work, I thought for a moment that it was TLK-Ileana's! :la: You have all the rights to be proud, because it's awesome! <3 Just love the colors here and the contrast of light and shadow parts. The lion fits the BG perfectly. =D

Keep improving, pal! :thumbsup:

It did come out amazingly Lanie. xD I LOVE your backgrounds, and this is no exception. I love the way you did the rocks, especially the one in the foreground. :) And I love the composition - the tree over the entire pic really brings it all together.

Plus ... Kujo is always much win. :heart:

Ohhh my gosh, how I managed to let this sit in my inbox for this long I will never know!! Haha I saw it this morning but had to rush out for a lecture, but coming home and knowing I can just stare at this is wonderful!

Where on earth do I begin Lanie?! The whole thing is such a beautiful piece, I really adore how Kujo looks in this one, very regal and yet proud :D It fits so perfectly with his story, its like he's just realising how exciting life can be and what a difference he can make. Its the most amazing feeling when other artists draw your characters so on point, and you really did this for me ^u^ Ahhh the background as well, just fits so gloriously! Thank you so much, let me die in happiness now :XD:

You did a great job on the background! I love how you mixed the colors on the rocks and the ground. In Africa there are only two seasons, the rainy and the dry season. Each appears usually twice a year. ;)
