A walk in the lands by Kara-Kiwi A walk in the lands by Kara-Kiwi

Heres my version of kovu and kiaras cubs and they are taking a lovely stroll through the pridelands with their parents :)

 Edit: I was originally going to name the cubs Chaka and Shani like kiaras and her brothers pre-productions names but I decided it would be more fitting if they named the girl Upendi and for the boy either Raha or Imani- the swahili words for peace and love cuz kiara was kind of a hippy XD

Kiara has no gradient upon her nose. Otherwise that's perfect.

In MY OPINION Kiara was not fully grown at the end of simbas pride- more like a teenager.  I like the idea of her having a nose gradient like her mom when she is fully grown since she takes so much of her color from simba. Either way as an artist i am allowed to take those artistic liberties so its actually pretty rude for you to point that out like that.

I didn't mean to be rude, by the way if you can't handle a little comment like this then explain your choices in a comment or don't change a canon character.
And yeah, now I understand why you did that. So just explain things and you'll see that it's easier for people to understand "YOUR OPINION" then. I really love your art and it was just a little comment because this edit strikes me and so I thought I would point that out just in case. Also you're right, to me Kiara is only a teen too at the end of the movie so as I have the same opinion on this, I understand why you edited her design.
Keep up the good work anyway~

I have explained my reasons in other drawings so i dont feel i have to do that in every drawing i do of her. I feel it was pretty obvious that she is older here so a simple nose gradient shouldnt need to be explained anyways. Its like when people give simba gray in his mane or "wrinkles" because hes older. Does the artist really need to explain why they did that because it was not his canon design in the movies? No i think not. The way you stated your comment came off as you were only pointing out what i did wrong in your eyes. I have no problem with explaining my reasoning in nicer way when the question is asked nicely. There is a difference between " Kiara didnt have a nose gradient." and "Oh you gave Kiara a nose gradient, Im curious why you did that?" Do you see the difference there? Maybe you should explain YOUR opinions better and i wouldnt have been so deffensive.

Yeah but wrinkles + grey in the mane/hair = old age. A gradient isn't an universal way of stating that a character is older. And I may don't have all my day just to look at your gallery and see if yes or no you explained things.
Also, I still claimed that your drawing was "perfect" so please get over it. I don't know why you seem that irritated because seriously there's nothing mean here. I just said I saw you added a nose gradient, never said it was wrong or looking bad anyway.
And in MY opinion you do whatever you want, I don't care but I don't see why you sound so angry, seriously...
And btw the "Kiara didn't have a nose gradient" isn't obviously a bad remark but it's an affirmation. A true statement that can be verified so there's nothing rude here. I'm sorry miss but YOU're making it a rude conversation. :/
I didn't know you'd be that offensive...

Simba and Nala both only had gradients when they grew up so kiara having one could very easily be a way of saying shes older. I dont expect you to browse my gallery to look for explanations just like you cant expect me to explain my reasoning every drawing either.  Saying my drawing is perfect otherwise doesnt make the previous statement any less rude.  You might not have meant it to be rude but thats how it sounds.. I would never point out things i dont agree with to another artist unless asked. If I made comments like that i know i would get angry reactions, its just a pointless thing to point out. Her entire design here is different from the movie version so I obviously know she didnt have that in the movie so there is no need to affirm it either.  Im sorry for being mad but i just dont understand your need to even say it, thats all.

Yes you're right on this. :3
Ok so let's repeat this again : you thought it was rude. :)
I like to point out things sometimes because it's a way to help or to understand better the artist's point of view concerning their art. So I was kinda surprised of your reaction actually... ^^;

I probably could have worded my original reply in a nicer way as well and still get my point across so im sorry for that.... but again WORDING IS KEY if you must point out things when not asked to point things out. I have seen many people leave such comments only pointing out what was wrong or different and that can be incredibly hurtful to an artist who is trying to be unique and express their interpretation. If your original comment was worded in a tone that i could tell you were interesested in my point of view and not just point out what was changed this conversation would have went a much different direction.

Thanks! My drawings are set at 300 resolution and the lines are usually size 3 brush and then when im done i use the paint daubs filter or just sharpen the image which gives it a more crisp feel. Hope that helps ^^
