both are amazing-  but i must say the lighting (you know like on his legs ) on the left one is much better and makes more sense ? (you know some seriously light yellow clouds are going on behind him so XD) but the shadows on the right are better - the shading on simbas face is deeper.  hmmm overall the two have different 'feelings' or styles and both work really well its very hard to pic a favourite! I think that you could easily adopt the best of both and merge them to go even further- but seriously both are absolutely phenomal powerful images very well done Squish Hug 2 -  The Eye Poke

I have to say that this is one of my all time favorite images of all time. I actually really want to purchase a large print and have it in my home, cred to you obviously. Great work, inspiring, and always what I think of when I think of my favorite movie!

I love Simba's face in the newer one. It's much rounder. I also like that you made Mufasa darker, instead of light like it was. Although, I do like the old mane. The way it's being blown up. But, the recolor of it is nice. The original looked a bit too......anime? I s'pose. Not sure that's the word i'm looking for. BUT! I love the peice! =))

I like them both. The left one has a more unified colour pallet, but the right one has a different feel to it from the different colours used.

I prefer the one on the right. There is more action and intensity with the cooler tones as opposed to the brightness on the other. In the one on the left, you can tell that the wind is blowing hard and it's a really meaningful and energetic scene. The one on the left is more soft and speaks more to a sad reminiscence whereas the one on the right is more passionate, raw and fresh. It's all about what you were going for I guess. C: Well done on both of them!

At first, I think what I liked about the older Simba one was that his mane was flying back more noticeably. But I love your newer version! I realized that I liked the older Simba one's tone, from how his mane is flying frantically backwards, like his past is trying to pull him back and he is resistant. But we all know in the end that it wasn't so much as a forceful pull, but of an embracing. Maybe that's why some may have loved your older one more, because it seems more apparent with the way his mane is drawn? Idk. In your new one, you were still able to capture the same tone with his mane, but now it feels more polished.

Awesome, thank you for the input^^ That would make sense about the mane, its more obvious its blowing back in the older one.

I saw this basically EVERYWHERE on my tumblr, the other week. Tried to figure out where I'd seen it before, but I just couldn't find it anywhere! And people on tumblr never really tell where they get things from, so no credit there. But now I remember! (I would be worried if I didn't, since it's right in front of me).
Such lovely colors. It would so fit on my wall :D

I see it allover the internet XD Its kinda flattering really. I should have put a watermark on it knowing it was gonna be everywhere when i updated it so people would know, your welcome to print it out for yourself if you want^^

Takadk Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Haha, yeah. xD and that's the thing! I don't see why some have a problem with people sharing their art. Well, yes, if they took the credit, or something like that. But in this case they're just sharing out because they love it. And that is indeed flattering :D But it also is a one of a kind!
Yup, you probably should have. Why didn't you foresee it? o: And here I thought you were psychic...

Yay! I may be able to print it out in poster quality. That would be cool.
But I'll allow myself to add your name to it. Just because I can ^^
