This Is Your Land by NostalgicChills This Is Your Land by NostalgicChills
"This is your land. Wherever I go.
Way out here I know...This is your land."

('This Is Your Land' by Simple Minds)

---------------------------------------

As a child, the most captivating things about 'The Lion King' were the songs, the characters and the cartoony animation. But as you get older, you begin to appreciate the more subtle details, such as the score, the design, biblical references etc. For me; one of the best things about this movie is the Art. Those breathtaking landscapes, the scenes and the accurate anatomy on the characters are nothing short of inspiring. Long Live TLK!! :heart: :heart:

It had been a while since i did an elaborate piece, and this was inspired by a spectacular concept artwork that belongs to the Disney company.

Awesome! How are you getting along, figuring outphotoshop? And, yes; you should notice an EPIC improvement once you figure out all the kinks (re: Photoshop).

I'm going to begin work on a project revolving around African lions soon. Let me know if you're interested in having your work featured!! ;)

All credit will be given to featured artists! :thumbsup:

I've heard that -- that Photoshop is tricky, at the best of times!! :frustrated: But I'm sure you'll get the hang of it. ;) :)

Thanks! :glomp: It's a conservation report, history lesson, and fun project, all in one! :)
Hopefully, I can get a chance to feature at least some of your stuff, there... It's just SO good!!

simba!!!!!!!! I watched the Lion King today, I'll watch everytime I can even if I'm 14 years old. I love the detail of the background, the characters, music, animation and drama. I dont think Simba's pride was that good, they didn't put all that effort in like the original. I wish they'd make a 4th one, Lion king 3 was pathetic

oh yes!! Simba's pride wasn't that good, i completely agree with you! they were really lazy when doing the anatomy and the backgrounds etc. and yes TLK 3 was an insult! thanx for the comment :)

Really great picture! You've drawn this lion very well, he looks like a great king patrolling his Pridelands. It looks like Mufasa, is it mean't to be him?
