The Pride by Sanio The Pride by Sanio
Hello everybody! :D
Soooo.... This picture is like the biggest I've drawn!
This is the first time I've drawn the rocks by myself so don't kill me with comments that they are awful! :)

I've been drawing this thing for 2 days (with pauses- going to gym, making some Halloween decorations ^^, hanging with friends, etc.)

Anyway ... Here I drew Sarabi and here pride sister with their cubs.
From left to right, the one that’s yawning is Tojos mom (no name) also Sarafinas sister, next to her is laying Sarabis sister Naanda. Under them are Sarafinas sister and Tama's mom (no name). Tama is sitting by her mother. I've draw her like a devilish cub because I always imagine her as the one that is full of ''evil'' plans and making troubles in the pride. The lioness that is lying and her tail will be soon in Simbas paws is his aunt, Sarabis sister Diku. The problem is that she is a bit hysterical cat, always nagging and roaring on everybody. On the other rock are, Simba, Sarabi, holding her nephew Chumvi, Sarafina, Nala, Sarabis sister Dwala. Tojo is lying on Dwala and her daughter, Kula is chewing a bone (she is described as always hungry). Btw Chumvi is Dwalas son.

Tama: '' Simba, you always brag how you are going to be a king one day...''
Simba: '' Well that's because I'm going to!''
Tama: '' Then, prove it that you are a true king. I dare you to catch Dikus tail!''
Simba: '' Ha! No problem at all!''
Nala: '' Kula look, he's actually going to do that!''
Kula: '' Oh just leave me, I'm eating!''
Nala: '' Kula, look!''
Kula: '' What an idiot!''
Tama: '' Umm aunty Diku, I would prepare myself on your place!''
Diku (sleepy mode): ‘’Tama leave me alone!’’
Tama: ‘’ Oh I’m not touching you, don’t worry!’’
Diku (as Simba caught her tail): ‘’ ROAAAAAAAAAAR!!!!’’

''Funny'' story that goes with the picture! :)

Hope You like it as well as the picture! (download for better view)

I love the way you've drawn priderock in the background. The way you've put Sarafina resting her head on Sarabi's back, I think is funny. I like the part with Sarabi and Sarafina the most, I like to think of them being like best friends. As in the film they were. Because Sarabi's sisters were cut from the film. I like the idea of how you've put the two of them, still lounging out in the hot Savannah together (Sarabi and Sarafina). Also I really like that you've included the comic cubs. I sometimes wonder what the dynamic would have been like if they're were put in the The Lion King. Oh, the lioness who's yawning I like her too. As lions in real life love to laze around, you've put thought of natural lions into this art piece. I don't really see much LK work with the lionesses yawning or lazing around with their pride. I would have maybe liked to have seen one of the lionesses grooming a cub. But apart for all that. I really think it's good, the rocks as you stated aren't drawn good but are not awful:) Even though Sarabi is asleep she still has that elegance and pose of a queen hehe among her pride. I like how you've done that, she's my favourite LK character. You didn't make her look too heavily built or too dark :)
