The One True King by Crispy-Gypsy The One True King by Crispy-Gypsy
I mentioned that I saw the Lion King in Vegas right?

So fucking beautiful.

Anyway, drew this halfway into drawing a DD page because I realized that I can't draw and that I needed to loosen my hand a little. It's been a while since I actually just did a quick pose and then quick lines/sketch so here you go. Tossed on some color too.

Oh Simba. You discovered yourself. Why can't I? Do I need to find a friendly mandrill first?

I just saw the show for the second time in years(Though not in Vegas). Such a great, beautiful show. 

And this is a fantastic drawing. I can't even believe you'd call it a sketch. If only my sketches could come out half as good. I loved how you used warm yellows, oranges, and reds. It really gives it that feel of Africa. Don't even think for one moment you can't draw.

Finally, a humanized version of Simba that's actually African! It puzzles me why so many people on this site portray the Lion King casts as Caucasians when the movie takes place in freakin' Africa.

Very beautiful design. Love the colors and the style. But you need to put a 'mature' filter on it if you're going to swear like that in your discription

Since I don't agree with you, I don't think so. Anyroad, the cursing is in the description, and if there was a mature content filter on it, you'd still see the description and not the piece. That's just silly. Sorry if my cursing offends, but I'm not censoring myself. Thanks for your kind words on my picture though :3

I didn't realize that.
I just thought it might be nice as TLK is something kids will be looking up.

But I really do love that picture. It's so well done.

OK, now I'm jealous. Not of your skills; I admire artists that are better than myself and aspire to be as good as they are, but I never stoop to jealousy as I see it as a cop-out of getting to that level. But I'm jealous that you got to see the stage adaptation of TLK. I have been wanting to see that play for God knows how long now.

And yes, this pic is beautiful!

Woooow. Fantastic, really. More than fantastic. And I can feel the power of LK musical. Have seen it in London, absolutely astonished by it's costumes and everything. So many colours, so great masks.
This picture absolutely made my day.

No, you need to run away and become unlikely friends with a warthog and merekat.

This is a great pic. I saw Lion King when it was in LA many many years ago.

While he was indeed friendly, I feel like that mandrill was slightly...off. You might want to find an animal friend that is slightly less insanely abusive!
