My second account on DA. Mostly focuses on TLK fanart and works related to the franchise.
NOTE: I DO NOT take requests, commissions, trades, collabs, etc. on this account. That is reserved for my main account. If your interested in any of these options, go there to find when and what I'm open to.
Can find my original account here :icondevinital: .

Sense the last journal entry went over so well, I thought I'd try another one.

Out of all the family linages created in the "The Lion King" universe, both from fans and based on the various "concepts" from copyrighted media, which interests you? What are the most popular theories and which are least popular? What family ties catch you interest the most?
What fan ideas and interpretations feel the most or least creative? What ones make the most or little sense? What family lines would you like to see pop up or be explored?

Personally, I'd like to see some creativity go into Kovu's line. I've seen some interesting ideas with Zira, Nuka, and Vitani, but most people don't seem to put too much creativity into Kovu's linage. Rinja had some interesting concepts from her second and third universe (before shutting down) but most people lump him in as Zira's child that Scar adopted or make him the grandchild of Scar. That or make him Kula/Chumvi's cub who happens to be related to Scar in some way.

The second idea I'd like to see more explored is "The First King of Pridelands" as mentioned in "The False Ancestor" comic. Again, Rinja's idea was interesting and I believe she was the first to come up with it (most people from what I observed made Mohatu the first king before Rinja came along). However, I noticed a lot of people tend to copy off her idea: separate prides at war before he unites them, he takes multiple mates and has multiple children from those mates, had three daughters, he was ultimately the good guy and embodiment of a king, etc. I'm not saying you can't make a interesting story from that (I love Nadra's comic that takes the previously mentioned conditions and makes them interesting) but it feels like every one has become hooked on one set idea and refuse to think outside the box on it. Especially when you consider how vague and open ended they make "the first king" from the comic: they're so much possibility and no one seems to notice it.

The last idea I'd like more people to take advantage of is the lineage between "The First King" and Mohatu. Surely some interesting events happened after the first kings passing and before Mohatu take over as king, especially when there is something like three generations between them has never been addressed. I think I've seen one or two people attempt to tackle this subject but its a mostly left alone. Funny how there are many comics and stories focusing on a prequel of TLK (Uru, Ahadi, Mohatu, Mufasa, Taka/Scar, etc.) but so few that don't try and fill in the time lineage of the first ruler to Mohatu.

So what about you? I'd like to hear you thoughts and ideas. Consider heavily what I've asked and made note of. i'd love to read your comments. ;D

Hey, don't put yourself down so easily. You could be you just have to keep on practicing. It took me years to get to this level so I have a lot of experience behind me. Believe me, five years ago I never thought I'd be at this level with my art: though I dreamed of being so. Just keep at, if you truly love doing it, you'll be amazed at were you go.
