TLK - Can We Keep Him? by XoverLover TLK - Can We Keep Him? by XoverLover
I was re-doing my character concepts for the yaoi twist of The Lion King, and these came out. They were sketches, so excuse any errors you might find.

There's Timon (lanky redhead), Pumba (roundish softy), and Simba.

Yes, I know he looks more like Scar's son than Mufasa's, but I wanted him to be black. ><; Which is going to fail epically when I actually do the comic, since it's going to be your average soft-featured anime guy with attempted black features.

But meh. I don't really care at all. =O

Soooo... Timon and Pumba are a married couple in this version, right? Oh please please please let it be so! I was seven when I saw this, but I was sure they were married even then!!

Because it'd be a bunch of submissions and a lot of copy-pasting links because I like to have 'First, Previous, Next, Last' links on the description. ; u; Smackjeeves does that for me already. xD

In DA I only post the spanish version under another account. o .o

mm, lovely ^_^

The broadway musical echoes (started...?) your decision on a black simba, and I think he looks lovely.

Reminds me of a little Mowgli man-child from the Jungle Books...mmm now I'm just thinking of a personified Bagheera...XD

Can't wait to see the comic *nom*

Well, I had the idea before realizing Broadway's Lion King had black actors. xD They reinforced it. But they came first.

Unfortunately, it might be months... or years... before I actually make the comic, so I should quit the character development and work on comics that are closer to release, like Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella. ^^;

But who was Scar's son?

Well, Kobu was Scar's son until the Disney movie-makers realized that if he WAS Scar's son, he'd be incesting with Kiara, so he was made into Scar's adopted son.

So Scar didn't have a canon son. What I meant was that, given his skin tone, people might assume the kid is Scar's son, not Mufasa's. Which is why I made the author comment, clearing up that he IS Simba, despite skin color, because I wanted him to be black, as the movie takes place in Africa, yadda yadda.

OMG!!!! SQUEEEEE!!! So Cute!!!!!!

Ok I think its out of my system. Onto the real comment!

I love how you drew the characters! Especially Simba, I can't look at those huge eyes without wanting to hug him. >w<;;

You also captured Pumba's and Timon's personalites really well. Also I love how you pretty much did their initial reactions from the movie; Pumba all for it Timon a little hesitant.

Two thumbs up from meh! ^^

XoverLover Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes. Even Timon cannot say no to the huge black eyes. OwO

He's also traumatized and hurt near there, so that also helps in deciding that yes, you should totally adopt a random potential killing-machine you found laying around. :O

Simba likes sleeping with Pumba's belly for a pillow. :3

NOBODY able to be called HUMAN could say no to those eyes.

and lolz I understand why he's nervous but the licking....who can say no to that? So with the eyes and the licking....REALLY!? I dare you to say no!

Who wouldn't? Pumba's cuddly >w<
