You're Trespassing by Akeahi You're Trespassing by Akeahi
I sort of altered his original colors, mainly as an experiment of how he'd look if he appeared in the movies or something. I dulled them more than anything

I totally found Kion's glimpse of personality appealing, all strong and responsible contrasting Simba's (or even Kiara's) bratty persona as a cub

Beautifully done, but makes me wonder if the production team plan on aging him. :D

Thanks! Actually, from what I've seen in the show, to me he's got to be older than Simba and Kiara in the movies. I mean, despite Kovu also having a tuft as a cub and being called 'cub'- how the heck is Kion able to, y'know, fight if he isn't big and old enough to?

I absolutely love this. Too bad traditional artwork has gone the way of the Dodo (in terms of Disney feature films, that is). I would love to see a TLG movie, or anything in regards to TLK (WHO WOULDN'T?!) - ever since TLK1&2 I was hoping they would include comic canon/non-canon characters. I guess I'll just have to make do with TLG!

Your version looks gorgeous! Kion actually looks related to Mufasa like this. Much more true to old school TLK style and less new My Little Pony style. Thanks for sharing!

You did a great job with this. I wish they would make a featured film with Kion. I like personality as well. He seems very responsible more than how his parents were at his age. He didn't even want to go to the Outlands even though his friend Bunga insisted.

Thanks! They could have, but I don't know, guess they weren't willing to make such an investment
And yes, I found that interesting as well, which in turn made him interesting in my eyes

I so adore this! So much like Mufasa mixed with Simba. :) Great job! And I agree about the bratty cub thing -- that's why I can't stand Kiara. :p

That's actually what I tried to go for, given how I've seen comments stating just that, Kion taking after his grandfather : )

Ahaha, Kiara unfortunately suffered from lack of development, which is really sad

Cute.  Colors are always different.  The colors in the VHS tapes don't look the same as the "digitally enhanced" colors of the DVDs and Blu-rays.  Then their different between the first and second movie (partially I think the colors in the second move are to make it feel darker in our sub-conscious, like it's a "grey area").

I like his apparent responsible attitude too.  I always find it odd when characters do things they know they shouldn't, regardless of whether it's in TLK or a book or whatever.  It never turns out well...

:iconakeahi:
Akeahi Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's because they're, well, digitally enchanted, aka adjusting brightness/color deepening and stuff so it's of a better quality. I believe they're technically the same colors, just look in different shades depending on the 'mood'
Now the second movie has different colors, they're so dull I actually am not fond of them, haha

Well, most of the time, they don't really know the real consequences, so it's believable that curiosity get the best of them at times, especially if they're kids

BlackCharizard006 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2015  Student General Artist
Yeah, I definitely like the first movie's colors better.

I know people tend to be like that (I've seen it in action), but it's just odd to me, especially with adults and teens; they really should know better.  It never seemed strange to me in TLK because of their age, but as I got older, I realized that it was used a lot as a plot device.

Well that's another story, haha, if you can't keep it believable, then that's an issue
but we can't always avoid cliches in movies, now can we
