"Look, Simba. Everything the light touches is our kingdom."
This will always be one of my favorite scenes from the movie, but the shadows were done very wrong to have the light touch all of the land and give Mufasa's words a stronger meaning. I tried to make this moment look the way I always wanted it to look like.
The Lion King belongs to Disney.General Disclaimer:
All of my TLK artworks are reproductions of original scenes from the movie(s) and were painted from scratch, using a reference screenshot for guidance. In the first step, I use a transparent layer over the screenshot to mark key locations (with dots and rough lines), which will later allow me to recreate the proportions and landmarks of the original landscape. This is a necessary step in the art of close reproduction. After that, the screenshot gets deleted. In the end, each of these paintings have higher quality and improvements over the original, as well as a more vibrant color palette and many changes in details.
