Contest #3: Untold Journey Contest [link]
In celebration of 'The Untold Journey' being nearly fully told, I would like to launch an art contest. I think you've seen enough of each of their personalities to make something out of it So here goes:Theme:
'When they were together' Details:
Tojo, Malka and Chumvi lived together with a bunch of cubs and lionesses in a place called the Highlands (read about it here: [link]). This contest is about illustrating a scene 'when they were together' in the Highlands. What kind of things happened? Did they take the cubs on outings into the desert? Did they bungee jump off the cliff side? What kind of things did the adults do to ensure the cubs didn't fall off the path on the way up? Perhaps something on Tojo's clumsiness? What about Chumvi's hair? Oh the list goes on. Your scene can be on anything that is related to their time in the Highlands, it can also be any genre (eg. happiness, sadness, etc)
Some character references are here:
Tojo's birds: [link]
The cubs: [link]
Malka's true colours (minus the dream-like faded colours in the comic): [link]
Tojo, Malka and Chumvi's sizes: [link] Specifications:
As this is a contest on 'The Untold Journey', I would ask if you could use my version of Tojo, Malka and Chumvi in your scene.
The scene must have at least two lions. That means you don't have to include all of the three males (although you can if you choose to). It can be Tojo and a cub. Or Malka and a lioness. Chumvi and a bird, etc. But yes, it can be more than two characters.
You have my permission to use my oc cubs Juffy, Firo or Cahi in your pictures as they are depicted in the comic. If you wanna use one of the other cubs that appear in the story, you have to ask the permission of their respective owners. The Untold Journey cubs are here: [link]
However, you may insert one of your oc cubs into the scene as one of the cubs living/passing by the Highlands.
You may do it in comic form, though this is not necessary. Judging criteria:
The art itself (This won't be looked at too heavily as I understand different artists have varying degrees of artistic skill. However, as this is an art-based contest, I cannot fully ignore this element xD)

Contest #4: Wasiri
I totally unoriented in the variety of heroes from TLK Universe (except for the original from the film), so that there is a lion who hasn't his history. Although he has a name - I decided to call him Wasiri, which means "stealthy."
A character without this history is: [link]

* draw Wasiri (in any form - from lineart to full art)
* indicate in the description to art who his parents: specify the names and references to the original image of prospective parents
