Small ranting critique time: TLK-Humanizations

Since I really don’t feel like reblogging the original post with my rant, I’m just gonna link you to it below.

It’s this post of the humanized versions of Scar and Mufasa from the Lion King.

Sure they are cool in their own sense. Pretty drawings are pretty drawings after all.

But to be honest, I find these versions of scar and mufasa as very lame attempts at being humanized.

first off - EPIC HORSE-FACE-SYNDROME I MEAN LOOK AT THAT NOSEBRIDGE GURRRL IT GOES ALL THE WAY TO MARS.

As I maybe have mentioned before - people who do horse face syndrome often also have same-face-syndrome.

Secondly, Mufasa looks waaay too young to resemble the character. I’m pretty damn sure you wouldn’t think that was mufasa if it wasn’t for the drawings to the left.

Compared to Simba, Mufasa has a much stronger chin. Mufasa looks more masculine in general, the artist seem to only be able to draw young bishounen-faces.

If it was a humanization of Simba, it would have worked better. Since he’s younger than his father (no shit sherlock).

Scar is pretty “meh”. You could srsly copy-paste mufasa’s face, change the colors and add some “angry evil wrinkles” and you have a humanized scar like this.

Also it bothers me that the drawings of the lion version of Scar looks more like a dog than a lion.

The nose is too short. One of the main key features in scar’s design is his long and narrow head shape, ignoring that will remove a lot of his design. Scar is more than just a little skratch above the eye and a black mane for fuck’s sake.

Also let’s not forget that scar has a bit of a beard at his chin if you’d compare it to mufasa’s. A little minus point there as well.

Well do I have anything positive to say about them?

well, the artist nailed their “hairstyles” pretty well and the clothes are pretty sassy and cool.

And yes this is my opinion, I think the design of those pictures are lame and could have been executed way better.

And also as a bonus to this rant, the Timon and Pumba humaizations are very good. You can clearly see the characters behind them. Only thing I’d like to change is pumba’s skin color and perhaps adjust his nose a little bit. But he really fits as a POC now when I look at it.

Next time I rant about a post I don’t feel like reblogging will be on the so called “historically accurate" disney princesses, that is anything but historically accurate.

Humanized drawings of Scar from The Lion King.

Everything…. srsly, EVERY FUCKING STROKE, was done with my non-dominant hand.

The sketch to the right was my first attempt. The lines are squiggly and it took me way too much time to just sketch down a circle.

On the other two, I got a better grip of it. I started to rotate the picture while working, which proved to be very effective. I set my tablet to right-handed mode, so even if I would use the pen with my left hand(the dominant one), I would still have to switch to right handed because otherwise I would accidentally push the buttons on my tablet (NOTE: this was intended to happen. To force myself to stick with my right hand.)

I’m extremely tired right now, so I’m off to crash to bed. But I hope this post will inspire others who also work to become ambidextruous. Today was the first time I tried drawing with my right hand with a tablet, it was so much harder and trickier to get used to. But as soon as I found the right position of my arm, it went much better.

Although I think my left hand is a bit pissed, at the beginning it really wanted to draw. But I told Leftie that Righty has to practice using the pen first.
