Okay so these are a little bit meh because they’re both first attempts at humanising Scar and Mufasa, and I wasn’t trying to stylise them too much so they seem a bit boring and rushed.
It’s more to prove a point in how much facial structure can make it easy to tell two characters apart and say a lot about who they are personality wise.
ooh really good :D
One thing you should be careful about when it comes to scar is that it’s easy to make him look a lot like Jafar (since they both have narrow head shape). Also, I think it might be a good idea ot make the eyes on mufasa a tad smaller. His bangs resemble Simba’s a little bit more as well. Lol sorry I’m just being picky with the details haha.
A protip is to check out the character sheets and concept art on TLK-characters, it often shows you the process and hints on what is their main features.
Also, it’s good to know things like that scar is slightly based on the voice actors face apparently, so check that out as well :) sometimes animated movies tend to base the character design on the voiceactor (but that does not go for all characters of course).
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.
I’m slowly getting better and better at using my non-dominant hand. It was very uncomfortable in the beginning, but it’s much easier now. The hand muscles sure learn fast!
i’ve always wanted to draw a humanized version of Scar fomr TLK. Might do human Mufasa too or something, I dunno.
I’m also gonna try drawing with my NON-dominant hand. This is going to be a fun challenge!
