.:The Little Lion:. by oribi .:The Little Lion:. by oribi
Not many people know, that The Lion King was the love of my childhood.. I had almost everything of Lion King.. Huge Simba plushie, soundtrack on a tape, the movie on video of course, t-shirt, book, a poster, small sheet from a notebook(all kids in kindergarten used to collect these...oh my I remember I had to give one of the girls about 10 different and rare sheets to trade for that one precious sheet with Simba slashing Shenzi :P), PC game, small toy from McDonald's, a copybook and maybe something more but I don't remember now... I cried on this movie when I was a kid, and I admired beautiful landscapes, animation and music when I was older.. 'Till now I remember Hakuna Matata's words including dialogues :)

A simple, but coming from my heart painting. I know it may seem nothing special for some of you, but not for me.

Media: blue watercolour, white ink and gel pen and some kind of cardboard which gave me Crudity about year ago.. I must say that this is the best thing I could ever have.. I can add as much water as I want and nothing happens to it! :D

Do you still have the original to this?  I would consider purchasing it.  I am an OIF veteran and Simba was my first tattoo as I relate to him very much.  I would really love to own the original to this it would mean so much to me... please shoot an email to me at lilash84@gmail.com whenever you get this.

This is beautiful - I love the blue tones to it, gives it a sad feeling.
I love 'The Lion King' as well - have been a fan of it from when it came out, I think I was 11.

Hello! We've never talked before but The Lion King is my favorite movie as well. I went looking for phone cases, hoping I could find one with the Lion King on it, and I found this.

I do hope this is you in fact selling this for as you can see most of the watermark is cut out and your signature is gone as well. Your piece is excellent I hope it isn't stolen.

The Lion King is amazing. You can really tell this is a meaningful for you through the picture - the composition and the colours are just right.

Hi!

I just want to let you know that I based a picture upon this. I would've let you know much earlier -- but I found YOUR picture on a tumblr blog and, by the way it was drawn, honestly thought it was concept art from the movie. I am so sorry and I'll change everything now! If you like I can even take my picture down. Here's a link to it: [link]

Again, my apologies! Beautifully picture. Inspired me enough to make my own so I'm sure you can understand of how much I love it.

I loved The Lion King when I was little. It was definitely one of my all time favorite Disney films. My mom said when I was little I watched it like 40 times a day and nearly drove my brother crazy!
