All Else Fades by daanzi All Else Fades by daanzi
"It's always summer,
They'll never get cold,
They'll never get hungry,
They'll never get old and gray"
~the way

Decided to redo an old picture ( [link] ), and participate in the archive contest at TLKFAA. Two birds with one stone. :3

I did change some things though... because I thought the faded-gray bg added to the effect I wanted. :P

And yes, Simba doesn't really look much older here... even with my vain attempt at bags and crooked wiskers as well as a wicked mane. I think I was too worried about him not looking like Simba so I didn't take it far enough.... I'll probably play around with this idea some more. I like the idea of them as geezers.

It's problematic because lions don't really get to look old... most of them die before getting old :XD: When dogs age they usually get white fur around their muzzle, sometimes they get little tumors/moles... I wonder if Lions do the same?

Simba doesn't have to look geezer-ish. You've captured Simba aging very nicely. Maybe have some of his mane fall out... ^^

Geezerly lions :p
ya know, they don't look half as bad as real geezerly lions do... ;p haven't i shown you pictures of Samantha at the Honolulu zoo, and how geezerly she was? lmao


nah, this still looks Amazing, as usual. :P i just know that i personally would have gone for the weird geezerly appearance..but thats because i can't make tlk characters Look like TLK characters to begin with anyway.... *rambles* i better go to the zoo now and feed some bears....and stop typing here...but i dontw ant too..cause its cold outside..it's at least warmed up to 9....been in the negatives most mornings o-o *ramble ramble ramble ramble*

MAKE MORE AWESOME ARTS NOW

LOL, I really really really REALLY want to draw some Simba looking geezerly and weird.... I was a little worried that I might distort him so he was unrecognizable. I guess he's just at his prime in this picture and I'll do the ones where he is REALLY old later.

I mean, I didn't even pull the gray mane card! WTF!

I may have to use your picture as a reference. Hehehe.

I should get off of here and finish getting ready for work... Or I'll be late. XD

Simba got a darker mane as a sign on age! 8) likey!
Maybe it is his color what makes him look young still, all shiny and new… maybe a duller colour would age him? first thing I noticed was the unkept chin. The chin works, I say, that's what made me go "is he oold?"
I love Nala's expression. She's so calm and so proud like she is happy with what life has given her… and what she has done with it. A happy old girl *hugs*

:icondaanzi:
daanzi Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
YES, I agree... I will have to try the duller colors next time... I think that would really help make him appear older.

Thank you very much!! <3

daanzi Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011
LOL yeah, thats more than likely true. I always tend to give my lions super long necks. XD Probably doesn't help that I draw a lot of giraffes lately, or that I sketched this directly over the original so kinda got some of the original proportions from the old picture. :P

Thank you! <3<3<3

Yay I'm glad you're doing good! ^_^ I've been pretty busy myself.

Between the change of full-time work to part-time, worrying bout payments for my new house(1 yr anniversary this past Jan:dance:), upstairs renters cause my house is a duplex, my car being 14yrs old and needing lots of stuff to fix on it.. and researching the possibilities of a new car and if I can afford the $$ for one or not...

um.. :XD: My parents buying most of the needed equipment for a future hot glass studio and them owning the house next door to me for it.. X3 my home having frontage on a major highway which is great for the future business.... lol my Lil' Nephew turning 4yrs old this April.. my new BF and all...

It's been a whirlwind of changes from moving out of my parents home to my own to now. :D It's been educational too ^_^ I hadn't realized how much $ & wrk it was/is to own property and all that comes w/ it. 8) Granted I knew what it's like to own and insure my car... but until now, not for a home of my own.

I can't imagine what it's been like for my mom n' dad money wise esp. with my big bro and me, schooling and all. *shudders* must've been nerve raking for sure at least!:nod:s

Anyways, in a nutshell, it's been a pretty crazy from last Jan '10 to now. But I'm gettin through it all and life's been treating me good too! :hug:
