CE- Tears for the Lost by DragonHeartLuver CE- Tears for the Lost by DragonHeartLuver


Ok this is on of my Contest Entries to :iconnala15:s "Hidden Scenes - Betrothed" CONTEST!: [link]

A Contest based off of her fan Comic's Time jumps:

This image took ALLOT of work and time to do like a week from sketching, to inking, to coloring, to piecing together, to background making, to computer editing, and to shading and ECT.....

please look at ALL the detail i put into this image ^^

i notice no one really did one about Mohatu's death.... so i did it ^^

but i must say this was WELL worth the work ^^ i hope you like it

I DO PLAN ON ONE MORE ENTRY ^^

IN THIS PICTURE

A few months after Uru and Ahadi's wedding, Mohatu was enjoying a peaceful day in the pride lands, his loving mate, and queen Kanene by his side. Everything was going fine, they couldn't ask for a more beautiful day. As they continued to walk along, Mohatu seemed to get very weak, and the old Lion had to stop and rest a bit. He sat and chuckled to his mate

" i'll be fine,.... just need to rest the old bones is all"

Not long after, Mohatu got his strength back, and they finished there walk, returning home. Later that night, Kanene was woke up by Mohatu wheezing in air, trembling all over his body, and unable to speak. The Old King had fallen ill suddenly over night. The pride quickly all woke and ran off bringing the medicine man Rafiki back with them, to help aid the old King. Rafiki sent the pride out of the den, all but Kanene, Uru, and Ahadi as the young ape sighed sadly, and looked to the three teary eyed pride members, shaking his head.

" The king will not make it,..... his age has caught up to him, and he soon will join the great kings in the sky.... Now. would be the time to say your last good-byes, before he is to weak to hear you."

Not long afterwards, in the middle of the next day the old,wise, gentle king Mohatu had passed away ,while his mate Kanene laid by his side. The whole pride fell into deep sorrow, as they went out to a lush, grassy plain, and dug a grave for their departed king.

That night after Mohatu's body was buried, and Kanene placed a ring of African violets on Mohatu's grave. Rafiki began to chanted prayers, to great kings of the past to welcome Mohatu into their mighty kingdom, of the stars. As his grieving pride mourned, and remembered the good memories of the wise king. As suddenly a new bright star appeared in the sky. Like a sign that Mohatu was finally at peace, as the feeling of his spirit seemed to gaze down all around them.

One Circle of life has ended, making room for a new one to continue to grow.

R.I.P King Mohatu; may your claws stay sharp



IN this IMAGE you will see Uru's mother, Mohatu, Mohatu's Mate Kanene, Uru, Ahadi, Rafiki, Zuzu and 4 lioness of the pride

Wow! :wow: Just... WOW!!! :omg: You put a LOT of work into this. I can tell, even without reading the description first. FANTASTIC JOB!!! :la:

Where do I begin... Well, you drew all the characters beautifully! And when I say all, I really mean that you practically drew ALL the "Betrothed" characters (that appeared/were alive in the story up to this point)! And that definitely deserves some recognition. :nod: I spyed, again before reading the description, Kanene, Zawati, Uru, Ahadi, Zuzu, and Mohatu (and Rafiki of course even though he isn't my design :aww:). You did a great job on all of them! :D

And the BG and digital enhancements... WOW!! They really make this picture pop. From the shadows on the ground to the stars in the sky, everything looks amazingly well done! :hug:

Again, fantastically amazing work here! :squee: Thanks again for entering my contest and best of luck to you! :glomp: I can hardly wait to see your next entry! :D (If you still plan to do one, of course. :))

AAWWWWW ^/////^ :blush: THANK YOU HUN :hug:

i was so scared this one wasn't going to do so well but it seems everyone likes it so far... makes me happy ^^

lol well i figured since it was the death of the King they all should of been there and that they would have the funeral at night in the presents of the great kings to welcome Mohatu into their kingdom ^^

i wasn't sure if Uru's grandmother was still alive at this time or not .... so i didn't add her.... but i made Uru show a hurt heart for Ahadi's lost seeing that she still loved him as a friend and all....

i love computer editing my artworks it seems to add so much more into my work ^^ thank you at first the BG looked fake and crappy but i waited to upload it and added tress ad messed with the hills and grass a bit and it looked MUCH better ^^

THANK YOU SO MUCH HUN for you amazing words they mean allot ^^ :hug: and yes i still plan on one other but i doubt it will out do this one here XD

and question is blood ok to be seen in an entry? like if i was to draw two lions fighting? in the war?

Nala15 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012  Professional General Artist
No, I love it! :love: I think it's amazing! :D And again, I think the concept of Mohatu's funeral is an excellent idea. I was hoping someone would do something along those lines. Ta-da! You did! :dance:

Um, yeah, Uru's grandmother dies before Zuzu tells Uru and Ahadi that they're betrothed. So you got it right. :)

I agree that you did an incredible jog with this BG. It's awesome! :la:

YOu're so very welcome! :glomp: I'd love to see another one from you. :D And yes, blood is totally okay as long as it's not too much (like requiring a DA filter or something) And the war is also a topic I hoped someone would cover, so if you have an idea, you go for it! :D

Any chance I can give a bit of a critique on it? Because I have to say the tears are a bit iffy and it seems a bit empty(like everything is in one part of the pic.

Yes, I agree. Poor Kanene; having to watch her beloved husband die like that! I've had a few similar experiences myself -- only my husband was able to eventually have life-saving surgery, to keep him here with me.. :phew::happycry:

I can honestly say I love my husband! Although I was pretty scared, at first (like Uru, with Ahadi); I have fallen very much in love with him. (Like Uru; marriage was also a huge shock, for me -- shared lives, a shared bed, with a man who wanted to exercise his rights as a husband! Very scary!! But worst of all, was when he got really sick!!!! That's when I really discovered that, aside from my fears; I actually loved him..) I didn't want to lose him -- as he has always been a good man! Also, his sense of humour, along with his lion-like courage; had won me over!!

I'm so glad he survived! No, more than that -- he has thrived!! :iconw00tplz:
