Got another one! D8
no background this time though, but I just LOVE the Kiara and Kion sibling relationship, there is so much story potential with it ^^

I'll have to readjust the size later

I get the feeling the first episode takes place after the events of Kiara meeting Kovu for the first time, which leads Kiara to acting as the to-be leader of the pride.

This is so adorable and somewhat sad at the same time, although realistic as I can imagine that a lot of siblings grew apart over time. Reminds me a bit of my younger brother and me, although while Kiara and Kion still seem to share a strong bond, ours is pretty strained. :/ Which is weird because I get along with all my other siblings perfectly fine. :shrug:
Haha, sorry, I ramble, your picture just made me think about it. :'D The pictures are all very beautifully drawn, and I really like your younger, maneless version of Kion. :D Keep up your awesome work! :la:

This is not only so cute but it's very personal to me and close to my heart. I have a little sister (by 21 months) and when we were babies we were inseparable. All of our baby pictures had the two of us very close, just like Kiara and Kion in the first image. As she and I got older, we played together and I was able to count numerous great memories of having her around, a big brother couldn't ask for a better sister. That middle picture reflects Kiara and Kion as young cubs playing cub games just like my sister and I used to play. However, as the years past, my sister was becoming distant from me, even going to the point of just purely hating me. It's kind of like that last picture there, Kiara is glaring at Kion whereas Kion, who wants to play, is looking rather upset at the way it seems like Kiara is treating him. It makes me sad too, I miss those good old days and all the memories from the past. This image reflects on the relationship that my sister and I had growing up. She's the closest best friend I have and yet everything that comes out of her mouth is a put-down on me.

Anyway, this image is really close to my heart and every time I look at it I think of the great times I see between me and my sister.

We grew up closer than (most) anything.
Closer than anything.
Shared our bed, and wore the same clothes.
Talked about anything, spoke about so many things.

This explains Kiara's character change in TLG, I prefer it to her SP character but it's nice for how both personalities actually meet, SP first half Kiara is a cub and in that child phase, TLG Kiara is entering adolescence and the teenage phase, SP second half Kiara is full grownish and has reverted back to her cub self almost, I suspect that her adult self will be fully matured. ;) (Wink)

...You know what would be a sort of shocking plot twist? If we're told that Kion is actually the first born twin and both Simba and Nala kept it a secret from them (at least, until the cubs become adults and Kiara becomes queen).

:icontc-96:
TC-96 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
though, why would they do that to them?
Reply

sairey13 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016
Well (this is all a thought, and in my opinion, even though this may not make actual sense), if you remember "Can't Wait to be Queen", Simba had Kiara to take over while he and Nala were gone to an old friend's funeral. As the Future Queen, she has to be able to make decisions and have others to follow her orders, without any complications and/or those questioning of her choices.

If Kion were to be Kiara's older twin-brother (and both knew about it), he wouldn't actually listen to her (although, he might start to listen when Mufasa talks to him about his sister's judgement) and would either tease her or baby her, even if Simba told him to listen to his "little" sister. Even when Kion is to one day run his own Pride and Kiara to become the new leader of the Pride, any past experience she learns as a cub will either help her take care of the Pride, or have her struggling to become a leader she never had the chance to act like.

So, really, if this were to happen, Simba and Nala would be helping Kiara build up her confidence (even though she might have a bit too much of it), help her experience what it would be like to be in charge and feel like she has actual power over the Pride she'll one day use once she becomes queen.

...Like I said, these are my opinion and may not make sense, but they're just thoughts that may or may not be possible.

"You used to talk to me, like I was the only one around.
You used to lean on me, the only other choice was falling down.
You used to walk with me, like we had no where we needed to go.
Nice and slow, to no place in particular!"

Agreed! Awww, baby Kiara and Kion are adorable! Their little tails--so cute! I love them playing as sibs!  I hope we get some good sibling development as well.  I have a theory that Kira is actually six months older than Kion and that "maturity" is starting to kick in with her, making it harder for her to tolerate her little brother's whims. You really did well with their posing and expressions.

Aww... this series of pictures I can really relate to too. My sister and I were really close and then there was a short period of years where she couldn't stand me because I wasn't "cool" and I was an outsider by choice where she really wanted to fit in. We're best friends again now, but memories.

how...because she doesn't agree with what he's doing?( i dont think that what makes her a bitch) unless your talking about her bragging about her position( being queen and what not) kind of reminds me of simba when he was young wanting to be king and not caring for the rules.

though it does strike me a little odd that she would care about being queen sense in the movie she didn't really want to be ruler.( she so out of character in this cartoon, but i dont really watch), i only seen small clips of it.
Kiara way to up tight in this show. 

first people didn't like her in the movies, the creators decide to change her and people still dont like her.

touc Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2016
first, yeah, she totally changed. I don't like how she is bragging, that's right, and how she's a total telltale. In the movie, when Kion created the Lion Guard, she ran to Simba to tell him what he's doing (recruiting non-lions) instead of questioning Kion FIRST why he's doing it that way.
Before that, Kion told her Simba has chosen him to be the leader of the new Lion Guard, which he commented with "oh my god does father know about that". What does she think, that Kion made that up? She, as the future queen, should know about the Lion Guard, and that her brother wouldn't invent things like this.

Personally I don't belong to the people who didn't like her in the first movie. I liked her way better back in the time, but I really dislike her now. Maybe the producers will make her nicer in the next episodes, at least I hope so.

i didn't say you did, that i was just talking about the two different size of the fandom I've seen. 
anyway, i'm just going to convince myself that the writers made her from a headstrong fun loving character to a attention seeking goody two shows. 
plus, maybe she not interested in the lion guard job, she was probably only paying attention to her own interests. personalty, i think  kopa or kion should be the next ruler, not because i dont think Kiara cant do it. just, she never really seemed interested in the position in the first place.

I call the dreaded 'Teenage Phase'. My own big sister and I went through the same thing once we hit puberty: one day we were romping and playing about like the best of pals, then one day she's suddenly 'got more important things to do then play silly games'. The look on Kion's face is one I know all too well and completely sympathize with. Give it time, kiddo; she'll get over herself one day.

Yeah that's my issue. They pretty much made Kion a male LK2 Kiara...and turned her into a prissy brat who tattles... 8/ I dont mind if its a different take and for younger kids..just wish they gave kids something better. I did like the recent episode though, hell some of the animation got better 8D...some of it.

i agree, the writers are making Kiara seem completely opposite of the way she was in Simba's Pride. All prissy in stead of care free and adventurous.

Not too long ago, I was wondering about why Kion didn't appear in the second Lion King movie but in the tv series, Kion and Kiara are the same age so that means Simba and Nala had two cubs but Kiara was born first so Rafiki presented her and in the movie, she was the main focus so that's probably why he didn't appear. Also in the tv series, Kiara is older and she acts nothing like she did in the movie so that explains a lot.
