Zuri - Commission by kohu-arts Zuri - Commission by kohu-arts
2/2 commissions for :iconmwoceanleaf:. :)

Please full view, DA's thumbnail does strange things. :p

Couple people are interested in his backstory, so here's what I got from :iconmwoceanleaf:

"So basically Zuri (the lion above) loved this lioness (Hope) who was the leader's daughter, but then she went missing for almost a year, and the leader had sent countless search parties, but no one could find her, so one day Zuri gets a small group of his friends together in a last effort to find her. Along the way he learns that Faith, Hope's sister, snuck along with them because she secretly loves Zuri and didnt want anything to happen to him.

Eventually they find Hope, and it turns out she ran away with a rival pride's male. Zuri is crushed when he finds out she has cubs as well, but then Faith makes him feel better, and they end up falling in love..."

If you look at nighttime scenes between these two, their coloration is completely different. ;3

Lots of people are curious on the back story, so instead of sumerizing it for everyone you can out this in the artist comments for now, and anyone that wants to follow me can read it in more detail as I post chapters...

So basically Zuri(The lion above) loved this lioness (Hope) who was the leader's daughter, but then she went missing for almost a year, and the leader had sent countless search parties, but no one could find her, so one day Zuri gets a small group of his friends together in a last effort to find her.

Kind of a long story, but I'll summerize it as best I can:

Lol the end :3
I hope that made sense ^^;

Last year meaning 2012. xD I consider 2013 the start of a new year, lol. ^^ And the early 2012 ones weren't the best, I sort of cheated and did very little with them. xD

ohhh my bad! D: this is why i shouldn't reply early morning! xD That's awesome, here i thought you were in dA for several years now :) as for cheating..everyone does that once in awhile they just don't mention it so your still pretty good in my perspective! :D I read your journal about the new adobe photoshop downloads,which i got PS elements 5 :dummy:, so I want to thank you for that! even if it's kind of late xD Hopefully by your bday i will get the hang of it and draw you something with that program ;D

LOL, it's okay, I know how that is. I can't get through my messages unless my full attention is on them, otherwise I start to say/write silly things. xD

And awesome that you got it, hopefully it works well for you! I'm so glad Adobe made that mistake, lol. <3 And awwwr, you don't have to. ;; I'm just glad more people can get access to good painting programs without having to pay out the nose for them. I don't mind paying for SAI, but PhotoShop is so expensive.

Yup its up and running! :dummy: me too! xD It's my pleasure hun^^ and yeah, I would buy them myself too but..i'm living with parents who say "art is time wasting" so I can't buy those programs^^;

I know the feeling. xD It's hard to devote so much time to DA when we have so many other things to do!

And heh, I hear you there. ;; I was so glad to move out and I can devote so much more time to my art now without anyone yelling at me. :) My dad is more understanding than my mom (my dad is into music), but they still think I should be doing something more productive with my time. They also don't understand that I can sit at the computer for hours and hours and draw something. xD
