Leo by NadiavanderDonk Leo by NadiavanderDonk
Attempt on Jungle Emperor Leo fanart.

It was really hard to ignore my anatomical style and do a cartoony artů. XD I am planning to do a full fan artwork piece soon.

You can find also the headshot sketch of it here: [link]

Leo = Kimba

Leo is his original name in Japan. Until it went to the US and got dubbed " Kimba"

Awww I thought Kimba was the little lion and Leo was his dad. I haven't seen but like 1-2 episodes of the show and 2 of the movies.

yeah they somewhat do, but the 97's movie is quite wonderfully done though. I love the style. Look at these gifs for example:

The latest movie of 2009 is also awesome but its much more anime style/modern. but at least they got the animal anatomy spot on (Leo cub looks like a pokemon though)

But yeah the old animations were quite shitty drawn :C

But it's the old ones you keep going back to. G1 Transformers was crappy as hell, the animation had tourette's syndrome, but I still love it c:

hehe! I had the dvd of the old one once. But I barely had interrest in because I prefered TLK and Bambi at that time. I can't even remember what it was about! XD So yeah. Until a month ago I watched the 2009 one, which I loved. And the '97 movie I watched yesterday and i loved it more! XD

Any chance at all that this maybe has something to do with Kimba the White Lion? Gah, I loved that show, had most of the episodes on VHS (Kickin' it old school. xD)

Even if it's not, sweet drawing! And thanks for the nostalgia kick.
