One of the largest group pictures I've made in recent years: a collection of zebras from The Lion King Fan Art Archive (some of which are probably roaming on DevART as well). Though most of the characters are (unsurprisingly) lions, there are quite a few zebras there too. Hey, those carnivores have to have something to eat, right? (Just kidding.
So I decided to draw as many zebras that caught my eye as I dared. There are 13 altogether. Here are the names of the characters and their creators in case you can't make them out:
Nino (Wolverina), Warsaw (Neeka), Hullabaloo (Kipcha), Run (Quill), Sakitu (Ice Clover Epona), Stripey (Saft), Lio (Makani), Mbatobato (Chui)
Oralie (Kelt), Johari (Kastse), Albino (the white one, Pegasuss), Mteketezo (Bruyere), Zig (me)
I keep trying out new drawing methods to minimize my computer time. For this drawing, I started out with a very small sketch (about 6" long), scanned it into the computer, tinted it blue, enlarged it, printed it out, inked it with a drawing pen, scanned that in, removed the blue, and finally colored it.
And amazingly, as many zebras as I found on that archive, none of them
had walnuts (the round, bare "warts" that real zebras have on their inner forelegs), even the faintly realistic ones. Oh well.
