Mzima = 'Alive'
Re-design of one of my old Lion King OCs, based on a photo of a plushie lion peanutchan
posted, with a liberal amount of artistic license.
For example, in the picture the bridge of the plushies nose kinda looked darker than the rest of his fur, so I decided that Mzima should have a darker patch there. But as I was trying to decide the exact shade I wanted to use, I happened to fill that part in with the same color as his mane, and my, that actually looked nice! And it amused me that while that particular marking is shared between him and Peanutchan's character Nero, they're pretty much polar opposites. Nero is all sleek and cool, while Mzima's just such a happy hippie.
Now that Mzima has a new look, I'm kinda feeling like dusting off a couple of my other Lion King OCs and doodling a bit.
