Strange Land by PuddingPack Strange Land by PuddingPack
Stranger in a strange land

The request thing is on hold until the 20th-ish. I'm really busy with last minute portfolio work THAT NEEDS TO GET DONE LIKE ASAP. NOT KIDDING TOP NOTCH ILLUSTRATIONS NEED TO GET DONE IN TWO WEEKS UHFDGAS.

I'm pretty proud of this piece but it was such a challenge. And it took 5ever to finish. Critiques are highly appreciated!

 But if anyone makes lion king jokes I will seriously hide your comment. THEY AREN'T FUNNY

Yeah so when I clicked on it it was because I thought the lion's horns were sunglasses.

It's still pretty kickass tho. Just not what I was expecting.

Impressive.

At first I looked at this as an aimge of a fantastic world, of a king with two lions as "pets".

But when I look closer, I see small drips of blood falling from his horns (And the fact taht he has those horns) and it maeks me feel this goes more into a surrealistic way, not of a magic king but more of a certain god or other kind of fantastic religious entity, and that such blood is merely a symbolism of something related to the religion that surrounds him.

In any case, that by just looking at this pic for 10 seconds made my imagination fly so far aways was impresive. an outstanding work.

I am so glad you got a daily deviation for this!!! I love his armor its so shiny! And his horns and the lions are very different indeed. They could definitely have come from a 'strange land'!!!

Oh they're so pretty! No lion king jokes,though the one on the right kind of has the xpression of scar. ;) i can't see how just that could cause so many people to make jokes, it's a really pretty picture. *scratches head* um let's see critique, the colors go together really nice, and the atmosphere is top notch! The only thing i find really off-putting is the position of the tail. It's kind of hard to tell who's rump it's coming out of. :P

Well actually if you use logic with the tail direction you'd see it's coming from the one on the right.

This looks pretty cool. Great color, great balance, and I like the style. However, lol, when I first saw that he had horns and his head was bleeding, and then I saw the missing horns on the lions, the first thing I thought was "it looks like he cut the horns off and stuck them in his own head." lol, I know that's not the scenario. It's just the first thing that popped in my head when I saw the blood. :D

Overall, this looks great. Very nicely done. ^^

Yes, the scene looks sort of "kingly" and it does have lions in it, but I didn't even think of Lion King at all, even though it's my favorite movie! =D
So cudos to you, this is absolutely marvelous. A very unique idea and so well painted =^_^=
They look so alive and I love the bright colors and strong contrasts =)

OOOOoooooohhhhh. I was wondering what she meant by "lion king" jokes. I get it now. Because he's a king, and those are...wow, that's really corny. lol.

Toyger Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'm not sure if he's a king or just a knight, but he could be seen as one, or could be a king. But not sure why people even thought of it anyway =P
One person must have started and triggered the others =)
