Bros by kourukon Bros by kourukon
I have a problem with Scar and hyenas' interaction in the film.

He offends and belittles them, not to mention he's physically abusive - and they let it all go. It can't be because they're doing it for a piece of meat every once in a while.

I like to think they are, or at least they were once, real friends having fun trash-talking Mufasa and causing problems in Pridelands. So here they are, being bros.


I will never draw Scar properly :C there's just something in his face I can't get right even with bazillion of reference pictures at hand.

I luv the thought of them interacting like this :love: It seems to me that it couldn't really be by fear either since they effortlessly killed him when he used them as a scapegoat. I really like the way you drew all of their faces :aww: so very perfect.

Are you kidding? Scar's face looks pretty good, really fitting for the way he's ruffling Shenzi's bangs and holding Ed. And I also like to think that at some point, him and the hyenas actually were friends and not just them being his minions and putting up with him.

Don't put yourself down, Scar's face looks great.
The hyenas are just adorable, I love Ed!

hahah thank you so much :aww: I ended up having a resentment towards this picture because of some comments I got on it, but then I forgot all about it and reading your comment made me look at it and appreciate it again :) so thank you for that! And for your kind words (and story to go with the pic, haha), you totally made my day <3

I can only imagine what must be going through Shenzi's mind.

Shenzee is all like: GGGGGGRRRRRR I wish you wouldn't give me claw noogies.


I know her full name. Shenzee Marie Jackalina Hyena.

Even though Shenzi's a girl, this is still an awesome picture and I love it!

I love Shenzi as the put-upon girlbro.  :D

Just a little but of input, I think the reason why Scar's face doesn't look right, is because his eyes are too big and round :) That's just an opinion! Great work! :D
kourukon Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013
Yeah, his whole face is too big ^^; oh well.
Qvercast Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Student General Artist
Haha a little, BUT the rest of it is perfect! :D

This is awesome ! :o What program did you use to get the effects ? :?
kourukon Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
Thank you ^^ I usually do these effects on photoshop, but it can be done on SAI too if you're patient :)
bounceyDAbest Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Student Filmographer
No problem. :) I may be getting Sai Here soon.

I think that they are friends indeed, but that kind of twisted friendship that ended when Scar blame everything on them trying to save himself.... Oh well ^^ Another beautiful picture
4evermonicris Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
it's great :D I think you drew Scar perfectly!

I love this. Especially Shenzi's face! :rofl:

I think the reason Shenzi's mad is cause they forgot that she's a female
ReginaZelfiXD Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
I like it. I can see that the hyenas would be his bros, given that he's second fiddle to Mufasa and has no other friends really.

Nice! I loved the expressions of these characters!:)

Looks amazing (obviously I faved :) ) Shenzi doesn't like petting her head, does she?
Anatoliba Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
Yeah, I have the same problem with this. I really like the idea that they are friends, but I think in the movie Scar just see the hyenas as his loyal henchmen and that's why he treats them like that. The hyenas however see him as a friend, because he gives them food and promise them a better life when he'll become the king.

Awesome work in this! Great to see a new drawing from you. :) *waits for more*

kourukon Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
Thank you! ^__^ I really have a lot of ideas what to draw, so I hope I'll be more productive this time XD

Sooo cool bro!
Flameshadow117 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
so cute! Yeah, I think they must have been friends too, I mean, they hyenas even say, "You're one of us! You're our pal!"
And then they figured, they could go along for the ride while Scar took over the pridelands, and that he was ultimately going to help them.... and then he renounces them at the end of the movie, and they're like, "dude, last freaking straw." :C So sad when friendships end badly.
kourukon Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
:O did they? I need to watch the movie again.
Yeah, it's a shame, seeing how Scar could be the one to end the hatred between lions and hyenas...
Flameshadow117 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's true! If he weren't an evil bastard, he really could have done something good. Though I suppose over-hunting is the inevitable conclusion when two apex predators start working together rather than competing >_>

And yeah, I think that was the line, when they're in the graveyard and the hyenas are like, "Maaan, I HATE lions! They're stinky, and pushy, and man are they UUUUUGLY" and Scar's like, "AHEM. >___>" (paraphrased) They totally call him their pal.
