Your Best Guess - Brothers Contest - WINNERS!

:bulletblue:My Gallery:bulletblue:Points Commissions:bulletblue:"Betrothed" - My Lion King Comic:bulletblue:Adoptables:bulletblue:FAQ:bulletblue:

Hey there! And here's the moment you've all been waiting for! True to my word, I judged these last week, but haven't gotten around to announcing the winners until just now. :winner:

This was SUPER tough to choose! Everyone put a ton of effort into their entries, I felt bad having to choose just three. Many entries used a comic page format, and that takes serious effort and time. For everyone who did that, you deserve kudos for even thinking of entering a comic page. Those ain't no joke. (And all of yours were awesome! :squee: For some of you, it was even your first time!) Overall, I judged based on creativity and effort into your idea, plus the concept behind it. Again, I didn't judge based on how right you were in your guess. Overall, I loved EVERYONE'S entries. There were some that were funny, clever, and suspenseful. Great job, all of you! It was so super hard to just choose three. I can't stress that enough. :phew:
Okay, here we go....

The Winners Are Below

Brothers - Page 38 by Nala15
(The page that inspired the contest.)

WINNERS:

Your Best Guess-Brothers by RaineySkye by :iconraineyskye:
First Prize
This comic is one I kept returning to again and again during the contest as more entries came in and during judging. The concept is well thought out, the comic page flows great, and the twist at the end is a HUGE shock! :wow: REHEMA!!! :squee: How we've missed you! :love: And what is this? It looks like a cub Zira is with him... Hmm... :plotting: While there were several entries that made this their guess (Rehema and/or Zira), this one really does it well. It's suspenseful, unexpected, and a great guess all around! Congratulations!
Your winnings:
A full-color pic of one character (with a background) or a custom character from me! :D
A mention of your entry on "Brothers" page 39.
A full-color single character picture, shaded with a BG, from :iconjennidash:
200:points: from :iconjuffs:
A full-color picture of one character, shaded with a BG, from :iconminuetofmoon:
50:points: and a full-color single or two characters picture, cell-shaded, filtered(integrated to bg), with a BG from :iconmidlasoc:

Brothers - My Guess - contest entry for Nala15"We're here!" Taka called out as he ran ahead.
A gorge opened up to them like a hungry mouth. Mufasa, brother of Taka and heir to the throne of Pride Rock, caught up to him with Sarabi and Sarafina following. The four lion cubs stopped at the edge and looked over the steep hill.
"This is the place?" Mufasa asked, "Where's the prey?"
"Right over..." Taka pointed his muzzle to a wildebeest herd, "...there."
Mufasa's eyes widened, "No way. We can't hunt wildebeests! Look at those hooves!"
"What? Are you scared?" Taka teased his older brother.
"No! Of course not! I'm only brave when I have to be!" Mufasa retaliated.
Sarafina's cheery smile wearied away into a worried frown, "I'm with Mufasa on this one. I don't think this is a good idea."
Taka started trotting towards the herd, "Only the strong survive, and bravery makes the strong stronger."
"Taka wait!" Mufasa cried out when Taka ran to one of the wildebeests.
Taka let out a small roar but it didn't even stir a calf. He tried again. Taki

Second Prize
For all the wonderful art entries that I had to judge, there were several exceptional story entries - some of which were written to go with a picture that wasn't in comic form. But the one that I kept coming back to was this piece. At least one other guess incorporated the gorge, but this one did it very, very well. It has wonderful description of the settings and characters, so much so that it looks like a page out of my script. :XD: And wow! The foreshadowing in this is amazingly well done! There's echoes from the past and the future that really hit home for me. It's a very well written story that tempts me to turn it into a comic - and an overall great guess! Congrats!
Your winnings:
A custom character or simple OC ref sheet from me!
A mention of your entry on "Brothers" page 39.
A non-shaded picture of a single character with a transparent BG from :iconjennidash:
100:points: from :iconjuffs:
A non-shaded picture of one character (no BG) from :iconminuetofmoon:
50:points: and a full-color picture of a single character, soft shaded, filtered with a BG from :iconmidlasoc:

The elephant graveyard by Swequine by :iconswequine:
Third Prize
There were a few guesses that included the elephant graveyard, but this one I think went the extra mile in explaining how the cubs would get there. They follow a dying elephant. That's genius! And very clever in connecting the grass plains with the dark, gray environment. What also kept drawing me to this comic was all the effort put into it. And from a first-time comic artist too! The panels are a bit jumbled near the start, but that's a nitpick compared to the rest. The cubs' personalities really show through, as well. The end of comic leaves a bone-chilling "what happens next?" thought and adds suspense to the whole scenario. Congrats on a job well done!
Your winnings:
A character headshot with simple background from me!
A mention of your entry on "Brothers" page 39.
Line art of a single character from :iconjennidash:
50:points: from :iconjuffs:
Digital line art of one character from :iconminuetofmoon:
50:points: and a small speed-paint of a single character, soft shaded, filtered with a simple, blurry, painted BG from :iconmidlasoc:

A Rouge: Conest Entry for Nala15 by X-Shazzii and Liars: Contest entry for Nala15 by X-Shazzii by :iconx-shazzii:
Special Prize
A special "Brothers"-comic-related prize! (I'll explain on page 39, Shazzii.)

My Best Guess Brother's Contest (Entry 1) by Mytokyokitty and My Best Guess Brother's Contest (Entry 2)Taka: Hey guys, come here! Hurry!
Sarafina: What do you think it is Sarabi?
Sarabi: I don't think it's anything to get excited about.
The cubs head towards Taka who is staring at something moving around in the ground as if it was burrowing. They continued to watch until it settled.
Taka:  Look what I found. What is that thing?
Mufasa: I'm not sure, but we shouldn't bother it.
Sarabi: Yeah, just look at the size of it.
Sarafina: It doesn't look friendly either.
Taka: Well I'm curious to see what it is.
Taka beings to approach it, but Mufasa stops him.
Mufasa: Are you crazy?! What if it attacks you?
Taka: Well if you're so brave, why don't you go and touch it. I dare you!
Mufasa: What?! Mom and Dad said we're not supposed to approach strange animals!
Taka: What's the matter, you chicken?
Sarabi: What's a chicken?
Sarafina: You got me. :shrug:
Mufasa: Forget it Taka. We're only go

Your Best Guess Contest Entry by saraviuchiha by :iconsaraviuchiha:
My Contest Entry: Best Guess of BrothersThe future king of the Pridelands did not like the tone of his tricky younger brother. True that brothers would compete with one another. It would always take its course. They would always learn from what turned into something serious. Mufasa and Taka were no exception. Not only did being the younger brother and not the future king made Taka slowly burn a fire of hate, but there was something else. It was obvious by their images—Mufasa having golden fur and a red mane growing while Taka had dark orange fur and a black mane growing—that they were nothing alike.
The day before was spent by them arguing about who was better at a test with hunting and ended with Mufasa listening in on a conversation between his parents and Taka. Even Mufasa knew the point that Taka tried to make that night. Mufasa now had a bad feeling. After his father Ahadi tried to get information from hyenas, the brothers were met again by Sarabi, to whom Mufasa was betrothed and they grew their friendship,

A loner for nala15What do you think it Sarabi? Sarafina bounced as she ran to taka. I don't think it's anything to get excited about Sarabi said as she gave a look. The cubs saw a pile of blood at Taka's paws it was fresh not old.. What did you do!!!! screamed Mufasa as Sarabi took a horrified gasp. A dead lioness lay in front of them with hyena marks all over her. I didn't do anything! Taka yelled i found her here she was already dead!. They killed her and daddy a weak voice said sadden and scared. Who are you Mufasa said shaking. A rouge cub around Taka's age stepped from the body she was crying her ear torn and marks all over her. Hyenas......the..y...ca..me..from..th..e. It's ok your safe now Taka said in the softest voice ever spoken. What's your name cub Sarafina said .My name is Zira she said about to bawl out again. Cry all you want taka said crying with her as he hugged her as she cried her eyes out if my mother died too I would cry until my heart was flooded.

Entry for Nala15's contestTaka: Hey guys come here !
They bounced to Taka while Sarafina asked:
-What do you think it is Sarabi ?
-I don't think it's anything to  get exited about.
Taka was watching a rogue lioness and her cub approaching the Pridelands, exausted and starving, barely walking. Taka wanted to get a bit closer, but Mufasa stopped him:
-What do you think youre doing ?
- I am trying to get CLOSER you knucklehead 
-But what if they are dangerous, thy could kill you !
-They are weak Mufasa, i am going down there !
-Fine then, Sarabi, go alert my father right now.
-Alright Muffy, i am on my way.
As Taka approached the lioness, he noticed that they are brownish red, just like Taka. When he got close enough, Taka yelled:
- Who are you ?
-I am Furaha, and my daughter is Ujuzi ? Who are you ?
Taka showed himself to them, showing them that he is not a grown up, but a cub. Furaha sat there waiting for his answer, but not too suprised to see a cub wander around them. As Taka got brave enough to answ

Mufasa ran faster, the two young lionesses behind him, as his brother called out for him again. He felt his heart race, thinking something was seriously wrong and raced over the see what the problem was.
“Taka! Are you alright..?? What is it!” he yelled, finally catching up to his red furred brother. Taka was looking at something through a tuft of long grass, and used his tail to signal for his brother to come forward further.
“Look at this...I've never seen creatures like these!” the red cub said, softly. He wasn't sure if what he was seeing would harm them or not. Mufasa crouched slightly and inched forward for a look, Sarabi and Sarafina copying him. He shoved just a portion of his head through the grass next to Taka, and his eyes widened. He could hear the lionesses gasp with surprise beside him. Mufasa didn't even notice Zazu landing back on his shoulder, a nervous shudder going through the hornbill's body.
“What....are they?

Hello!
You can call me Nala. :aww: I've been drawing my whole life. I started doing digital art in 2007, and have been learning lots of new techniques, experimenting and striving to improve my skills since 2006. When I'm not drawing, I'm writing. When I'm not doing either of those things, I'm working or relaxing. But sometimes I write and draw at the same time. It's called comic creating. :D

I started my first, full-scale Lion King comic in September 2010. The comic is called "Betrothed" and I dedicated it to a fellow artist and friend of mine who passed away just days before I posted my first page. :( RIP, Simbamarasa. :tears: I miss you.
On a happier note, my comic was a HUGE success (much bigger than I ever anticipated), and wrapped up in December 2012. BUT, it inspired a sequel, which began pre-production in July 2012 and is currently in actual production. The comic is called "Brothers". Check it out and let me know what you think. I recommend reading "Betrothed" first to have full enjoyment of its sequel, but it isn't entirely necessary.

When I'm not making art for myself or doing comics, I'm doing :points: commissions, entering contests, and offering prizes and adoptables.

Thanks for visiting my page! :wave:

And yes, I do return the llama badges. :D

Well, I was afraid that you might have thought I was being sarcastic in the last comment I left you, in case you thought that, I wasn't, I really didn't know about those lion maturity facts, I have so many views on TLK that people think is weird, but I believe what I want to believe about it, anyway, the only thing that would have been accurate to me is that they have to exist before the movies had been made, but I can't change the dates, too many people have already seen them.

I'm not mad at all. I just think your information is inaccurate. You can change the dates. Like with corrections or something. It's like someone saying they thought all small birds could fly and posted something about it. Then they found out some small birds CAN'T fly... Do you continue with what you've already posted because "too many people have already seen it" or do you tell them the truth?
