okay but i love this part of the circle of life so much because it sums up mufasa’s character in less than 8 frames. it’s an excellent study in first impressions with one of your main characters so please take note

we can really take two things away from this scene. it represents how mufasa treats his subjects, but it also shows the dignity mufasa extends for those who are clearly not as powerful as he is. from a non-lore related standpoint you’ve got this massive hulking lion and this tiny fragile bird, so your first thought is “well some fucker’s gonna get eaten here and it’s probably not the carnivore.” the way they set it up is that mufasa’s towering over him, and zazu’s so insignificant. mufasa looks at him at first like he’s almost angry at him for being in his presence. from a lore standpoint there’s the idea that the great and mighty king does not have any time of day to give to seemingly unimportant/random members of the kingdom, especially on what is obviously an important occasion for him, even when zazu makes the effort to bow to him. he comes across the way scar is revealed to be when he’s eventually in charge. 

BUT THEN HE DIPS HIS HEAD AND SMILES. he smiles! and it’s that big ole mufasa smile we all know and love. he acknowledges zazu’s effort and reciprocates with the same cordiality, the same respect. he doesn’t see zazu as an employee or a servant or just another subject in the sea of subjects travelling to pride rock. he sees him as a friend. it instantly informs you of what their relationship is and how mufasa treats those who live in his kingdom, and this is only further emphasised when he hugs rafiki two seconds later. they nailed mufasa’s character perfectly and made him immediately likeable. i don’t think i’ll ever fall in with a disney character as quickly as i did with mufasa.

anonymous asked:

can you just tell me about your cats,, no specific reason i just,, really like cats


nihon: currently shoving her ass in my face as we speak. on the surface she seems fuckin awful and super distant and like she hates everyone. if anyone is visiting or any of the family members that aren’t me or my dad are near her she hides completely or just sits and glares in the dark she’s never hissed or scratched at a human in her life tho but i’ve met people who think she does. in reality ?? the most affectionate fuckin cat u will ever meet. in terms of my dad he gets near her all the time to pet her and she’ll sometimes hop up on things to meet him. but in terms of me if i call her, make certain sounds, pat the surface next to me, or wiggle my fingers, she will come racing over meowing and already purring. she will stop at no length to get into my lap and have complete ownership of it (know the exact angle to fall over to launch my tablet out of my lap to take it’s place) if she’s in my room with me she won’t allow me to use my hands for anything except petting her and will chase and grab my hands to press them against her head. she chirps all the time she’s so cute. if she can’t reach my hands she’ll wander around in circles around me rubbing her face against everything chirping and purring and if i walk around the house without anyone else around she will stop at nothing to follow me around. she absolutely loves loves LOVES zippers any and all zippers she’ll try to chew.

vlad: my big baby boy. he’s like the ‘mom friend’ of all the cats. he’s a big hulking lion-looking fella but he meows like a squeaky toy as it finishes re-inflating itself. my mom and sister think he’s a total asshole bc he’s the one who breaks things the most and pushes them over but he can’t help it!!! he loves exploring and being high up and he’s so big and just doesn’t seem to know his own size sometimes things get knocked over or he misses where he’s jumping and hits things. he’s the smartest of the cats like he has learned how to properly use doorknobs and how to open cupboards (he loves slamming them shut over and over) but he’s my big ol’ dummy baby bc he’s a goof. he’s so affectionate with all the cats he’ll walk up to them all the time for grooming and cuddle with them constantly. he’s super neat too like if one of the cats doesn’t bury their business he’ll go and do it for them (he’s tried to bury the dog’s messes on the carpet too. like he literally scratches @ the carpet) and i notice he tends to shove all the toys into single sections of the room. speaking of toys: we have three boxes downstairs. one that’s pretty big, one that’s in the middle. and a super tiny one. i have watched him step into the super big one and then step into the tiny one to try and lay down but he kinda spills over all the sides. he’s a gentle big boy he might bat at you or the other cats but he almost never uses claws. i think he’s actually scratched me maybe a handful of times on accident while rough-housing (he likes to wrestle some) or bc i accidentally stepped on his toe but other than that he just. smacks his paw into ur face. or he’ll grab and hold ur hand in place so he can chew on your nails (he doesn’t break them just chews). he’s really in-your-face like will get suuuuper close to your face and just stare at you or he’ll start licking ur nose. is not afraid of the vaccuum cleaner but if you get close enough he’ll go sit somewhere else and watch u

tux: basically pudding in a cat-shaped bag. he’s the neediest of all the cats (note: not the most affectionate. the neediest) he constantly needs attention and to be held and will try and trip people up by basically sticking tot heir legs. he LOOOOVES being picked up and will headbutt anyone who comes near him whether they’re expecting it or not (my mum hates this he’s almost broken her glasses before). he tends to be the loudest and will sit meowing @ the top of the stares when he wants outside, he’s the least afraid of the dogs and will just sit and provoke them behind the stairs-gate. none of the other cats really like him much (well except for vlad) and either he swats at them or they swat at him so i try and go down every once in awhile and give him extra cuddles so he doesn’t get lonely. he’s @silentlytalkingoutloud‘s cat but she couldn’t take him when she moved out so he’s staying here ‘til she can find a place that allows pets.

petra: ohymgosh such a soft sweetie. she’s kinda chubby and her fur is so soft so it adds up to the cuddliest feeling cat u’ll ever meet. but she doesn’t really like being handled. she haaates being picked up and she cats having her head touched but if you scratch along her back or her sides she loves that so much and she’ll fall over leaning into ur hand. she’s a big goofball and super talkative and has super expressive sounds and will talk with you for a pretty long time if you meow back n forth with her (note: vlad and nihon also do this but she does it the most) when she plays it’s hilarious bc she hunkers down and wiggles her butt and her eyes get HUGE (note she’s a tortoise shell so she kinda looks like toothless) before she pounces. has a tendency to tear across the house at lightning speed and maimed one of my friends slightly during D&D bc she ran across his lap and scared the shit out of all of us. i think she’s the friendliest of all the cats towards strangers, vlad second. the only reason she beats him is bc she’ll just treat them like anyone from the family while vlad doesn’t quite do the rolling yet that she does. her and vlad are actually the closest of all the cats i think and if you go downstairs more than likely you’ll see them wrapped up in each other sleeping

it’s a perfectly nice space day at the space castle when suddenly everything is shaking and falling apart as the roar of a pissed off lion reverberates through the corridors. the noise comes from the infirmary. the hangar and the infirmary have become one room now, as have the other rooms between them, courtesy of large lion-shaped holes connecting them. one of the cryogenic pods is lying in the middle of the room, clearly having been ripped from its station. wires are still sparking from the destroyed machinery. the fucking red lion herself is hulking over two shivering figures on the floor, her lower body still in the dance hall, her tail in the kitchen.

everything is quiet.

a part of the metal ceiling crushes down.

Coran screams.

Allura shuts down.

Shiro cries.

Pidge and Hulk deal.

everyone screams when the red lion opens her mouth to fire up a heat beam. blankets and canisters of hot spacegoo soup are set flying at the shivering duo in the middle of the room. the screaming continues.

Lance and Keith learn that making out against an active cryogenic pod is never a good idea.

“Come on, Bruce!” You whine as you give Bruce your best puppy dog eyes.

“I don’t understand how you love those Disney songs, they brainwash children.” Bruce teases you. You have no idea why, but for some reason lately, you’ve been obsessed with Disney movies and their songs more than ever before. Bruce knows that, so he gives you an even harder time, probably at the fact because you’re an adult who enjoys those songs more than their targeted audience.

“They’re fun, okay? Stop being a stick in the mud. I promise it’s the last time I’ll make you watch these movies.” You plead as pick up DVDs of various Disney movies such as Mulan, The Lion King, and Aladdin.

“You promise? I’ll doubt that will happen.” Bruce chuckles as he rolls his eyes. “Fine. We can watch them, [Y/N].”

“Yes!” You laugh as you rush to the kitchen and begin making movie snacks.


You snuggle up against Bruce as you watch the opening of The Lion King, humming Circle of Life. Your head is rested on his chest as you can hear his heart beat, relaxing you. He grabs your hand as he rubs his thumb over your knuckles, relaxing you even more. Bruce’s body radiates heat, making him your warm teddy bear at the current moment.


“I’m gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware. Well, I’ve never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair! I’m gonna be the mane event like no king was before! I’m brushing up on looking down, I’m working on my roar!” You sing along, having the biggest smile on your face. This was one of your favorite songs, so you knew every lyric. You loved it so much you even sang in different voices to represent each character and that made Bruce hysterical.  

“Oh my god. This is out of control [Y/N].” Bruce laughs as you continuing singing.

“Everybody look left , everybody look right, everywhere you look I’m standing in the spotlight! Not yet!” You begin laughing at Bruce’s terrified facial expressions as he watches you sing. “Oh, I just can’t wait to be king!” You mix laughter and singing as you finish the song.

“I feel like that oddly made you cuter, which I didn’t think was possible.” Bruce says as he pulls you closer, your heart flutters as you feel his strong arms hold you as you feel safer.

“Shut up you dork.” You chuckle even though you feel your ears getting warm.


“Why did he have to die!?” You cry out. Even after seeing it thousands of times, you still feel like you’re heart is getting stepped.

“Babe, it’s okay” Bruce says as he runs his fingers through your hair.

“Still, it’s not fair. How could they include that in a movie for kids!” You say, trying to reason with him.

“It was 21 years ago babe” Bruce laughs, continuing to mess with your hair.

“Don’t sass me Banner.” You smirk as you wrap your arms around his waist. 


i promised myself that once Season 2 of Hannibal was closer i could start drawing HanniMyth stuff again

i didnt want to make Hannibal a Wendigo because that felt like cheating so i decided on a Manticore instead. 3 rows of teeth, hulking lion body, literally a bastardization of ‘man eater,’ perfect beast for Dr. Lecter. i tried to draw him with and without the big poofy lion mane, to see which one i preferred. i also gave him a longer body, owing to the fact that he’s a lion and standing on his hind legs isnt his preferred walking style (and boy he can run when on all fours, look out.)

i DO have the other characters plotted out for their designs, i just need to draw them ughhh

More HanniMyth stuff
