In His Arms by KhanasGhost In His Arms by KhanasGhost
Scar looked down at his young nephew snuggled into his dark mane, ever so content sleeping in his arms.
He could not help but notice the pure, naive innocence that the cub possessed.

Simba truly loved him.

That knowledge, if but for a moment, was able to melt the coldness and hatred that Scar held for him.

And he smiled

Thought that maybe even Simba's young charm could work on his uncle sometimes^-^

Who knows, maybe he was, just for a second anyways XD
Man, there's so many things I love about this pic that I don't know where to start :XD: First, I love pictures that show Scar having a softer side for his nephew. I think maybe in some hidden way, he liked the cub. In The Madness of King Scar he feels bad about having nobody to love him, and you can tell Simba loved his weird uncle XD.  
Second, I love how you draw and color Scar! I like the glow in his eyes (his eyes are always opaque in the movie) and the fact that you can see his real fur colors. He is so often in the shadows, both literally and metaphorically, that you forget that his mane is dark brown ^^

Really? Every time he was shown, at least in the well lighted scenes, his mane was always black. The only reason I used dark brown instead of black was because it tends to be easier to shade and highlight for me, so I will try to avoid using a pure black unless I really have to. Say on the lineart for the eyes and mouth.

Thank you so much for the kind comment, I really appreciate it and glade to hear you  enjoy the pic!:heart:  
You are welcome ^^. Yeah, he has a dark brown mane, though it's really difficult to notice because, even in the scenes when he is in broad daylight, like before the stampede with Simba, he is under some shadows (in this case a tree). The only scene I found in which his he is in full daylight and his colors are shown is at the end of his conversation with Mufasa, right before Zazu says "Oh dear. There's one in every family". I'd send a screenshot, but I don't know how to do so with DA.

I looked up some screenshots myself and found one that showed it perfectly. It was the scene where Scar comes to Mufasa informing him about the stampede.
Never noticed that before and I've watched that film many times, must never registered.
Learn something new everyday^-^
Holy muffins this is such a breathtakingly beautiful, and heartwarming scene:iconiloveyouplz:
I wish Scar was a loving uncle in the movie:iconfoxcryplz:

Beautiful, EXCELLENT work on this!

It would have been nice to have at least one moment where he was a caring and loving uncle, but then again it would have taken away the whole plot about him hating and wanting the poor cub dead.

Thank you very much, glade that you like it!:heart:
