Hey, Mister! - Kiara and Kovu by ShimiArt Hey, Mister! - Kiara and Kovu by ShimiArt
EDIT2: WOW! 4000+ views and 600+ favs! And sooo many comments! Thank u so much guys!

- Hey, mister! Wait, wait, don't go away! Wooow, i've never seen you in the Pridelands before! Are you from another pride? From the Outlands, right? My daddy told me that…
- You'd better leave me alone, little furball.
- …that you, outlanders, shouldn't be here, but you guys come here pretty often, don't you?…
- And you won't stop chattering, will you?!

Come on, Kovu, we all know you can't resist Kiara's naive cuteness ^^

A what if scene with Kiara and Kovu. What if Kovu was a little bit older than Kiara? That would explain some plot holes.. and change the whole SP plot xD Also, i recolored Kiara a bit. Mixed some Simba and Nala's colours and gave her uncoloured paws 'cause i can. I like her much better this way! And i darkened Kovu's pelt a bit, as it darkens with age. The SP artists didn't pay attention to that, however.
And oh, i modeled the bg from the first film. I just wanted to show the Pridelands, not a random land.

EDIT: Decided to copy that here. It's something about the plot holes.
Actually, do you remember the first film, when Scar's reign ended? Zira said that Kovu was born right before that, so Scar chose him as his heir. Okay, even if we imagine that he was born one day and then next day Scar died... well. Then there was the scene when Simba and Nala had a cub - and we see a flourishing land. It couldn't become that green in a few days. I guess it needed at least a few months. So imagine - Kovu had months to grow up. And Kiara was born only then, or maybe even later, but let's ignore all those differences in cubs at the end of the 1st film and at the beginning of the 2nd. So, okay, let this cub be Kiara - but anyways, Kovu would be older than her, and look older. But they look like they're just the same age. Now that's the point - he should look older.

Great art. :)
But technically Kovu was 3 to 5 months older than Kiara, in the film too. He had to be, as lionesses carry their cubs for 3-4 months and as Scar hand-picked Kovu he had to be born some time before Simba returned.
Just for some reason Kovu wasn't any bigger than her, (I personally explain that away with lack of quality food for all his childhood.)
Even the voice actor's were a few years apart, (Kiara's 10-years old, Kovu's 13-years old) which I take as another indication that Kovu was supposed to be a bit older than her. :)

I always thought Kovu was older too. Here's my theory.
It took 4 months for the pridelands to fully recover. Nuka had been 2 weeks old when Scat died, and Kovu was born on the 3rd month. I say this not for your reason, but because of his huge hair tuft. It would have taken a while to grow all that hair, no? So I think he's just a shortie. Same goes for Kopa and Malka.

So I take it you're not a fan of Kiara or The Lion King II, right?

This is an amazing drawing! If you do the math, kovu should probably be a lot older than kiara. Plus, a scene like this in the movie would be so cute!
