The Queen's Sister by KanuTGL The Queen's Sister by KanuTGL
Naanda by herself :meow:

Her design is pretty much based on older versions of Sarabi and for once I will say I'm proud of this. I'll even go as far as to say "use the design if you want to, you don't have to ask" :XD:

And for those of you who don't know, Naanda was the sister of Sarabi (and mother of Nala) in older versions of The Lion King scripts :) And any and all semi-official Lion King characters will gain popularity in the fandom - simple as =P

Awesome my story of Naanda is in love with taka . this makes Ahadi angry cuz Naanda has a different Dad from Sarabi her dad is a rouge that killed ahadis parents. so ahadi gave taka a scar for loving Naanda back and ahadi gave naanda a hole in her ear that makes her Zira.

Ohh! So Naanda is or was Nalas mother? Because I thought Nalas mother was Sarafina...

KanuTGL Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, Naanda was Nala's mother in early versions of the script, but she was evidently replaced with Sarafina later on :)

You drew her great:) I think they cut her from early production because she looks way too much like Sarabi. Could have confused kids, and well if she was the mother of Nala that would make Simba and Nala first cousins. Which would be completely wrong, so Disney ditched the idea.

I love the stripe she has, just amazing!

Indeed, I think the same thing. In one of the original scripts Simba and Nala were even outright referred to as cousins (!) so I'm real glad the writers came to their senses xD

Thank you very much! ^^

ThT's funny because in the games I used to play with my friend Sarabi and Sarafina were sisters.

Haha, that's another nice coincidence then :D Even though that does make Simba and Nala cousins... :XD:

Yeah. :) But they'd be cousions anyway if Scar was Nala's dad like some fans think. I don't think so to be honest.

The colors and linework are beautiful, and good on you for mentioning that Naanda was also Nala's mother. Virtually every Naanda picture I've seen describes Naanda as Sarabi's sister in the caption, even though in the newer of the two early scripts, she was apparently "de-siblified" (she's never called Sarabi's sister in the May 1990 script), and she was Nala's mother in both scripts. (There was also no character named Sarafina in the early drafts -- I wouldn't be surprised if they changed Naanda's name because it sounded so similar to Nala's.)

But yeah, at one point, Simba and Nala were indisputably cousins (although I think it's unclear whether they actually became mates in the earlier script where Naanda is Sarabi's sister). And here we thought the issue of Nala's father was a problem...

Thank you very much, Akril! :)

And yes, indeed :XD: It's been a while since I read the two scripts, but I'm certain they were referred to as cousins in one of them. I also think that in that same script Nala was somewhere also referred to as Simba's "childhood sweetheart"... I agree it wasn't obvious whether they became mates or not, but I think there were enough hints. I don't have the scripts on hand so I can't look it up, but that was my impression when I read it... So I'm real glad they changed that xP
