We contacted him and here’s what he had to say about his amazing work,

For The Lion King, I always wanted to see the movie with humans. To see something that could celebrate the beauty and fantasy of this wonderful story, so I began the concept art and started with Scar and Simba. My good friend at Chocolate City Comics then asked me for Mufasa and Nala so I did those too.

They where real fun to do, I wanted to keep the original Disney color palette and focus more on getting the idea of the animal characters into humans. I am working on more and planning the full concept art with bodies just for personal project and fun.

    They are so believable I swear. I didn’t even need to see the tags below the pictures to know who was who… But Scar though, even as a human he still looks mean and devious. LOL!
