both are amazing-  but i must say the lighting (you know like on his legs ) on the left one is much better and makes more sense ? (you know some seriously light yellow clouds are going on behind him so XD) but the shadows on the right are better - the shading on simbas face is deeper.  hmmm overall the two have different 'feelings' or styles and both work really well its very hard to pic a favourite! I think that you could easily adopt the best of both and merge them to go even further- but seriously both are absolutely phenomal powerful images very well done Squish Hug 2 -  The Eye Poke

I have to say that this is one of my all time favorite images of all time. I actually really want to purchase a large print and have it in my home, cred to you obviously. Great work, inspiring, and always what I think of when I think of my favorite movie!

I love Simba's face in the newer one. It's much rounder. I also like that you made Mufasa darker, instead of light like it was. Although, I do like the old mane. The way it's being blown up. But, the recolor of it is nice. The original looked a bit too......anime? I s'pose. Not sure that's the word i'm looking for. BUT! I love the peice! =))

the right one is so awesome! The blues help make the warmer colors 'pop' more. Great stuff!

I like them both. The left one has a more unified colour pallet, but the right one has a different feel to it from the different colours used.
