The Apollon Pride has been my pride since 2005, it started in The Lion King FanArt site. And since the first day l have made more and more characters for the pride. Sometimes it feels like l will never stop making characters, but despite them all l got some main characters that l draw more than others.
The key look for the apollon pride memebers is they have more the Sarabi look and body shape, also they all got natural colours. Never been fan of crazy coloured lions.
And they have alittle different markings, instead of the normal markings over the eyes on the lion king characters, these got just a spot over the eyes. The belly fur and paw fur colours are in difference shapes from character to character. Some got all the legs in paw colour..Others got almost nothing. But again they all got natural brown to light beige colours.
The Story is still in sketches and not complete yet.
But the idea is that they live in a pride in the old Africa, its an old pride don´t know where it started. The pride is surrounded by a big mountain chain and the sea.
They don´t get many problems with other prides since they have to cross the mountain chain to confront the pride. But they do have a pride on the other side that really want to take over or some of the Apollon land. l don´t have the story clear there yet, but hopefully it will come to me soon. The Apollon Pride is a very friendly and calm pride, its very big. Most new comers are welcome in the pride, even cubs that don´t have a pride member as parents are welcome. Most lionesses in the pride are good hunters and have not problems bring home the bacon. The males are as normal the pride "soldier" they mostly patrolling the land, the pride leaders got each there own post they call home and have there little family. But when its time for law changes or its time to assemble the pride, they meet at the kingdoms "castle" The Apollon Rock, where the king and queen lives.
Each little family got there own story, sometimes they come together as a once hole story, but most of the time they don´t have much to do with each other.
One is about a mother her name is Anq and her son Rius. Rius has a thing for running away when he is pritty small its easy to track him down since he cant walk fare. But as he gets older and more faster its getting harder to find him. Anq is getting tired of his games, since he most of the time runs off when the weather is bad, she really don´t like the rain. More of this story comes later in another blog.
Another little story is about a lion called Sketch (yes this name can be confusing but its his name) and a lioness called Titi. Sketch is born outside the pride, before he was born his mother went out of the pride to seek for a future there. She met another male lion and they had a romantic time and she got pregnant with Sketch (about his father is unknown) after a while she gets back to the apollon pride with Sketch. He grows up in the pride as a strong and very handsome lion.
Titi is the prides best huntress, cause she is fast and strong. She is born in the pride, she is very committed to her family and pride. She grows up to be a beautiful lioness, light fur and slim but muscular figure. She and Sketch becomes a pair.. More of this story later in another blog.
There is a story about the eldest lion pair in the pride.
Ousa and his wife Orld, they are from the generation that went back to the apollon land after a huge journey.
Not sure if he was the first king after they came back. He is the eldest and most wise lion in the pride today, but he always has a story to tell the younger cubs in the pride.
He has two grand kids that loves his story Yers and Opac, they also get into trouble cause they try out some of the same things he did.
That is some of the main characters and there story, l will get back with more information about them more detailed. And more about each character.
