Sabra's Lullaby by MelodyoftheWolf Sabra's Lullaby by MelodyoftheWolf

This picture was painted with inspiration from the song, 'My Lullaby' from Lion King 2
The Lyrics were taken from it as well! They are NOT mine. However. I did replace certain phrases/names with members from the Resistance and Rebellion pack. So be sure to read the lyrics Sabra "sings" below ; )

First to get a better idea of Sabra's personality
Watch it
----> [link] <----
This is what inspired me to paint this


Now back to…



Sabra's Lullaby
"Iv'e been exiled
persecuted,
left alone with no defense;
when I think of what
the humans did,
I get a little tense.

But I dream a dream so pretty;
that I don't feel so depressed.
'Cause it soothes my inner puppy,
and it helps me get some rest.

The sound of Yunna's dying gasp!
Gunken's daughter squealing in my grasp!
The Resistance's helpless mournful cries!
That's my lullaby!

Now the past iv'e tried
forgetting, and my foe's I could forgive,
trouble is I know it's petty,
But I hate to let them live.

..Oh the battle may be bloody,
but that kinda works for me..

The melody of angry growls,
a counterpoint of painful howls,
a symphony of death, oh my!
That's my lullaby!

The pounding of the drums of war;
the thrill of Gunken's might roar!

The thrill of vengeance;

Testify!

I can hear the cheering;
Payback time is nearing,
and then our flag will fly,
against a blood red-sky!
That's my lullaby!



I incorporated every Rebellion member that was part of the very first enrollment of the group :iconforgotteneclipse:
Some of the darker Sparks who had rich black coats I lightened the fur up so you could see the character easier. Entro, buddy, I did the absolutely best I could. I made him a bit too light, but heavenly days he's got quite a design. Some as you can see are just heads. The bodies are hidden by parts of the cave that protrude upwards. I could not fit full bodies onto the 18"x24" sheet of watercolor paper I painted this on. I did the best I could with matching colors a long with size comparison.

These characters all belong to their owners. Except Sabra of course. She's my lovely. n-n

They are all part of the Rebellion pack, find them here: [link]

I enjoyed painting Jikkio. Quite a unique design he has. I do apologize however, I put that pink marking on the wrong side of his leg. Shoulda move it towards his chest a bit more. T^T Grr

Maybe. n-n I'd have to think of a good song for it to go with. Navy's personality doesn't match with Sabras/Zira's.

But definitely a good idea. If I am inspired by a song I definitely will.
