Explanation: Yes, this is a flashback. Nuka was born in a litter of three cubs and is the only one who survived the first couple of days. He is a survivor, but remains weak and everybody is worried about him.
I swear I almost broke into tears sketching this page.
I never said it was Scars fault. Things just happen. Scar is simply sad at the loss of two cubs and fears Nuka might die soon after, since he is so weak. He might be blaming himself for not being able to remain the king of the pridelands, for not granting a better home for his family. Bit most of all he blames Mufasa and Simba.
I think you sorted it perfectly here! i think that because you actually nearly shed a tear drawing this, your emotions transmitted to this page, because it really is an emotional strip. i also thinks its really sweet you make Scar actually care for Nuka because he actually IS a parent to, (and i really don't need to say that nuka-cub is the most adorable and he looks so fragile too) great comic ^^ can't wait for more! hurry up and draw more xD
I think that he did love his family, but the darkness in him made it hard to express it. Well, in an open way at least. But he believes he does what is best for his family, even if they don't see it this way.
