Jungle Book: Monkey Abduction

By Carliihde
“Two of the strongest monkeys caught Mowgli under the arms and swung off with him through the treetops, twenty feet at a bound” -The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling p. 47

Here is the first in a series of 3 Jungle Book illustrations I did for my Story Adaptation class at the Joe Kubert school. I was heavily influenced by the BRILLIANT artwork and inking of Bernie Wrightson for this. Of course I twisted the style to my own but it was really fun doing all the little details and line work. Please full view to see all the work I put into this ha ha.

Comments and critiques always welcome
