Jungle Book: Shere Khan

By Carliihde
“Up, dog!’ Mowgli cried. ‘Up, when a man speaks, or I will set that coat ablaze!’ Shere Khan’s ears lay flat back on his head, and he shut his eyes, for the blazing branch was very near.
-The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling p. 31-32

Here is the Third (and my personal favorite) 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.

Hello. I've started a new group for storybook artists ([link]). I would like to add some of your work to the gallery, and if you want you may become a member as well. :)
It's a new group, so obviously there isn't much. So feel free to decline.^^;
