For the Illustration course, I decided to Illustrate "The jungle book" thanks to my love for animals. This is a conceptual draft of Mowgli and Akela, to decide how I can draw them.
There are the Pencil draft and this one coloured on Photoshop.

I hope you like it. ^^

Oh, I love this. I am a big fan of Kipling's Jungle Book :heart:. And I am totally sick of that Disney version - it is really terrible what they have done to the characters.  :upset:

I like the fact that you did something different with his hair. ...And gave him a slouchy teenager-ish pose. Bloody kids! ...Good work :D :D :D

This very good. I like it. Did you know that the book of the jungle is called the jungle book in English and Mowgly name in English is Mowgli? By the way I see that Mowgli is holding a boomerang. Why is this?

Thanks!
Oh, I mistook. But Jungle Book- Book of jungle is the same meaning, isn' it?
By the way, I'm going to correct the mistakes. ^^

I drawed a boomerang becouse I wanted to make something in the Mowgli's hand.
I must read ( and buy) The jungle book yet, but when I was a children, I watched the japanese anime, and I remember that Mowgli had a boomerang.^^

Yes, I am big fan of the Japanese anime and I hope to be able to watch the Japanese version and understand it. I want to translate it into English subtitles. I want to do this because there are Engilsh DVD's.
