Naked Mowgli is naked. Well, wouldn't you be? And no, I'm not going to hashtag naked.

Still hard for me to picture any jungle boy without a loincloth. XD

really cool!!

I like his face and hair :) and definitely, naked is logical... I like the background, too, really nice composition!

Thank you!  I struggled with the background for a while but I think it turned out all right.

it did :) I like it, when I struggle with something but get it right after a few tries... it's really rewarding!

Definitely!  Always a learning experience either way.

The Naked version of Mowgli has, will & always become the definitive Mowgli. :nod:

It does make sense.

Especially if you're raised in the wilds with no awareness about yourself & with no clothing outlets, either. ;)

Exactly!

Uh, Huh. :nod:

Perhaps one day, when society becomes more clear minded, we could have a definitive Mowgli on the screen or TV. 8-)

Mmm, I'm not actually that interested in seeing a full-length movie of a fully naked kid, "clear minded" society or not.  I'm pretty fine with the decision to clothe him just a little on screen.  The character still shows through just fine.

Depends on how it was shown & animated. "DragonBall" had a fully naked Kid Goku during many scenes & nobody really caused WW3 to be created out of it. SO maybe there is hope for Humanity out there. ;p

Anime can get away with a looooot of things that other styles can't... not that that means someone SHOULD do something just because they can, ha.
