I just want to say you did a very outstanding job on drawing this picture and the characters in it too. :):clap:

Funny thing is I'm doing my own anthro version of the Jungle Book but with a more Native American feel to it.:)

Thanks a lot! The concept of the drawing is mine but the design of the main characters was made by another illustrator, I just had to follow the models ;)

You're very welcome. Just wondering, do you know where I might find more of this story?

This is an Italian publication, I think there is also an English version but I'm not sure if you can still findit... you might try on Amazon, searching "Geronimo Stilton - Jungle Book" ;)

Those lions look kind of out-of-place in the jungle.

Where did you see lions? They are Bagheera and Baloo, a black panther and a bear.

Well, what is that thing on the right then? Last time I checked cats do not possess head hair.

On the right, it's Baloo..anyway I didn't invent the concept of those characters, I just have to draw them following the models given by the editor. Complain with him, if you don't like the style ;P

Hmmm...we shall see if it is only sold in Italy/Europe.

I think it is only a matter of time before it gets to America and Asia.

Thank you! I think that this series called "The Classic of G.Stilton" is not selled abroad..but "never say never" ;)
ammeyellah's avatar
Really? There's definitely a Geronimo Stilton series over here. It stars mice . And every other sentence has some reference to cheese or paws.

...They aren't exactly the most well-written books. But I like this version.

Yes, Geronimo Stilton books are traslated abroad..but I think that this series in particular (that shows famous novels' adaptation in Stilton's style) is selled only in Italy :aww:

Beautiful illustrations! Are you going to colour them?
roby-boh's avatar
roby-bohProfessional
Thanks!
No, I don't do colours; basically it's all about the time, the editor needs to have several people that work at a same illustration..just like an "assembly line" ^^
savvy-weasley's avatar
Ahh! I see! Well, it's gorgeous anyhow! :)
