My interpretation of Mowgli from the Jungle Book. Went for a slightly older age and different personality than the Disney one, obviously :)

Much truer to the literary Mowgli especially in the second book.

Would cooler if he wore shar khan’s skin like Hercules did after the lion slaying labor

In the book he does dance on the skin.

Mowgli in the original story never went in for so much decoration, but he was still a lot more kick-ass than Disney made him out to be.

I've been reading Tarzan over the past week and his similarities to Mowgli made me want to make a more fearsome Mowgli, that really takes on wolfish traits. This picture is SUPER COOL and really captures that idea. I want to write about such a version of him and this fearsome image will help me! So thanks!

You really did a great job with this *_*

I don't remember him being this....awesome. =O

Very nice pose, dynamic and threatening. I'd definitely want to have this guy on my side!
