My redraw of an old drawing from 1993. The original drawing was drawn on a letter to one of my aunts. I was 8 or 9 years old at that time.
This aunt (who I am also the closest with) gave me a bunch of old letters back when we saw each other again last Easter season. She told me that she found these old letters again while tidying out her appartment. I wrote those letters to her and her husband in the beginning of the 1990s.
Even though she likes the letters she felt more comfortable with giving them back to me as memories than keeping them for the next decades and not looking into them. I was very fine with the decision and I had a very good time reading them and finding more old, silly drawings on some of these letters.
One of these drawings is this one, including the characters Mowgli, Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther of the Disney movie "The Jungle Book".
My aunt, her husband and me had a close relation to this movie as they were the ones watching it with me in a cinema (and I loved the movie instantly) and her husband and me were like "real life" versions of Baloo and Mowgli, so much so that we called each other these names. I also guess that is why I drew this.
By the way: I know I cheated here a bit by not redrawing it with the same medium (coloured pencils) but I did it digitally so it'd be finished quicker.
Redraw done with tablet, SAI and Adobe Photoshop.
