I must ask, why did you portray the wolves as pretty much North American timber wolves? They do not look anything like the wolves of India.

Also, your Hathi looks like an African, not an Indian elephant.

I suspect the only reason the original Jungle Books have never been cited for nudity and violence is that the moral campaigners involved in such things just assume the books are like the Disney version, so I guess that's one thing we can be grateful to Walt for.

I love those stories about feral children. I grew up with stories about Mowgli, Bomba, and Tarzan. In Europe, there is a feral girl popular in comic books named Pyrenee who is raised by a bear. The comic is not allowed in this new up-tight America, simply because this feral child is nude. Rudyard Kipling could not have published his jungle books in this oppressed America.
