When Jim was a little boy, he once found a book lost in the park
and since then he treasured it. First he made his parents read
from it, then little by little he learned to read himself, mainly
inspired by this book.

It was Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" and Jimmy loved all the
characters from it, but specially of course the main character
Mowgli.

He had a strange passion for him, the more he grew up the more
often he imagined him, it was a strange, confusing happiness and
sometimes he only needed to close his eyes...

"Akela, the grim old wolf who had never asked for mercy in his
life, gave one piteous look at Mowgli as the boy stood all naked,
his long black hair tossing over his shoulders in the light of the
blazing branch that made the shadows jump and quiver."


The book was full of some strange attractiveness and it felt
almost like its pages were made of magnet, not paper, and if he
didn't hold the book firmly enough in his hands, he could be
sucked through the pages right into the jungle world.

Of course, honestly it was the only book Jim has ever read, being
a poor beggar, and even that book was given to him by chance.

Opposites attract. 

P.S. If Mowgli sees me because of my white skin, he's gonna get me for a mate.

I too was especially entranced by "The Jungle Book" by Kipling when I was fairly young, and I possibly had similar feelings as Jim had for Mowgli. I was unable to express those feelings, though. I could wish that I could see a little farther into where Jim's fantasies were taking him and Mowgli. It would be quite beautiful, I'm sure.

It was my favorite book as a kid, too. I'm so very happy to meet another fan for whom this book was also some very special read in life as it was for me! I wish I could see where else I could take Jim's fantasies about himself and Mowgli but if I think of something in the future I will certainly do something with it :heart:

I know I sound repeticious, but:

You are truly marvelous.

Very cute story, I've sometimes felt that way when reading something that really gets me into it (if only I could get into them like this :D). I adore the softness and sensualness, the way Mowgli is holding Jim and Jim's hand on his. And their contrasting skin tones, uuuhhhhh man do I have a fetish for that :XD: Love their hair too, Mowgli's wild length and Jim's cultured curls, wish I could run my fingers through them. And of course another amazing job with their soft smooth supple bodies :heart:

Oh, thank you so much ^.^ I love the way you see this picture, the contrasts between their skin tones, hair and cultures, didn't see it this way myself and it just made me want to draw more fantasies about Jim and his favorite book character ^o^ :heart:

Hmhmhmhm, it's wonderful how others can see things you may miss and inspire you more :) It's great how you included those little nuances without realizing it: Mowgli's wildness (sun-darkened skin, long free hair, bigger muscular frame, impulsive and open) vs Jim's civilness (light skin, short cropped hair, slim toned frame, imaginative and shy); it even gives a message that the wild and the civilized can coexist in harmony :3

Both versions are absolutely gorgeous, and the story is just sweet and inspiring! I love this first version and the water effects at his waist. It's very beautiful in some odd way, haah.

So very glad you liked it! ^-^ The water at his waist is actually maybe something like oil, just to make it easier and more pleasant to do what they do in the other version :3 Thank you so very much for your kind words about this illustration ^-^ <3
