Mowgli and Baloo by kookybird Mowgli and Baloo by kookybird
Picture of Mowgli and Baloo the brown bear! ^^
Done with dilluted acrylic. I'm not too good at color, especially paint, but it's something i'd really like to get good at! Practice makes perfect i guess...
Dunno whether to ink it to make it stand out more (especially for mowgli who seems a bit faded!)... Plus scanner killed it a bit cos the paper had gone wavy ^^

Another good picture of the Wild Boy and the non-Blue Bear. =p

Would you ever re-scan this or remaster it someday to get rid of the wrinkles?

I'd probably do a whole new version, this one is pretty old, and I've learnt lots since. I'll give it a go at some point!

Another terrific Jungle Book image. And I'm sure Kipling did describe Baloo as a brown bear. Sloth bears are much smaller and have black fur and grey-brown snouts. (I only know that because I've just been watching a wildlife show.)

My only quibble with this picture is all the unused space around the edge. Apart from that, the dark marks caused by the wavy paper could be digitally erased from the white background, and what's left of them wouldn't show up so much on the figures. Anyway, leaving all that aside, great picture and I hope to see more soon.

Ta! yeah Baloo is definatly a brown bear, i checked the book first just in case and he's described as "the sleepy brown bear" ^^ And yeah does look a bit empty round the sides, i often leave pics unfinished cos im worried i'll cock the rest up lol

Wow! I love it. Although I always do like your drawings. Lol. By the way, I think heard somewhere that Baloo was a sloth bear. However, I am not sure. Then again I think the sloth bear is the only type of bear that lives in India.

Im not sure.. I did check the book first just to make sure, and its written "sleepy brown bear" when Baloo is first metioned.

Ok, I'm not sure either. Although, I'm not sure if brown or grey bears even exist in India. I think the sloth bear is the only bear that exists there. However, I'm not sure.

right... i looked up the bear thing to put my mind at rest, and it seems that there are 3 types of bears in india : the himalayan black bear, the sloth bear and...the brown bear! phew ^^ But hey i trust Kipling to know if there were brown bears in India, he lived there after all... Anywho..^^
