Jungle Book: Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Carliihde Jungle Book: Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Carliihde
“As he held he closed his jaws tighter and tighter, for he made sure he would be banged to death, and, for the honor of his family, he preferred to be found with his teeth locked.”
-The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling p.163 (Rikki-Tikki-Tavi)


Here is the second in a series of 3 Jungle Book illustrations I did for my Story Adaptation class at the Joe Kubert school. I was heavily influenced by the BRILLIANT artwork and inking of Bernie Wrightson for this. Of course I twisted the style to my own but it was really fun doing all the little details and line work. Please full view to see all the work I put into this ha ha.

Comments and critiques always welcome

I totally thought Rikki-Tikki-Tavi was it's own book, for whatever reason.

Amazing details and feeling of what's going on!
I would critique, but I really would have no idea what to say, I'm just starting experimenting with ink.
