Jungle Book: Shere Khan by Carliihde Jungle Book: Shere Khan by Carliihde
“Up, dog!’ Mowgli cried. ‘Up, when a man speaks, or I will set that coat ablaze!’ Shere Khan’s ears lay flat back on his head, and he shut his eyes, for the blazing branch was very near.
-The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling p. 31-32

Here is the Third (and my personal favorite) 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

Hello. I've started a new group for storybook artists ([link]). I would like to add some of your work to the gallery, and if you want you may become a member as well. :)
It's a new group, so obviously there isn't much. So feel free to decline.^^;

This version of Shere Khan makes the Disney version of Shere Khan look more like an English Duke. If Jeremy Irons voiced Shere Khan, man would it be terrifying.

This is great! And so close to being perfect, but I would lose the line-work that outlines the fire. The rest of the lines look great, especially on the tiger.
