I can't take credit for this sketch of Mowgli since I copied it from Milt Kahl one of Walt Disney's supervisory team of animators, known as Disney's Nine Old Men. The Nine Old Men were core animators at Disney from the early 1930s through late 1970's and 80's. They animated such classics as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, The Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, and The Rescuers.
"My final two cents worth of advice is to develop an all-consuming curiosity for things both exotic and ordinary. Read, observe, analyze, and become involved with a variety of interests. Study, practice, delve, probe, investigate, and above all, be flexible. Keep an open mind. The world is changing fast. Don't get caught in the corner of the ring." Ward Kimball
I'm an illustrator and graphic designer who is desperate to get back to the basics of pencil and paper! I'm challenging myself to sketch everyday for 40 days in hopes of regaining my overall skill, creativity, and wonder!
