The Jungle Book - Shere-Khan by freakyfir The Jungle Book - Shere-Khan by freakyfir
One of our projects involved taking a popular childhood tale and giving it our very own twist. I picked The Jungle Book, because I remember how the talking animals used to captivate me as kid.

The terrifying Shere-Khan himself! This is definitely my favourite of the lot.

This is amazing! Just the concept of a robotic Shere-Kahn is ingenious and awesome. The art style really makes this amazing.

This is excellent. Really. One of my favorite Disney Villains just got better. I really enjoyed all the studies for this project but I am partial to this one only because of my fondness for the character to begin with. Again, great work! I only wish I had seen it sooner..

I was surprised he didn't have a cybernetic leg - he is Lungri after all - but he's certainly imposing.

hmm i did give that some thought but i felt maybe the jaw would make him more menacing as a game character.

What else can I say? The adaptation of Sahib Kipling's work here is wonderfully inspired and Khan is particularly imaginative. Salute.

I like it, bro! I do think his jaw could be a little less... I don't know, Crimson Chin-ish?
:iconcrimsonchinplz:
Less chin and more jaw would be best I think.

I also think his teeth & fangs should be longer and more visible. Make it really terrifying! Look out how this artist makes the teeth of her beasts very bold and scary: [link] & [link]
