Howdy everyone, I am back with some more drawing tutorials for the day and this time they are going to be on more Disney characters. Hey, I’m sorry if I am on a Disney character frenzy. I figured that these animated animals and humans need to make an appearance on DragoArt because they are very popular and funny. So with this first tutorial I will show you how to draw Mowgli from The Jungle Book. Now for those of you that have seen this movie you should know that Mowgli is the main character of the story. He is a young Indian boy that grew up in the jungle and was raised by pack of wolves. Father Wolf has raised this human boy and thinks of him as one of his own cubs. His wolf mother Raksha also loves the man cub very much and considers him as one of her pups as well. Unfortunately for Mowgli word has spread that a tiger named Shere Khan has returned to the jungle and has reason to believe that a human boy lives amongst the animals. This is very dangerous because he would surely kill the harmless boy in order to keep any kind of man out of his jungle even if that man is a boy. It is Bagheera’s job to take Mowgli back to the man village before Shere Khan gets a hold of him. The only problem with that is Mowgli doesn’t want to leave his jungle home. Mowgli is described as being a brave young boy that is as innocent as a baby. He is also very gullible and intellectually ignorant. He leaves his wolf family unknowingly aware that he was never to return home until he is told the sad news by his Black Panther pal Bagheera. Mowgli is an incredibly cute character that gets taken on an adventure before he realizes that maybe the man village is not such a bad place to be. I will show you how to draw Mowgli from The Jungle Book step by step. The instructions are easy to follow and each step has clear directions to help make this lesson a breeze. I will be back in a bit with more drawing goodies so stay tuned.
