The Girl by MistyTang The Girl by MistyTang
I had drawn this one just before going on vacation, I scanned it in just in case I had an urge to finish it. And, I did! So here we are, posting this one from California. :)

I adore The Jungle Book. It's just so much fun, and so wonderful to watch. Also it's my dad's favorite Disney film--he loves the music in it, and so do I. :heart:
Heheh, the siren song that the Girl does at the end is genius. Only this lovely little girl could've gotten Mowgli to leave the jungle. I refuse to acknowledge the name "Shanti" for the Girl. She will always be "The Girl" to me. :P

And the kiddies get their own little folder: [link]

That little lady had barely awoken my sexuality! It was genius, and it worked on me during my second viewing.

Nice drawing!!! I love "The Jungle Book", yet feel that it's one of Disney's most underrated animated films

Have you seen the live-action Disney's "Jungle Book"? That one's really good too. Although it does bother me a bit that the Girl gets whitewashed( [link] )
in that version: what difference in the story does her ethnicity really make?

But yeah, keep up the good work :)

Beautiful! I actually have "My Own Home" on my playlist; it's such a pretty song.

I refuse to acknowledge the name "Shanti" for the Girl.

You and me both. The sequel ruins her for me.

It's a gorgeous song. I love it to pieces!

Uhg, that sequel... I don't think it was the worst of the direct to video sequels, but still. It was really bad. I choose to ignore it completely. ;)

The nostalgia is strong with this one! My dad also loved Jungle Book, mainly cause of Louis Prima as King Louis. But I have fond memories of this girl and you re-created her perfectly, amazing job!

Yeah I gotta admit Shanti kinda feels to easy for them to pick. Maybe if she had been in the book and given a name I might think differently:XD:

:iconmistytang:
MistyTang Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013
Mm-hm. It's just the go-to name for Indian girls, I guess. :shrug: It's too bad she wasn't in the stories--it would have been interesting if Kipling had had the Girl in one or two.
