Baloo 2.0



Here's my redesign of Baloo. Definitely doesn't hold a candle to the original, but it was fun to draw something while whistling "The Bare Necessities."

Enjoy!

Did you also draw this while wearing a grass skirt and coconuts? I'm thinking you did, 'cause how else could you channel Baloo so well? Hmmmm? Is he eating a paw paw or a prickley pear? Nice work!

I was wearing the grass skirt, but I just found out that I was supposed to wear the coconuts on my face! How embarassing... Baloo 2.0 is eating a paw paw/prickly pear crossbreed. They're called prickly paws and they taste like porkchops.

I'm horrified by Baloo's lack of manners. If chewing with your mouth open isn't polite, this is entriely offensive. His mouth is SO open that I can hear him chewing in the jungle from my front porch.

Simple and nice... cool design. Good work, Adrian. A pat on the back for you... a hearty belch for me.

I want a piece of that fruit. I like how you simplified him, but kept the real essence of the design. Perfect of TV design. Or maybe i have no idea what I'm talking about...

Thank you for making it the perfect size for a desktop. Love it!

Are you sure this isn't Baloo's american cousin, Ralph who lives in the zoo and has his meals catered every day? Just wondering.

Nice design and rendering as usual.

I like the simplicity also, and the use of the Big, medium and small shapes.

Simple and sweet! Reminds me I haven't eaten in a while. I'll have to eat with my mouth open in your honor. Nice one Adrian!
