Mowgli animation by Milt Kahl

Milt Kahl (Mowgli) from Victor Ens on Vimeo.

I don't know if this has been posted around, but it's always inspirational to look at some well-drawn animation. And of course Milt Kahl is the king of well-drawn animation! Check out the weight, timing and solid draftsmanship in this clip! We are not worthy. While you're looking at that, I'll be busy trying to get together some photos from CG Overdrive to post. Stay tuned!

    I just watched this clip 10+ times in a roll...simply amazing character animation. Thanks for posting!

  2. There's an elegance to it that is a joy to watch -- thanks!

  3. Hey Victor,

    Yeah, Milt was/is the king! We constantly studied his work back in animation school and felt extremely inspired....but also extremely intimidated!

    Hope you'll have a good trip.


  4. I always love this shot.

  5. Victor, thanks for posting that. I'd never come across it.

    Loved it so much I had to I call my wife in to look at all that fleshy animation.

    thanks for sharing.

  6. Watching that woke me up, thanks!

  7. This is nuts... Simply amazing!

  8. I used to love this sequence as a kid, even though I had little to no knowledge of weight, mass, and volume in animation terms at the time. Even now, I still love watching it.

    Thanks for posting this up!

  9. This animation is so good it makes me angry.
