Another post showing rough animation drawings by Milt Kahl for a Shere Khan scene.
This is Seq. 8.1, Sc. 102.
The tiger is interacting with Kaa, who has just said: "Shere Khan - what a surprise!"
The response in this scene is: "Yes, isn't it? I just dropped by. Forgive me if I interrupted anything."
Beautiful controlled head movement, and nice squash and stretch on the muzzle.
Inhale, as he turns his head screen left in anticipation of a right turn toward Kaa
By looking up toward the tree top he is letting the audience -as well as Kaa- know that he suspects something.
