This orangutang made by Lestrange Absurde is giving me very strong The Jungle Book vibes. King Louie was added to Rudyard Kiplings original story. King Louie has been portrayed as an orangutang in the 1967 version, and a gigantopithecus in the 2016 remake. This creation by Lestrange Absurde looks soo sweet and gentle. There is a rediculous amount of brilliant modified plate use. Just look at the fur, bottom lip, nose, fingers & toes and last but not least that cute as a button belly button.
Referencing the 2016 Disney live action version of Rudyard Kipling’s The Junglebook, Jellyeater leads the viewer’s eye into the action in his model through a distinctive stretched vertical design. In the foreground Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther are tussling energetically with the great ape King Loui’s minions.
However, the real joy in this build is found when you follow the rocky path of Bandar-log back up the steps to the rear relief. From out of the gateway, framed by lovely detailed ruins formed from of all things handcuff elements, pokes the mighty face of King Loui himself, green eyes glowing. It’s the perfect capture of a great cinematic moment!
