The first entry is a sketch of Baloo from TaleSpin!
Most of the artists I know and really admire are animators, and if I were to pick a style I wanted SJ to "look like," the Disney adventure shows from the early '90s are the closest single match (although there are plenty of anime influences as well). In fact, some of my earliest childhood sequential drawings were of Bambi, so when in doubt it makes sense to go back to those primal inspirations.
This image was copied (not traced) from the image on this page. I plan to return to Baloo over time until I get to the point where I can draw the character naturally in original poses and expressions.
