Black Panther Decade Variant by mbreitweiser Black Panther Decade Variant by mbreitweiser
Marvel asked me to dream up a 1940s version of the Black Panther for one their decade variant covers. I pitched them a Female BP fending off Nazis in North Africa.

The cover hits July 22nd on Black Panther #6

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-11
The suggester writes, "Black Panther Decade Variant by *mbreitweiser is a stunning scene with great colours, composition and amazing action! The the point of view beside the soldier makes the viewer feel as if you are right there experiencing it! Definitely check out Mitch's amazing gallery! " ( Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by kangel )
The color composition is fantastic. The blast of warm surrounded by all the cool colors give it a good feel.

The movement of the Nazi's feels like you took a photograph.

The female Black panther look as she is blasting out from behind the tank in the classic old mid century garp.

The only thing that I see see from this piece that stands out and directs my eye to it every time I look at it is the brush down in the left and right corners. To me at least they feel un-fishised and stand out. I think it is the hard lines around them, you don't see them anywhere else on the piece.

This is quite possibly my favorite piece you have done thus far and it was enjoyable to watch you do this via live stream.

See ya in a couple weeks @ Chicago

A Wehrmacht soldier wouldn't have a swastika on his helmet. The SS soldiers had swastikas on their helmets.

:trophy: Congratulations, you've been featured!

As part of deviantART's effort to promote the work of our members, we're doing our best to give artists exposure to new audiences. One way we do this is by featuring deviants in communities and platforms outside of deviantART. On Tumblr, we feature artwork that has been promoted within the deviantART community, has received lots of attention around the web, or received a surge in traffic.

Recently, we promoted your work on our Tumblr account and in turn has been featured on the crafts tag page. Congratulations! :aww:
