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 )
:iconwaitedesigns:
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.

Perhaps the nazis were stupified by the sudden attack. It seems rather funny to use a grenade to defend an arriving foe who is only few feets far from you :)

the colors really make this art work pop out.

there is two things that look odd to me. one is her face seams very masculine, the other is the Nazi's (in the corner arm) looks a little too short.

but other then that I love the movement and colors. :D its a great piece.
