After Chadwick Boseman died of cancer. We felt that we had to do a portrait of him for our Fandom Fitness project.

The striking angle is intentional as well as the direct gaze of Black Panther but unfortunately I feel that this drawing is failing to pull in the viewer like I wanted.

Lack of Clarity in Motive

From the day I started research for this drawing I’ve had a severe lack of clarity in motive, and the quality is suffering because of it.

Simplifying the Head

Paper That I’m Not Supposed to Use

Today I started a second drawing of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther but with a paper that I’m not supposed to use with dry media.
