We anticipated that the Black Panther movie would expose the great artists and designers behind the film and we are doing our best to cover some of our favorites. “The Jabari Tribe” is a project from the official Black Panther concept art illustrated by Marco Nelor.
Absolutely, unequivocally and monumentally thankful, grateful, and humbled to have been a tiny part of this history. 🙏🏽 My heart is on fire right now! (There was a minor little clerical error with my name not being on that piece in the book but I’m not even mad in the slightest! These things happen sometimes when things get busy… but i assure you, im beyond excited !) 👍🏾🙏🏽
Hope everyone’s enjoying Black Panther this weekend! Here’s a quick gif i made showing the process i used for Illustrating these Jibari tribe costume designs. Movie production can be so fast paced that it’s best to fall back on your strongest method. For me, that’s plain old pencil and paper… which i imported into photoshop and painted to completion. Here’s a closeup of one of those characters. Feel free to ask any questions about the process below !
