Fine ArtFine ArtFine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios. If you’re in the business and have some art you’d like to share, get in touch!

Black Panther was good! It also looked good, so I figured I’d showcase the work of a number of artists involved with the film’s production, giving us a look at how the costumes and environments of Wakanda went from the drawing board to the big screen.

Note that this isn’t everyone involved, it’s just a sample, but it’s a good cross-section that covers everything from Killmonger’s tattoos to Klaue’s arm to the Golden City itself.

Links to the portfolios of the artists involved can be found in their names below. And if you’d like to check out other art features we’ve done on recent movies, here’s Blade Runner 2049 and Ghost in the Shell.

DISCUSSION

Striking and neat visual designs, but the Wakanda of the Black Panther suffers from the Klingon contradiction.

The wakandans are supposedly a technologically advanced nation, the most advanced nation on earth it seems, and still they dress and act like barbarians. Should’t technological advancement bring erudition and sophistication on its wake? You know what weeds out barbarism.

As fun as it would be to see elections as a big battle royale type ffas, that’s not how civilized countries act, as such a system would not only be ineffective, it would be counter effective.
