The Dora Milaje
What I appreciated the most about the film adaption of the Black Panther and Wakanda were the representation of women. The protectors. The bodyguards of the king. The Dora Milaje. Aggressive. Physical. Battle intelligence. While still able to show the emotions that are opposite of that. The posters of them were my favorite among them so I wanted to recreate them in my own style.
I tend to add highlights and shadows within Photshop but decided to apply gradients and blur to the arsenal this project. Rather than harsh features, soft and delicate were the approach since the poses themselves were already stern.
