Black Panther Shuri Concept Art from Adi Granov
Here’s what Adi Granov wrote on his Instagram account regarding the Black Panther Shuri concept art.
Another image of my take on Shuri’s black Panther costume for Wakanda Forever.
In this one I focused on showing the different materials and textures as well as unifying shapes to the patterns carrying through the whole design. I was particularly happy with the gauntlet design integrating into the forearms.
I think I have a tendency to go too far with some of this stuff and expect the producers to pick and choose elements they like, but it backfires as there is so much going on they lose the ability to take it all in. They responded really well to my previous image with this same design, which was focused on the mood and power, but seemed to have been overwhelmed when presented with it fully lit and rendered. Oh well. I’m extremely happy with it myself though.

And here’s another set which was the first one released by Granov.

Wakanda Forever Black Panther design. This was my moody take on the character trying to set the tone and the overall direction. I was focusing on athleticism and danger as well as trying to set out some signature lines, such as the cheekbone structure, gauntlets, etc. It was a really fun challenge.
The one you see on top is the one that closely resembles the final product, the one that Letitia Wright’s character, Shuri wore by the end of Ryan Coogler’s BP sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Its also closer to what we saw for the Wakanda Forever Funko Pop and Marvel Legends Black Panther action figure.
Wakanda Forever is still playing in theaters and stars Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Tenoch Huerta Mejia, Danai Gurira, Dominique Thorne, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o and more!
