Years ago I purchased some reference photos from Jason Morgan’s website. There is one black panther photo I really like. But it takes me almost 2 years to finally have the confidence to actually paint it.
When I look at the photo, I have this scene in my mind. A beautiful big black cat roams at night to keep its territory under watched. It also protects all creatures on its territory away from evil. It is not alone. It belongs to a secret underworld association, night watcher. They all have a little piece of accessories on their body. And this black panther has feather earrings. The moon is bright, the clouds is heavy. The black panther is quiet. It shall have some magic power to fight the evil enemies. It comes and goes on its own, leaving its shadow behind.

Wow, congratulations on the DD!! This is a very imaginative and stunning painting! I hope Jason Morgan sees this. I’ll bet he would be extremely pleased to see what you did with the reference. Both of you are incredible artists that I look up to!
