Final project description

My final project is on Anansi whom is considered the god of wisdom. His origins are of the African decent and had become popular and spread through Caribbean culture as well. He had so much of  an influence that he ended up premiering in Static Shock an animated series about an African American super hero. If this African god had to be compared to anyone, Loki of Norse mythology would be a great comparison. So this also states that Anansi was a Trickster god whom enjoyed tricks and often shape shifted. His most popular form was a spider.

This portrait not only shows my subject but also uses magnificent lighting. The focal point is my subject with very little in the background allowing one to focus on the center. The dark colors from the outfit contrast well with the background adding more depth to this image.
