Artist's description:

Known as the Black Mamba, this is a portrait of Kobe Bryant as half man half snake. A friend of mine was the motivation behind this painting. I somewhat hit an art wall and did not know what to paint, my friend said 'why don't you paint Kobe Bryant.' I was somewhat hesitant because I did not want it to be just another portrait. I wanted to do something different and create a fictional character of Kobe Bryant. Initially, I was going for the 'half man half beast' portrayal, until I discovered he was known as the Black Mamba. Instantly I thought half man half snake. The colors represent the Lakers, the basketball team he played for before he retired.
