Shawntae Howard, also known as Ebony Leopard, is a digital artist from Pennsylvania, USA, and the creator and artist of Extinctioners, a comic about anthropomorphic superheroes, published by Shanda Fantasy Arts and Angry Viking Press.
Shawntae's anthro avatar was a black panther, with glasses and white markings on his face, who went by the name of Tamar. His avatar has since changed, and Tamar is now just used as a standard character, or for simple name recognition.
