Death <3 Life is a short-movie currently in production by the amazing post-production Chicago-based studio Coat of Arms. I had the honor to be invited to be in charge of all the art direction of the project. Stay tuned for this project, because I have feeling it’s going to turn out really great! :-D
Death is a quirky, timid boy that, well, loves Life. He have a parrot-scythe in his back, and sometimes carries a huge rusty spyglass to stalk people. Weird guy, I must say.
I chose a cold palette in opposition to Life. His face reminds a skull, and looks like he’s dead (Oh, no!).
Life is a very happy, joyful girl that loves nature and the animals. Nothing can take away her good mood!
I decided to use warm happy colours on her, and also add some natural elements to make the concept of “lively” more, uh, lively.
