Day of the Dead
|TITLE||Day of the Dead|
Another favourite project of mine (as I am a big fan of Day of the Dead) This artwork was produced for the German Special edition release. A lot of alternative artworks have been produced for Day of the dead and I wanted to create something different, that I felt truly reflected the characters and tone of the film, not just zombies.
Most of the art seems to focus on Bub and while he is a big part of the film, the dramatic focus for me was the female lead and her struggle, so I wanted to bring her to the fore front as the hero, then keeping bub and the zombies as this threat which looms over them in a more abstract way. Below we see the underground caverns, the doctor with his ‘experiments’ and Rhodes with his group of crazy soldiers.
My concept was originally in oranges and yellows for the island vibe, but when watching it again I realised most of the film takes place underground, where everything is bathed in a green sipid light of the artificial fluorescent lighting so I reworked it to be more reflective of that.
