"You say you hate Washington's Birthday or Thanksgiving and nobody cares, but you say you hate Christmas and people treat you like you're a leper." - Kate
I fucking LOVE Gremlins.
My earliest memories of Gremlins were not of fun Christmas Looney-Toon-tastic-Tomfoolery
but of terror. I chose to design this specifically with the perespective of a child in mind. From the exagerrated scale of the limbs and forms of the characters to the over all dark visual feel. Inspired I think loosely by those darker Looney Toons title cards.
I took the palette from the bar scene. The low lit glowing red lighting, probaly pulled from tacky 80s bar signage on the walls. It still feels festive though as we cant forget Gremlins is a Christmas film.
The idea crossed my mind of a "snow-sprinkled" variant.
Could've been cool maybe possibly perhaps.
