To Your Last Death

In 2016-2018 I was working with the great team of folks from Coverage Ink on To Your Last Death (formerly known as Malevolent), the first US-animated 2D sci-fi horror movie. I was working as a line artist, background line artist and background colorist on the project. I did more than 100 backgrounds and a couple of character key frames. It was an amazing experience. The movie was released in 2019, gathering tons of great reviews and festival accolades. Expect it to hit a screen near you sometime in 2020.

This scene was a lot of work, but I have really enjoyed the process of adding more and more detail, creating a certain mood.

I did all the hallway paintings used in the movie. This series of 3 abstract paintings was my favorite.

Just a silly fun thing for the team, not a part of the movie :)
