I wanted to break the typical mold for this show, but I had to maintain a certain consistency with such established characters like the Addams Family. I was inspired by the original cartoon's gray-tones and bold linework, but also the warm jewel tones of Victorian Gothic Art. The lavish textures and layering mixed with dripping frayed fabric created a deathly luxurious world. I kept the Addams in their traditional silhouettes, but I incorporated the jewel tones in the ghostly ancestors; my team and I decided to move in a zombie-decaying direction rather than the ghostly white standard. It's as if the Addams discover their true potential/color in death.
