here are shots from the Amazing World of Gumball in which I art directed and did the modeling / matte painting.
The reference was the Rodin’s gate of hell.
I received the first design from Dalila Rovazzani which was a bit too friendly as this door was supposed to be impressive, loaded with details and mysterious.
I knew it could be interesting to keep those gargoyles on a more detailed door. I re used a design of ghost from an older episode for the front panel of the door which I turned into a tileable pattern.
The director Antoine Perez help me on the design on the handle to make it less cute.
Feel free to c&c.
