    ref grabs. I guess her sugar coating is her “skin,” she has a nose and everything just painted over unlike the actual skeleton characters. 

    La Muerte from The Book Of Life

    La Muerte (the character) is based on the Mexican Catrinas used during the Day of the Dead, and many women who dress up as the Catrina draw the nose holes on their noses like that to emulate the skull through make-up along with the colorful markings. The sugar coating on the “skin” is to show that La Muerte is made of candy, which emulates the candy skulls that are made for the festival of the Day of the Dead, and the candy skulls have those colorful markings on them as well. It’s also cool to notice the Cempasúchil flowers on her dress and hat, which are always present during the festival.

    These are some of the reasons as to why I have mad respect for the details that are being given to these characters <3

    Not only that but her color scheme is almost entirely the colors most used for Day of the Dead, Black, representing , the land of the dead, Pink meaning celebration, White for purity/hope, Yellow for a new day and the sun, Red for the life/blood of humans/animals, the only color missing would be purple which usually represented greif and suffering [however perhaps it was intended to be removed?]

    Plus the candles placed on her sombrero is just really perfect because of the fact that candles are placed on the shrines people make for the dead in order for the dead to have easier guidance when returning

    Also her dress itself is just, wow, really close to how Catrinas would be portrayed

    Really great job for the character designs and the real effort and creativity put into this movie is just wowowow !!!

    SHINTARO OHATA

    Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
    Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

    Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th
