Style influences

By choosing horror as the genre for my story I feel that the artwork should compliment it and be dark and heavily based around shadows much like that of noir style.

In a search on google I typed in Sin City and in the images I stumbled across a french animation's stills. Renaissance plot is:

In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export -- youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386741/)


I love these stills they are so gritty and atmospheric and would love to incorporate this into my artwork.

I think which would also fit in nicely would be to use the technique from Sin City where certain things emit colours while everything else in the shot is black and white.

I will try to incorporate these styles into my artwork and play around with the ideas. Another idea which I thought my give it a more stylised and exaggerated effect would be incorporating the style of Tim Burton's drawings and animations. This would keep in line with the horror and creepiness of the story but give the characters more style in their appearances.
