Here are just a few quick thumbnails that i have produce for The Pit and the Pendulum which was on of my two stories. These thumbnails are of two different description that i found within the extracts. The first begin when he gives a description of the cell that he wake up in and the second beginning the description of the torture chamber.
These ideas were produced by just drawing what the descriptions said within the text just to get me thinking of what i want in my final concept paintings. The next set to help with these initial ideas is to research into the different things that are written with the extracts like dungeons, prisons/pits, tombs and may other things i could look into.
