First thumbnail set for 'The Pit and The Pendulum'. This is proving to be trickier than I had thought as in the book there is not a lot of lighting in the scene so I'm going to have to almost make up the lighting scenario for this piece.
Although he talks about white angel like candles that he focuses on and then suddenly disappears, I feel this has potential to make a good illustrative piece with the lighting fading away in the frame like number 8. I also see potential in 12 even though its stretched I could increase the height to make it 16:9 and design a roof to the area. I'm finding myself loosening up in Photoshop now and starting to get ideas down quicker just from these initial ideas.
