value sketch

1800's town, on an ominous night.

Original Concept
I originally started thinking about the idea of showing some gallows with people hanging. As the ideas developed, I doodled a barn burning with a group of shady figures surrounding the barn. I liked the idea and started to go forward with it. Unfortunately, I was drawing in a sketchpad last class, so I don't have the original sketch here, so here's a 5 minute digital version.

In the 1800's, witch hunts happen weekly. The local covenant has had enough and decide to send a message. In the dead of night they abduct one of the young women from the village and burn her at the stake.

Value Painting - Witch Burning

1800's witch burning. Witch is running from the villagers chasing her with a torch. Set at night time. Witch is seen rounding a corner in the distance, light background surrounding her, intending to make her look like the innocent party. Villager in the front lit only by his torch, surrounded by darkness, giving an ominous look.
