Picture Book – Progress

So our latest project was based around a short story of an evil woman who wants to eat a kid and long story short everyone doesn’t want her to eat their kids but she finds one on his own and she eats him and turns out its her own kid.

I began by choosing a possible time period or theme for my pieces and poverty stricken area’s of Victorian London sprung to mind when i was reading the story since it was a dark a gloomy place. Along with the fashion at the time it seemed really fitting for this dark tale.

What intrigued me the most was that it mentioned in the story she becomes haggard after not finding a child to eat and refusing to eat anything else. So i thought my first image would be based on her being an old crone walking the empty streets of London searching for a child.

Here’s some thumbnails i conjured.
