This is the first influence map I designed for The Pit and The Pendulum, I thought I'd break it down into two sections for each excerpt. With one focusing on just the colours and textures whilst the other one is about visual influences from real life objects. I thought this would be a good way to know just what it is I'm trying to research and the colour scheme I'm trying to achieve.
For this influence map I've included an array of dark, cold textures with a few images of old wood and scratched worn metal, decrepid stone tiles and rock. These are all elements that occur in the book. Descriptions that I've translated into textures and colours.
