I’m found a weird superstition I liked for this months contest. Apparently in Vermont you can see houses with one window near the roofline that is diagonal, called a witch window. The superstition is that a witch cannot fly on her broomstick thru a diagonal window. (Guess she won’t notice the other windows LOL!) Anyway, here’s some rough ideas - please ignore perspective etc, this is just visual brainstorming.
1 and 2 are the witch crashed on the side of the house, seen close up or further away. 3 is a view from inside, witch looking thru but can’t get in. 4 is a couple of kids making faces at the witch hovering outside. Do any of these convey the story of the superstition to you?
@Kat 1 and 4 are my favorite. 1 I think tells the Superstition more since they can't fly through. 4 Is almost more of a "Before" moment. What if you combined both. Have the kids making the face while the witch is impacting the house. Or have the kids laughing at her.

Thanks for the thoughts! Here’s a sketchy sketch with the witch and a couple of kids laughing at her. Do you think this tells the story better? Feedback welcome, and thank you!
Fiddled with it a little more, try to make it a little more interesting, and added some values. How is the composition, and is the story clear? Have any suggestions to improve things?
Had some time to work on this, and here’s where I am with it. Not done yet. But I’m not pleased with the kids faces, but I’m not sure what’s wrong with them. I plan to add glass, and finish the windows and siding, maybe add a cloud or two in the sky.
Anyway, I appreciate any feedback or suggestions on the image - the kids or anything else. Thanks!
