This image is a beat for a visual development project on John Steinbeck's "Flight" (short story). Teams of 4-5 were assembled to decide on the 5 important beats to the story. I worked with 3 classmates and was assigned the 4th beat, which I'm showcasing. In this beat, Pepé, the protagonist, loses his horse by a gunshot. This is an important turning point in the story because it leads to his ultimate demise. Soon, Pepé will be stripped of all his posessions and will fend off the elements and his enemies.

Below the image are my original thumbnails for my suggestions for the beats. The thumbnail for the more developed image is in the middle column, top row.
