The Witches of Morva

A striking concept sketch of the three witches for "The Black Cauldron" by Tim Burton.
The idea of three characters moving as one is fascinating, it is perfect for animation and adds a surreal quality to these crazy ladies.
Unfortunately the final designs in the film don't utilize Tim's vision, and Orddu, Orwen and Orgoch ended up looking like average witches.
I can't help imagining what I would do today with Tim's concept in animation. 
I think I would go to town and have a ton of fun.
