I really like this "ROUGH" concept because it showcases two narratives:
1) The importance of telling a story about a castle seige from two timeline POV's.
2) Hierarchy of importance regarding the 'hero' vs. the 'castle'. In the first 'rough', the hero is featured with his head turned toward the words thereby directing the audience's gaze. The second 'rough' does the same thing but focuses more on the activity of the troops.
Note: Both photos conveyed shared the same graphic elements.
