Long Forgotten recently made a post about a piece of Haunted Mansion concept art that never made it into the actual attraction: The Burning Miser.burn_zpsggcjesja

This miser, who has clearly sold his soul to devil, was supposed to appear in the hall of changing portraits. Here is the progression, in a series of sketches:

I think this would’ve made a great addition to the Mansion. The devil sneaking up from behind the Miser to claim his soul via spontaneous combustion powder is certainly creepy enough to make the cut.
