I am not quite certain what you mean by scene pictures, but I am assuming that you are supposed to draw three pictures that illustrate things that occur in chapter 8. If this is not correct, please repost your question and give us more specific information.

This chapter comes right after the death of Ikemefuna. Okonkwo is very upset over having been forced (in his mind) to participate in the killing of his adopted son, so he hangs out in his hut for two days without eating anything, drinking palm wine, and snorting snuff. How about drawing a picture of him in his hut, getting drunk on palm wine and snorting snuff while his wife and daughters stand by wrining their hands, trying to offer him food, and having worried looks on their faces.

In the next part of the chapter, he goes to visit Obierika, a tribal elder who reminds him that he should never have participated in the killing of Ikemefuna. So for the second scene, you could draw the two men sitting side by side, Okonkwo with a concerned look on his face, and Obierika with a stern, warning look, perhaps shaking his finger at Okonkwo in warning.

Another thing that happens in this story is the arrangement of Akueke's marriage. You could draw a picture of Akueke with her beautiful beads on, and the men sitting around negotiating the bride price, which is settled to be 20 bags of cowries.
