Quoth the Raven, Nevermore. by Wursu Quoth the Raven, Nevermore. by Wursu
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted–nevermore!


When reading Poe's "The Raven" for the umpteenth time the other night, I just... got this image in my head, and realised I had to illustrate it. So I did. :D I am considerably happy with it; as always there are several things I could have done better, but I am, overall, very happy with it. ^^ Tried some perspective, and I really hope it worked; that it do look as if you're up there (perched upon a bust of Pallas) with the Raven, looking down on the man. Hopefully it does not simply look as if the poor guy is confronted by a giant bird. xD

Black pen, watercolours, coloured pencils, white gel pen (just aliiiittle).
Based upon "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe; [link]

Awesome work! I've always loved that poem :love: Well illustrated, almost exactly the same picture I had in my own mind when I first read it.
