The Raven by Entar0178 The Raven by Entar0178
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting,
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor:
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—NEVERMORE!

The original painting is 3033px wide. I have painted it during the night, listening to Edgar Poe's Raven voiced by Christopher Lee. It took me a whole night to paint.

The moonlit coloration is admirable, lending an atmospheric chill.  All of the elements of Poe's fevered dream-scape come together neatly:  the candles, books, fluttery papers, inkwell, pallid bust of Pallas, and that quothing raven stepped in from the Night's Plutonian shore.  Poe grasps a standard which may well be a flag of surrender to the inevitable:  the 'fameless nevermore' of a writer forever associated with but one poem, despite a literary panopoly unrivaled to this day.  Both sketchy and intricate linework abound; imprecise brushstrokes, and the lack of definitive shading, signal just the right amount of murkiness to qualify for a genuinely mysterious effect. An eye for perspective draws us into a canvas rich with almost three-dimensional figures, including Mr. Poe himself.  Of note is the raven crowning the overshadowed author in his chair, its ghost finely wrought upon the floor.  This illustration boasts two ingredients which Mr. Poe would recognize and praise:  Imagination and Originality.
