black and red by Eyes-of-Inferno black and red by Eyes-of-Inferno
The Raven is what hooked me in elementary school for Poe lol I still have the first book I had ever bought at a book fair at the school I had attend, The Raven .
I always had felt bad for the character who went pretty much mad trying to forget the love he lost, didn't know if it was heaven or hell who was torturing him. Being a bit odd that he ask a bird it's name, but I guess that goes towards the madness lol

When drawing this I was actually going to go with the natural color of a raven but then went red anyways, I just listened to music and lost myself a bit when drawing and then at the end when I was done. I was like " damn it it looks like the raven ripped out Lenore's eyes T_T..." it wasn't my intention for it to look that way. - w- I just believe eyes are the widows to the soul and just let the raven madness get me lol

Since in the poem he mentions angels I made Lenore look like an angel using the raven's wings and gave get a halo of some sorts, I made her cry blood because either the pain of someone trying to not remember you, or that she caused the pain. o w o cant say either are good nor evil, just let your madness decide. :la:  all symbolism I guess O wO

This is incredible!! I love the ravens head! I always had a soft spot for ravens, they're definitely my favorite animal :)
I'm assuming this is in the contest based on the banner showing up below, so best of luck!!
