The Raven

Posted Oct 4, 2007, 6:03:00 PM

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

    Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
    Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore
    For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
    Ever yet blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
    Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
    With such a name as "Nevermore".

    One of my favourite poems and ths picture goes nicely with it Thumbs Up although it coudl stand to have some shading to add to the dark sense.

      My favourite, too :>

      I know it needs shading, but I just decided to leave it unshaded this time. Makes it more unrealistic and mysterious - in my opinion, of course Tongue

    art is very good... if you practice a little more on your shading and add dramtic highlights, I see great potential! Thumbs Up

    If you drew this in MS Paint, props to you! That program sucks after you've tried illustrater or photoshop.... I'd recomend getting photoshop to do shading and such.... even if it's a trial version..... ok, I'll stop rambling now.... Smile

      Thank you very much ^^ I left it unshaded for purpose ;) (and I feel shading would destroy it, since I'm not into drawing really dark themed pics)
      I used ShiPainter, usually I use photoshop, but someone deleted it from my computer -_- (and I suffer greatly)
      Once again - thank you Smile

        oooh, I'm sorry, I would shoot someone if they deleted my photoshop...
