Modern day reinterpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black Cat.

-That momentary sense of mystery and fear. Out of the corner of your eye. A stranger? An acquaintance? Wink. And they are gone behind the crowd.

What a beautiful piece, I love the dark feel and the EAP inspiration! Also love the composition, the way one of the cat's faces overlap the man's. Lovely :)

I haven't read Edgar Allan Poe, but my brain translates it like movement: Out of the corner of your eye. *cat jumps* A stranger? *Cat looks at you* An acquaintance? *Cat winks* Wink. *Cat turns away and disappears* And they are gone behind the crowd.

But the cat is not a cat at all, it is that man.. for instead of his eyes, there are the cat's eyes.

Ok.
Just perfect. Especially for the eye of the cat. That piece and the raven girl are great. This one feels even more so because of this detail.
Another one plz ? :)
