The Raven by yuumei The Raven by yuumei
:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:TWITTER:bulletblue:PIXIV:bulletblue:

Modern day reinterpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.

Poe's work always carried a sense of mystery and familiarity to me. I wanted to reinvent that feeling in a modern setting. Imagine walking down the street, through the crowd, and in a brief moment, catching the glimpse of someone you once knew. But before you can act -blink- and they're gone again.

This is the place I go when I wake from a flying dream. There isn't a real good way to describe it, but the animation in my head says exactly what the crows are doing right now.

Someone sure is enjoy Edgar Allen Poe's work, huh? I maybe fond of some of his works, but many times I have to give up on some, due to the strange words he uses.

The birds make it dark, the background gives it an eerie tone, the fact you used grays, makes me feel like there is a feeling of emptiness. I also like how you hid her face.
