The Raven by yuumei The Raven by yuumei
YUUMEIART.COM:bulletred:FACEBOOK:bulletorange:TUMBLR:bulletyellow:TWITTER:bulletgreen:PIXIV:bulletblue:YOUTUBE

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.

The way you've used the ravens to obstruct her face, the movement they give the piece, the fact that they are flying away, showing a moment passing and leaving, is just brilliant. <3

This is such a beautiful picture! It reminds me of when I was at an English school and I was late to class and suddenly this enormous raven swooped down onto the roof of a nearby building and peered around ... incredible.

I can see how this works with The Raven, but my first thought was Serial Experiments Lain. Oooh... Another inspiration! I can see a crossover, not as a blending of the two stories themselves, but of their underlying themes, creating a third, totally original story. Beautiful! Someone must write it!

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.
