This piece was drawn in ink, painted with watercolors, and finished in Photoshop.

Beautiful. One of Poe's lesser known stories and one of my personal favorites. Absolutely gorgeous job :)

OH DEAR GOD!!!!! :O  As far as I know, you're the first artist who has the guts to illustrate the horrific climax of this tale...

Thanks, haha! It took me a LONG time to get this illustration just right! I really struggled with the story, but I found a new appreciation for it <3

It's one of my favorite tales--not so much for the horrific ending, but for the peculiar beliefs the narrator shares with us at the beginning; I often quote the line, "Convinced myself, I seek not to convince."

I remember reading this in school in 5th Grade! When this story comes to mind, I always imagine the box with the teeth in them. Amazing work as always! I love your art and Poe's work. Keep it up! ))

I absolutely LOVE this!
By the bye,  I am dying to know what you could do to the cast of Winnie the Pooh and the hundred acre wood.

I love how you drew this. The details and the way you placed the blood is pretty amazing.

Love how the hair is around her head.
So beautiful.
And the red is beautiful compared to the other darker colours.
