i love this so much! i also love the details that are references from his work (i got the black cat, the mask of the red death, the raven, the pit and the pendulum, the tell-tale heart and the gold bug references) 
the atmosphere is macabre, as it should be and i love the shading you used for his skin tone! (my favorite part of this composition is your take on his portrait)

I did a 'oval portrait' woodburn along the same line, but not with skulls.

This is an epic! I love the atmosphere!

Been a while since I studied Poe thoroughly, but I do recognize The Raven, the mask (Masque) of the Red Death, and The Telltale Heart.  Any other specific references I should recognize?

Awesome picture, very well-done. I especially love Poe's haunted expression as he's surrounded by his work. It gives the impression that he was able to produce such frightening images because he was so haunted...or perhaps he was so haunted because he was able to produce such terror.

Very well done gothic painting.
