In our Witches of East End Contest, we challenged you to illustrate a scene or element from one of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tales: "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," or "The Raven." The Creative team behind the Witches of East End have hand-picked three winners, with the top winner earning a spot for their artwork in the upcoming season finale of Witches of East End! Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations, winners!

Nevermore by AngelaRizza

Judges' Comments

This is our favorite. It's in the color palette and tone of the Beauchamp house and would be very easy to fit in. It also has great subtext for Asgard as well as Poe. Totally love it!

Edgar Allan Poe - The Black Cat by AlexanderLevett

Judges' Comments

We love the darkness of this piece and how much it reminded us of Aunt Wendy, while still tying into the Poe theme. You can feel from this art that the cat truly has a story to tell beyond its shadow!

  • $1,000 USD
  • 6 month premium membership
  • 4,000 dA points
The Tell-Tale Heart

Judges' Comments

This piece has a very haunting, strong, and dark emotion that relates both to Witches of East End and Edgar Allen Poe. The aspects of the room (the staircase, chair, etc.) combined with the power of the heart make us feel as if this portrait could come to life!

Second place is my favorite! I love how the shadows of the lonely cat make a human lady to keep it safe and sane!

I know nothing of the "Witches of East End", so I didn't bother entering...  I love contests and enter, but only when I feel I can "awe" the judges....  not knowing this theme, I didn't feel that was possible.
I can see the first entree being used as a picture in an old book, so I can see why you went with that.  The second entree is my favorite - it has a feel of witchcraft...  If I did this, I would of made the shadow look like a "traditional" witch, the witch hat and broom....  and because of that, I probably wouldn't have placed - lol
