The Raven by yuumei The Raven by yuumei


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.

It's interesting how two similar pieces give different vibes/feeling. Like the cat one makes me wanna chase him, but she looks like a beautiful thing just passed by and I can only stare. 
Beautiful work as always

Beautiful interpretation!!! I love when people perceive things differently from what other people may think or what something is "suppose" to mean- and this is perfect. Very well done! owo

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.
