Quoth the Raven by AmaranthMB Quoth the Raven by AmaranthMB
From The Raven:

"By that Heaven that bends above us- by that God we both
adore-
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant
Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name
Lenore-
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name
Lenore."

Quoth the Raven "Nevermore."

I thought you would win and you should have won, i cant believe you didnt make it in the top 25 as i didnt either, I was really suprised who won i thought they picked 3 of the worst entries but hey the contest holder has no taste.

I guess the aesthetic of this piece wasn't what they were looking for. I was working off the poem alone, since I wasn't at all familiar with the show (actually, I had never heard of it before this contest!), so maybe that's why. 7 contests and I haven't broken into the top 25 yet...but meh. Maybe eventually.

nah all the entries that one were won  100% poe nothing to do with witches of east end I watch the show and the winner was picked because it so called resembled asgard... if you watch the show like I do your making that face like wtf cause the winning entry had nothing to do with poe or the show except for a raven... and if I would have known that the judges favorite color is teal I would have drawn just a raven in teal and won a prize to ... I don't think that the judges were fair and pretty much put forth rules but didn't follow through when it was time to pick. Im starting to think the contest are rigged and who knows if those are even real deviants who won I certainty have never heard of them till now. there work was ugly. I just hate when no talent bad artists win cause it encourages them to continue there bad ugly art. We don't need anymore andy Warhol's.

This is beautiful dude, I take it this is traditional medium? You've got great line work man, I really dig this- One thing though, I think the piece may have been stronger without whatever that is in the corner behind the raven, not sure it needs it, but otherwise this is really nicely done and I love the "nevermores" all around the edges- nice touch
