Here is my piece for this one:
I have chosen to illustrate POE's poem entitled 'Eldorado'. If you wish to read it or see any of his other works, there is a complete list HERE.
My background uses an engraving by George Pearson (1850-1910) and was produced in 1864. (Public domain image)
I added a moon to it and superimposed my 'POE Skull Bust' (without the Raven) over the top of it with a blue 'glow' effect. The little creepy death guy is called "Gofrey 2" and is by Drellas Dazstudio (although this site looks to have been dead since 2010). I printed him 3 times and fussy cut sections to make him 3D.
The knight is from my Shop too.... "KNIGHT 3".. I just flipped him round the other way. I coloured the horse with Promarkers and the Knight with silver + gold pens. Pity it doesn't show up his armour on the photo :-)
The scroll is from DOODLE DRAGON STUDIOS - Dustin Pike and I typed the POE poem on the top of it. I cut it out twice to make the scroll ends 3D with foam tabs.
The whole piece was mounted onto card printed with my Freebie POE RAVEN Background Paper, faded out a bit so that it wasn't ultra prominent.
So, that's it from me for now. I hope you will pop over to QUOTH THE RAVEN and see what my fellow Minions of The Master have cooked up for you this time... you are in for a treat I can tell you :-D
See you later xx
