Annabel Lee by Naimane Annabel Lee by Naimane
I took a short little illustration course after school a while back, and as our final project thingie we could choose any story/poem/song/whatever to make illustrations for, and I chose Edgar Allen Poe's Annabel Lee 8D Uploaded it on tumblr but forgot about here... Hope it won't get too confusing to read wince I put all the pages together into one huge thing xD
I'm kinda horrible at traditional art... and we had to make everything traditionally... So... yeah... Though I did cheat a bit with the pages that are entirely covered with black and added that in photoshop but otherwise, black multiliners wohoo! Hopy I did it justice ;u;

Have you tried inking and painting with India Ink and a crow quill? It's such a great medium

Я тебя так понимаю!! :( у самого экзамены на носу и кууча трейдов.
Так что не волнуйся, буду ждать, сколько нужно, я просто время от времени сам себя успокаиваю, что ты не забыл о трейде ))

К стати, о трейде.. тебя точно устраивает моя картинка? Может я что то другое нарисую? А то почему-то она меня тревожит, и кажется не достойной тебя О_о

Люблю твой арт и твоих персонажей )

У нас есть что то общее х)
Мне пару раз говорили, что я рисую похоже на тебя.. не понимаю правда, что они нашли общего между твоим мастерством и моими каляками?

This is truly just beautiful. This is like, this is traditional? With only black and white, and traditional.... all of that, just wow. That is one of the most impressive things. Also hehe, Annabel Lee, is one of my all-time favorite poems by Poe. I'm so glad I came across this.

Wow, this is just amazing. To only use black and white as your colors, AND to do this traditionally (it totally looks digitized, it's that good) is quite the challenge, but I think you nailed it! My favorite shots are the top panel with the two standing together, then the last one where the boy's at the graveyard. Such contrasting emotions, but so masterfully done! The fact that you can't see the boy's face in the last panel sort of brings out his unspoken despair. Simply put: this is stunning.
