Flock of Crows: Sketch/Study
  • Description

    Sketch/Study of Crows

    Poem Text:

    Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
    Tell me what the lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore."
    Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

    From Edgar Allan Poe’s the Raven (1845)

    Crows are great for line drawing. They are very stark and imagistic, just black lines forming a silhouette of flight. I am actually doing this as a study for a character I am planning to draw…soon. There are some wood spirits drawn in there too, see if you can spot them ] The Raven is a great poem…one of my favorites by Poe.
