Raven

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted – nevermore!

– Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven (excerpt)

Raven Pencil Drawing:

So I didn’t draw anything on “drawing day,” but its still a drawing. I spent about an hour on this and I could do a lot more to it, but I wanted to leave it incomplete.
