I like the style. Like ink. And the red is very appropriate.

I don't know why, but it seems to suit him so well. I'm not talking about his prose or anything, but his mentality is really reflected by this. I don't know why. :iconconfusedplz:

This is probably hella old, but I was wondering how you did this. I've seen this picture, or at least something really similar, around so I assume you edited it in Photoshop or Illustrator? Could you kinda give me a rundown on how you do this?

I think it's a really neat style, for some reason, and it would be awesome on a poster or a t-shirt.

Hey :)
I made this vector image in Illustrator, actually this is one of the most easiest and simplest designs I've ever done. You may want to check some tutorials if you want to do your own :)

I just followed the shapes in Illustrator over a new layer with pen tool. Used black for the face, hair, body, etc., and in a couple of minutes Poe was done. Then I just added some circular shapes in red tones and distorted them ;)

If you have more questions feel free to ask me.

I drew a picture of Poe too and am quite sure we used the same reference :). I love how dramatic you've made him!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we used the same ref; this image is one of the most popular and iconic of him.

Very cool. I wonder what he was like in person. Maybe he wasn't as morbid as people think! hah

I don't think he was a morbid person. Sometimes I feel he was warm and that darkness most people think he had, he only posessed it when he wrote. I think he was a sensitive man :)

Oh no, I remember! The Never Ending Story! And the kid fights the wolf while the world falls apart and then Falcor rescues him! xD

But that wolf (can't remember his name) put fear in my heart for a long, long time... -continues cowering-
