Masque of the Red Death


Author Comments

Ok this is another old project of mine.

This paint image is based off of the short story entitled "Masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Allen Poe. This is what I considered the Red Death to look like. If you want to read the story look it up.

You're a fan of Edgar Allen Poe as well? :)?
Ah what a story. 7 rooms I believe? Red, Blue, Orange, Purple, Yellow, was there a green one? and a Black room I believe. Its been so long since I've read it...

I never could QUITE understand the story. Was the Masque of the Red Death a disease that worked its way into the castle, or was it a person who actually did kill him.. Ah I digress. Very well done :) I enjoy it. Its really outside the box of what most people would imagine it as.

Poe is kinda a big inspiration on me, but thats not saying much in today's world were every other goth kid quotes him.

KurtWilder2027 responds:

Thanks man!

Good interpretation.

It is a sign of a good imagination that you can visualize something from words so clearly. However, the character does not have very good anatomy. Or was this intentional?

KurtWilder2027 responds:

I see it as more of a spirit rather than a person.
