Masque of the Red Death by shley77 Masque of the Red Death by shley77
this was an assignment for my illustration concepts class. we were supposed to take a short story, song or poem with a twist ending, and create a diptych of 'before and after' essentially.

i think i worked on this too much, because my teacher absolutely loved it, and i thought it was just okay. i dunno what it looks like anymore. but im really glad he liked it so much!!!! it was super exciting!

the dead people were SOOOO fun to draw >3

oh yes, btw, this is an illustration of E.A. Poe's Masque of the Red Death...which you should read....cuz its good....yesh
