"And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."
I don't tend to read much horror as my imagination has a tendency to embellish and recall the scariest of stories at the worst possible times. But i've always been a fan of the writings of Poe. Particularly "The Masque of the Red Death."
This started out as a pencil sketch with the intention of doing it as a painting, but time has gotten the better of me. I hope to do a proper painting of it some time in the future.
