The Raven by violinsane The Raven by violinsane
First Typography drawing and first Illustrator drawing :excited: I was still a bit too intimidated to try using the gradient mesh, so the shading is done in PSE.
I used ~IVorf3us's awesome typography tutorial

Extra thanks to ~aspectofdesign for introducing me to the pencil tool and general Illustrator-y stuff :D

And yes, that really is the entire poem ;) You can read it here: [link]

Also as a t-shirt:[link]

OH and by the way, THIS is your first Illustrator AND typography project?!?!?!?!?!
It LOOKS like a drawing from someone who's known Illustrator for YEARS. Seriously.... my first Illustrator project was nowhere NEAR the good that this looks, I am not kidding :)

hahaha, thanks. Honestly, the hardest part was fitting the whole poem; since I was using the pencil tool (yay!), all I had to do was type onto the path I'd drawn :) Seriously though, it looked like a triangular blob made out of correction tape until I did the shading and I do have a few years experience with that :D; I wasn't quite daring enough to go Illustrator all the way...

WOW :wow: This is AMAZING. Did you use type on a path tool?
I would've never been as patient as you must've been when making this lol :D nice job!

You made E.A. Poe look a lot more epic.
