Just paint your face the shadow's smile
Slipping me away from you
But every night I burn,
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow-black dream
~ Burn, The Cure
It was about time I had a drawing of The Crow. The flaws are very clear, but it turned out better than I expected.
It's kind of surreal that it's been almost twenty years.

Time taken: 1 day for sketching, 2 days for inking. Maybe around 8-10 hours in whole
Size: slightly smaller than A4
Materials: a rather rough textured recycled-like paper that I don't exactly like, mechanical pencil + rubber for sketch, 1 BIC ballpoint pen. And two candles to help in the end.The Crow belongs to James O'Barr and Miramax I think and was directed by Alex Proyas.
I don't own anything in it.
