This image was created for "The imaginary voyages of Edgar Allan Poe" comic book by Hocus Pocus Comics which is currently being funded on Kickstarter. The image is included in the comic as a poster and is my interpretation of the main characters, Edgar Allan Poe and Irving rat.
This is the summary of the story:
Edgar Allan Poe has lost everyone he ever loved and now he is losing his mind. Haunted by his wife's ghost and his many literary failures, the poet tumbles into a fantastical world created by his genius...and his madness. This world called Terra Somnium is a nightmare region that merges his macabre literary creations and mythological gods and monsters of old, all hell-bent on stopping him from escaping the land of dreams.
Some initial rough sketches trying to figure out Edgar's character.
Step by step process.
