The Highwayman by MaryKosmosVer2 The Highwayman by MaryKosmosVer2
Inspired by the poem "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. I remembered reading this in 7th grade.
The poem can be seen here: [link]

Before the criticism comes in, I made some slight alterations in this image. I got lazy with the background; both the room and the moonlit night. And since I'm only using the LOTF cast, choosing whoever would portray Bess would be difficult... If I were to expand this picture, I'd put Jack and Roger as the redcoats near the window at the top left corner. Can you spot the musket in the image? (Hint: Read the poem!)

Aww... I can't help but stare at Simon's helplessness.... He's just too adorable, no matter what I draw him doing.... :'(

You KNOW I'm addicted to your crossover art pieces... especially this one, 'cause I haven't been able to get this poem out of my mind for about two weeks now...

Thanks... For some reason, I love drawing crossover pictures... I don't know why, but I just do it because it makes the pictures interesting...

I read the Highwayman when I was in seventh grade, and the rhythm of the poem is just so suspenseful... It's so thrilling... Especially the part when Bess was held captive by the Red Coats... Hence the image... ^^;

lol. The damsel-in-distress theme suits him quite well. XDDDD

I know... When it comes to pictures using the LOTF cast, I always place Simon as the DiD (short for damsel-in-distres)... ^^;
