Tom Riddle: Magic is Might. (Young Tom!!) by smallsmiles Tom Riddle: Magic is Might. (Young Tom!!) by smallsmiles
Tom Riddle must have been a charming little boy. In this picture, I imagine him to be....less than 14. Junior High School student age~~~ :aww: And for some reason he's crying. Poor thing.

He has also enchanted his pillow case to have the first generation of the Dark Mark on it. *Imagines the young thing doodling it in his notebooks or on scrap parchments....* which explains why, er, the pictures are simpler and Cute. :heart:



:heart: er, I didn't feel like cropping out the sketchpad of this one. In case you're curious, it's about 4 x 5 inches. :nod: I really ought to draw on a bigger pad, so I can actually get some details on the paper instead of going in and doing bits on the computer....

...but oh well. :XD: The hand is done on the computer, heavily referenced. Everything else is mostly copic marker, with a bit of guache paint thrown in for smooth detail, and then some texture brushes on top in PhotoShop for....everything. :giggle: my usual "mix and match" PhotoShop-Real-Media thing.

I actually wonder if Tom could cry. He could not love, so can you muster tears if you cannot bring yourself to care enough about anything? I do think the dark mark had all the makings of notebook scribbles from childhood, lol~

One of my friends has based a story (or at least Tom's characterization) off that idea-- that Tom can't cry, that is. ^_^ I think both of you could very easily be right. :nod: He's certainly got anger down, though. And suspicion. ^^;

But, eh, I wanted to draw a tear. :XD:

Hehehehe, scribbles from childhood~ :giggle:\\\\\\\\

Sometimes, a tear would have gone a long way to making Voldemort something akin to redeemable, and would have been most fitting while he was still 'Tom Riddle'--but JK decided to make him Evil through and through due to X-reason here. I personally like the idea of Voldie having a chance at being human at some point.

(nod, nod) yeaah, it would have been interesting to see him cry in canon. I would have really enjoyed that. :huggle:

What sort of Voldemort / Tom Riddle would you have liked to see? I'd have liked to see a Smart, Sardonic Voldemort / Tom....

I would have liked to see Voldemort trying and failing to understand and imitate kindness and compassion--because he can't understand the point of doing something without reaping a gain. I'd like that to be one of many foreshadowing experiences that would lead to his eventual downfall.
