Commission for honeybean

Guys, I'm actually wicked nervous about this commish - it's my first Tom Riddle, and I drew it for the queen of Tom Riddle art (IMO), honeybean. She's a huge Tom fan, and draws him beautifully, and she came up with the idea for me to draw Tom's confrontation with his father, Tom Riddle, Sr. More interesting to me was her additional prompt that Tom, Jr. should not only look like his evil self, but maintain a vestige of the human being he once was - to look at his father in such a way as to connote not just hate, but the bitterness of abandonment. I LOVED this idea.

It was a tough order, but I did my best. :)

Title: My Filthy Muggle Father
Medium: Ink
Rating: PG because Voldemort's dad is about to be snuffed.
Characters: Tom Riddles Jr. and Sr.
Summary: "...[H]e murdered the Muggle man who had abandoned his witch mother, and, for good measure, his Muggle grandparents, thus obliterating the last of the unworthy Riddle line and revenging himself upon the father who never wanted him." - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 17: A Sluggish Memory
Artist's Note: This is the breaking point for Tom, Jr. I think, so I tried to make him as monstrous as I could without losing the handsome features that were his trademark. I hope it worked. :)
