He Who Fights Monsters by alicexz He Who Fights Monsters by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE


He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
Painting exercise. John Reese, my favorite character from the show Person of Interest! Reblog on Tumblr.

You are such a talented artist! There is something magical about your work, it evokes emotions and just makes one feel better :) Thank you so much for this! I can't wait for more pictures ^^

This painting is also incredible, I think my favourite after The Roar Of Our Stars <3

What jumped out to me about this was the mood you've captured and the mix of colours. The play of both blues and reds; as though his cool demeanor is entwined with the "evils" he's done. The pensive stance does just as much for this character as any action scene would. Lovely job on a painting excercise.

This work is amazing! I've seen alot of your work, and have always found it beautiful, but now I'm geeking out cause I love Person of Interest yet I rarely see it discussed or anything on the sites I use(and I use alot). Your art for Reese and Finch are both stunning pieces, and the names appropriate for both too!

The darkness, the fire, the contemplation. Shows so well the inner struggles, the monster within, that John is dealing with.
Your art is so very good at showing the inner souls of people.

Very nice job! It has the feel of one of those classic 1960s paperback book covers; like something by James Bama or Robert McGinnis. I likes it! :-)
