The Abyss Gazes Back by alicexz The Abyss Gazes Back 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.

Companion piece to this. Harold Finch, partner of John Reese and mystery figure of Person of Interest. Tried to go with a more somber color scheme which I thought fit his character more; also worked in the cracked glass of the case board!

Portrait set on Tumblr for reblog!

The cracked glass foreground picking up the light sets a perfect mood for this study. Another fave.

I'm new to DA but since a year I love to watch your artwork. Nietzsche's quote and the cracked glass in your picture suit Harold Finch so well - because of his past mistakes both his body and soul are broken (hope that sounds not too dramatic). <3

I didn't really expect to find fanart for Person of Interest.

So I was blown away when I found this set, and right out of the water when it was of this quality.

I'm very impressed. Beautiful work. You've captured a beautiful, sombre, and dramatic view of Harold.

Perfect quote to go along with a prodigious piece of artwork. I spent minutes staring at it because it remarkably grasps the nature of Finch's frame of mind.
