I came across this drawing years ago and fell in love with it. I didn't have a DA account back then and forgot who drew it. now I can finally tell you what this drawing means to me... best tom riddle there ever was, ever will be. my respects.
Okay, I have no idea if this has been said (I got tired of going through comments after three pages), but it is NOT just me: he looks like David Tennant. I think it's the narrow face, hair and torso ...
I love how he seems surprised, yet entranced. Seeing this locket was one of the few things that threw off his handsome-charming facade. I especially love how the light seems almost sinister...it throws all his gauntness into sharper relief.

I like how you did his eyes. In my opinion those red eyes have been a mistake by J.K. Rowling, they're so lame...but here, they look natural, which is good.
Powerful picture, his expression is great. You can see how much he wants to have that locket. He creeps me out XD
The loose and painterly effect you used here really adds to the creepiness of the scene - not to mention *using* the shiny bit as a light source-ish. This is actually one of my favorites of your recent color jobs. It's just so spontaneous! Yeah, yeah, I'm a jerk...
I love this one. I like that you cut out all of Hepzibah's junk laying around. It helps to emphasize what is going on with Tom because this scene is so pivotal and you know how much that locket means to him.
