"There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'em all away from you. That's never possible" ~Atticus Finch
Of all the characters in every book I've ever read, Atticus Finch of "To Kill a Mockingbird" is probably my favorite of all time.
Not only is he a great father, but he is also a rolemodel of what we should all strive to be.
Made for my dear friend Onishi-Kuri, who requested I make a portrait of Mr.Finch
*I appreciate the kind words everyone, sadly I don't like this piece as much as I did at the time of making it initially, expect a remake or perhaps another TKaM piece soon, it really needs to be redone*
I agree completely with what you said. He is the ideal father and a role model for everyone. I used to pray that he could be my dad when I was younger. He's my favorite fictional character of all time as well.
You did a wonderful job, I love the shadow of his glasses on his face
