Surreal Watchmen: Rorschach by ikka-nosferatu Surreal Watchmen: Rorschach by ikka-nosferatu
=Gunga-Diner and =SurrealismClub have permission to repost this.

"Gravity" by A Perfect Circle inspired this piece. :heart:
EDIT 3/7/09: I forgot, The Noose inspired this too. XD
Lost again
Broken and weary
Unable to find my way
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to
Just let this go
I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live


It just popped into my head and I had to draw it.

<random>Brownie points to whoever points out on which page the blot on Rorschach's mask first appears in the graphic novel! 8D

And I think this is the darkest painting in my whole gallery. :o</random>

I'm going to be doing a lot of watchmen fanart like this.. all inspired by songs I love. And it's going to be surreal and such.
And Ror is just too much fun to draw. XD

Drew this around vamlumtimes day, (yes, I just did a homestar runner quote) and my weird-ass way of doing valentine's art is incorporating love or something related into a piece I'm already doing.
Hence the blood on Ror's trench coat being in a heart pattern.
The worst part about working with this picture was having to leave the window open. When it was 10 degrees farenheit outside. Those copic markers give a really strong smell when used for five hours straight. :X

Also tried a new highlighting style with this piece, what with the white lines. I quite like it. It makes my weird tree-thing look like it has sap on it or something.




Watercolours (for the background) and copic markers on vellum bristol, 11 x 14 I think.

And Rorschach belongs to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Interestingly, I had *just* got home from purchasing the 'Thirteenth Step' album from APC when I decided to brows the Rorschach artwork on the site. The track list was right in front of me as I read your description. **Shivers**

I love your coloring technique. It seems to stay somewhat loyal to the comic-book style.

Very interesting. Looks like something Rorschach might have in a dream, or maybe not. I don't know. But I like it. What's with the spider web though? Hope a big giant spider doesn't come along and eat him. Hurm.

Thanks. :)
No, a spider's not going to eat him. And if there was a giant spider, I'd bludgeon it with a giant rolled up newspaper. XD
I have no idea what's up with the spiderweb. Half the time I can't explain the meaning of my works. XD
