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.

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

Did you have a bad dream after watching the movie or something?

Nope, I actually drew this before the movie came out. Listened to some Perfect Circle and this popped into my head and I drew it.

I think Snyder-man should've at least tried to get permission to use a perfect circle song in the soundtrack. 8|

That would have been nice... This whole dark theme is sort of JAmes Maynard Keen-ish. Heh. :D

Yeah.
Although I wouldn't be happy about buying the soundtrack because I have all the Maynard stuff there is. XD

Cool. Maynard is awesome. To me he has the best male singing voice, it can sound so fragile and then it suddenly turns savage! :sing:
