Rorschach by Alkmerethiel Rorschach by Alkmerethiel
“…Looked at the sky through smoke heavy with human fat and God was not there. The cold, suffocating dark goes on forever, and we are alone. Live our lives, lacking anything better to do. Devise reason later. Born from oblivion, bear children, hell-bound as ourselves, go into oblivion. There is nothing else. Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague Metaphysical Forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not Fate that butchers them or Destiny that feeds them to the Dogs. It’s us. Only us…
… Does that answer your questions, Doctor?”

- Rorschach, Watchmen Chapter VI: The Abyss Gazes Also

Watchmen 4: Rorschach (aka Walter Kovacs...but really not lol)

In front is the ink blot test Dr. Malcolm shows him, and in back are falling papers from his diary and one from The Charlton Home.

Used: HB, and 6B pencils. His is the only without a color, because he sees everything in terms of black and white.

Awesome! I like this! Rorschach is my favorite Watchmen character. :D

the ink blot either looks like a dog with it's head spit open.....ooooooor a happy family of bunnies. I can't decide.
Alkmerethiel Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2009
You could compromise and think of bunnies from Watership Down :D

dude, they plucked Rorshach from the comic and put him in the movie i swear!! They got the best actor (voice and look-wise) to play him. it's crazy, but it's crazy good. :D
Alkmerethiel Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2009
I know, right? He looked perfect for the part. It's pretty much impossible to ask for a better casting of Rorschach in that movie.

And thanks for the faves! ^_^
Sino-Mustang Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009
Right?? lol, you're welcome! :D

You could put Watchmen 4: Rorschach (previously Walter Kovacs) if you want to.
btw I love a knights tale

This is really awesome, may I use this as make-up inspo? I will credit you, the picture, and of course the comics. I don't have my comic book with me and I love this picture you did of Rorschach. ^-^
Alkmerethiel Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009
Of course you can use it, I'm really honored you like it that much ^_^
NeonGlitterTrash Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009
I do! I was trying to find a picture that represents him (Rorschach.) and this picture fit perfectly, I will probably post it up tonight ^-^
Alkmerethiel Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2009

I'm like Rorschach in many ways.
curioyegg Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2009
This is gorgeous. Miraculously gorgeous. That sentence didn't make any sense.

Anyway, it's really nice. Good job on Rorscach!

AAahhhhhhhhhh! This is so weird, I was just writing in my journal how I need to finish Watchmen, and I'm also scrolling down my messages, and the first thing I see is your Ozzymandias drawing.


I love the entire set of drawings, amazing job! :D :D :D :D
