Thank you. I absolutely love Rorschach and painting him was always going to be something I enjoy doing :nod:

Awesome painting. I've yet to see the movie, but I just finished the comic. I'm a bit edgey now, wondering how they could pack the sheer magnitude of Watchmen into two hours...But I'm sure they did their best.

I really like the stubble, but for some reason the nose amuses me the most. I can recall that panel from the comic and it's one that makes me grin. Love this.

Second favourite movie, second favourite character in the movie (rock on, Comedian!), added to favourites.

I could say why it is so nice, but i think that has been explained enough by others :)

xxTmaar Featured By Owner May 5, 2010
Seriously, my hand would've fallen off trying to paint that... My God, the stubbles! And the details aren't even funny anymore; his semi-chapped lips, the way the mask folds around his ear..Guah.. :crying: IT'S TOO PRETTY!!

Congrats for the Daily Deviation! It deserves it. :D
Benzene-c6h6 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Why is this sight so appealing, why?!? It must be his want of baked beans, methinks. Great detail on the chin hair and the double-wammy of clefts. :)
sullen-skrewt Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2009
His urge for the Heinz is cuddle-worthy. Don't think he'd appreciate a hug though XD

Thank you so much. Yeah that cleft is immense! :D
JustSheir Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2009

*complete adoration* D: It's. Amazing. I. I have no words it's just. Wow. Fantastic! Breathtaking! I LOVE it! You're just. Like. Awesome. I'd think of another word for it but, sadly, that's all I can think of on as little sleep as I've had. Seriously, however, magnificient job.
sullen-skrewt Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
Thank you so much :hug: This is one of those paintings were it seemed to go right for me. Quite a lot of the time, paintings get scrapped and spat at because they go pear shaped and I can't do anything right by them, but this is one of those rare projects that decided not to frustrate me XD
