Question. how do you get the pencil to make such perfect straight lines in the shading. when i shade is just looks like a mass of scribbles

Awesome work dude.

Got the proportion and shading perfect.

Makes me want to draw Rorscach.

Did you use a reference?

Shading looks really smooth and flows well throughout.

Nice one :)

Alan Moore is crazy, but if he wasn't crazy, I don't think Rorschach would have been made. So I'm very happy with it :D
I love this peace, the texture is amazing :) You did it very well.

Did you do a profile shot in order to give the face a sense of definition instead of foreshortening the nose, which often gets lost in full frontal shots of the face?

RogueDerek Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2006
Actually, yes. I thought it'd be an interesting switch to draw a portrait of him since you almost always see Rorschach drawn either facing forward or in 3 quarter moon shots (mostly to take advantage of the ink blots). I ust wanted to try something different. Incidently, I did end up drawing a forward facing sketch of him afterwards. [link]

excellent shading, it looks very realistic, I like the effect of the crosshatching of the pencils along the scarf and neck.

The way you've made the splotches solid black really enhances the picture.

Rorschach is my favourite character from the Watchmen because he is the most fascinating example of how the superheros blur the line between good and evil... he's one of the more horrific "heroes", yet he does what he does out of a sense of what's right, and in the end he almost seems to be the most noble character.
