The world will look up and shout "save us". And he will look down and whisper "no"

Sorry. Had to.
I love the rain. I can almost feel the wind.

Wow.. GREAT work of art, here :) I'll have to look into your entire gallery, now.

Whatchyou talking about.. I LOVE his pose :]. Twas what I first noticed that had me fall in love with this.. & I love the falling rain as well :D.

I saw this movie 2 days ago, also.. I didn't know what to expect; I've never read the comics.
But I thought the directing was BRILLIANTLY & beautifully well done :]. I fell hard for the character Rorschach.. Was infuriated to see him go, though :[.

I'm gonna definitely have to get ahold of those comics somehow.. They sound amazing :o From what I'm reading in all the "artist's comments".

Anyhow, keep up the grand work :) *faves*.

Yep, the comic books are masterpieces. The movie wasn't bad at all, Snyder did a good job. I guess I'm just too much of a fanboy xD

Tnx a lot man, glad you like!

What? So you didn't like the film all that much? :)

Well actually.. I musta been in a overly good mood at the time of me writing my first one xD.
To be honest, I'll say; I only REALLY enjoyed about the first hour 1/2 o.O.
After somewhere around that point it just started weirding me out xP.
But I think it jus means I need to read the series to appreciate :D.

Someday..

:) Thank YOU.

It was an "ok" film I guess. Graphic novel was better ;D

I think the movie was great, it's just too bad you can't fit all that detail into 3 hours. Sure, some things were changed, such as merging of scenes and....I won't spoil it but I feel the director kept very true to the novel...unlike others that ruin potentially good stories with Hollywood remake crap.

Rorschach looks great :) and the rain falling unto him!

Tnx!

I think Snyder did a pretty good job. I just didn't feel the anxiety of Armageddon build up on the film which I think is what the graphic novel was about. I also didn't feel attached to the characters in the film as I did on the graphic novel... Their backstory seemed rushed in the film.

I'm looking forward the D-cut. I'm sure it'll bring the movie closer to the original material.

I think the pirate sub-plot's exclusion also dragged it down. I did miss the "alien" squid though :(

jbballaran Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009   Digital Artist
They're gonna include the pirate stuff in the D's cut... I think.

It would've been a really memorable scene if they included the squid. Although I honestly think that the whole squid thing at the end of the graphic novel came out a bit forced for me and I never really liked the idea that much.

Yeah same sentiments here as well, a lot of things got lost in the transition from GN to film. There were some parts in scenes I felt weren't really necessary (300 reference? :puke: plus the fight scene in the prison.)
I also think the movie didn't fully capture the atmosphere of the comic. It just didn't feel too 80's-ish for me.

Absolutely loved the opening montage and Rorschach's scenes though.

jbballaran Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009   Digital Artist
Yep, the opening was pretty cool. I didn't dig the 80's soundtrack they were throwing in the scenes to say the least. It just didn't fit in with Snyder's visual style for me. I wish they had kept the music orchestral.

I totally agree with you, the movie definitely didn't capture that feeling you get with the comic. I actually just read it before I saw the movie and I was so sucked into the story when I got to Rorschach's chapter, it was hard to put it down after that.
Reply
:iconjbballaran:
jbballaran Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009   Digital Artist
yes Rorschach's chapter was the darkest, most disturbing part of the graphic novel. He's definitely the baddest antihero ever.

I DID think they took out a lot of that "imminent doom" feeling but personally I think they made the right decisions on what to take out most of the time. They just couldn't fit it all into a three hour run-time. Some of it might get into the directors-cut though.

back on topic though, this is an amazing picture of Rorschach. and I love the angle.

Right. It has been said before that "it can't be filmed". I can't blame Snyder for attempting though.
Reply
:iconjbballaran:
jbballaran Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009   Digital Artist
It just can't be put into one film I think. The emotions that built up in the graphic novel just can't be forced into just 1 whole movie. I think Snyder did a good job in creating a movie, It's just not THE Watchmen movie a lot of us fans were looking for.

:iconwraith11:
wraith11 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
I dunno, as a movie I think Watchmen worked well... however as Watchmen the movie was indeed a letdown. I hope that makes sense.

Awesome pic, live the lighting on on Rorschach and the rain effect is fantastic.

I hear ya. A lot of important stuff that made the graphic novel great was missing.
