I'm really excited about the announcement of the Before Watchmen material. Can't you tell? I did this with acrylic inks.

Rorschach rocks and I cant wait to read the Before Watchmen series he stars in. Your use of warm and cool colors is so professional and authentic looking.

Thanks! I was experimenting with a color palette similar to what Higgins used in some of the panels in the original Watchmen. Very different colors for me and I'm glad that I got out of my comfort zone with this piece. Glad you like it too.:-)

I love this. I've been a Watchmen fan for years...however, I'm dreading the prequels. I just don't think the comic should be messed with like that, seeing as how they're not even the same writers. But I love this, and I really hope the prequels are to your enjoyment! :D

Thanks! I'm so glad you like my picture.:-) I am hopeful for the prequels if anything bc an amazing creative team is working on it who all seem to have a great love for the story and characters. I only wish Moore had chosen to work with DC on this, but I think what he created is so enduring that those working from his inspiration will surly create something worth reading... And if they don't, we can forget about what they did and just read they original.:D

I wish Moore had worked on it too. But, I'm very picky when it comes to anything Watchmen. For example, when the movie came out, I was really stoked for it and overall, I found it to be okay because I really didn't like how they changed the ending. I understand WHY they did, because if they included everything that lead up to the original ending, the movie would be at least an hour longer, and I don't think people could sit through a 4 hour movie with that complicated of a plot. Also, I'm a little ticked that they even considered doing prequels because each (important) character got their story told in the original comic. And that's one of the things that made Watchmen so cool, you get the back story and the present story combined in a beautifully drawn and written masterpiece. Sorry for this rant-ramble, I'm just excited to find Watchmen fans and talk about anything Watchmen, hehe :)

Ha, oh that's fine.:-) I get why some people a upset about the prequels because, like you said, the original work is a masterpiece. I guess it all comes down to whether you feel like the better way to honor it by just not touching it, or by exploring the rich possibilities in the character's back stories. I dont think that the creators working on the prequels want to undo anything about the original work, just build on its legacy. And if their work doesn't turn out to be great, I don't think that will detract from the original. I didn't like the movie either, but it didn't detract from the original story and it got some people to read the comic. So that's a plus..
