"No Surprises" - Walter by SilentKW "No Surprises" - Walter by SilentKW
A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't, they don't speak for us
I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent, silent

This is my final fit, my final bellyache with

"No Surprises" - Radiohead

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finished! Fulltime work is killing me and preventing me from having time to draw, so I'm pretty much only able to really draw on weekends. So, look forward to weekends guys lol.

The amazing (and uber hott!) Jackie Earle Haley as Walter Kovacs from the Watchmen film. That movie was amazing and JEH took my breath away as Rorschach. I encourage everyone to see the film.

I truly hope he enjoys and likes this drawing when he gets around to viewing it (I'm aware that he's really busy filming Nightmare on Elm Street right now).

------------------------------------------------------------------

Time: I have no freakin idea
Materials: 2H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B on bristol
Reference: "Watchmen: Portraits" book, which is filled with truly beautiful photographs. Luckily I found one on sale
A/N: I do not own the original photograph/reference, nor do I own Watchmen or the film. Both belong to the genius Alan Moore and Warner Bros. If I did own them, I would not be working fulltime at an amusement park.

Beautiful! You did a great job capturing Walter's "essence" in this. Everything you need to know about him is right here; particularly in his face. Excellent, excellent work!

I´m a Comic-Fan and a little cineast, but I was pretty disappointed with Watchmen, my sister also.
I didn´t liked the photography of it, and it didn´t made sense to me. They wanted to show how Heroes without special powers "work" in real life, and than that guy with ultimate powers. Hmmm, and that spray-can-scene... such a lame scene THAT big made up.
But your drawing is awesome. =)
I´d like to see a different background, some snow or so.

Your perfection in this matches Jackie's performance as the ultimate role model. :clap: I admire Rorschach, but I identify with Walter. That peacenik Ozymandias might call him a "sociopath," but he's really the exact opposite. He's something more dangerous...a militant empath. :mwahaha: :XD:

Wonderful pencil work, and I find it incredibly unnerving that he seems to stare right back at me as I look at him.

Again, I had to second-guess myself when I looked at the blown up version of this drawing. Mirroring sullen-skrewt's remarks on the INSANE detail in the hair and neck, and face, and eyes, and... everything :blush: I'm freakin' jealous, to say the least.
Are you taking any art courses/classes, as I know you're only ... 19 right now, so you wouldn't have any majors, right?
Think I'm going to have to favourite every single one of your drawings though, they're so, FREAKING LEGENDARY AWESOME!!!! :D ... :blush: :blush: :blush: :blush:
