Rorschach. From the darkness. by NakadaiShimada Rorschach. From the darkness. by NakadaiShimada
12 x 24'' Oil on Canvas.

I didn't really know what to Call this one, nearly went with ''The end is nigh.'' lol.
Anyway, I said this one was coming up, unfortunately this photo has not entierly done the painting justice, it's just not as sharp as it could be, and it doesn't show the brush strokes aswell as it could. But I just wanted to get an image of it up, as I was so happy I'd actually got it finished!
I think this was about 25 hours work over about a week. There are areas I'm not 100% happy with, but I can't entierly put my finger on whats wrong with it.. I'll look at it over the next few days/week and look closely at what I don't like as much.
There are areas I'm very happy with however, the textures of the coat in general I'm pretty chuffed with.
I shall try to get a better picture of this to do it justice, rather than being sat on the floor just infront of it with a Digicam lol.
Let me know what you think of it, I'm planning other fan art/personal concepts in the same style, let me know who you think! :)

Enjoy!~

Rorschach does not belong to me, but THIS art is MINE.

The blending on the shading is effin' amazing.
Just curious, do you block out each value and blend or do you lay down the base colours and then shade and such?

Yeah. I took one of the press release photos from Star Trek and photoshopped the top hat and monocle on. :meow:

Thanks very much.
With this piece I think I blocked out each area in base, then blended the shading, it's in oil, so I had a lot of time to blend the colours through. I think with this one I may even have blended the colours as I layed the base down, worked with it quite hap-hazardly to get it looking right, then worked it up.
