Nite Owl and Rorschach by WKenney Nite Owl and Rorschach by WKenney
Well, it had to happen eventually. While waiting for the Watchmen movie, I re-read my copies of the comic books and was inspired to do some fan art. This is the first one that I finished. I have some others in the works. There is a Watchmen art contest running at a local comic shop, so it's cool that I was going to do this art anyway.
So, I entered. We'll see how I do. The prize is some Watchmen stuff. Wish me luck. I can't see the movie until next weekend but I hear it's cool...Can't wait to check it out.

I am open to commissions right now. Just email me and we will talk specifics.

Thanks for looking.
William Kenney

Edit: Hey, I won! Gotta cool prize pack. It was a lot of fun. Thanks to the guys at Star Clipper.

I really love the angle of this, as well as how the coloring is a lot like the graphic novel. I can see why you won!

Hey, thanks a lot for the compliment! Yeah, I wanted to evoke the same feeling as the graphic novel and the angle made it seem as if they were really flying.

really nice! Looks like it could have come straight out of the graphic novel!

I rather like those "partners-in-crimefighting" scenes between Rorschach and Nite Owl...it just gives a different perspective of their relationship altogether, before everything hit the ceiling and everything fell apart.

Yeah, that's kinda the idea I had for this image. This shot could be from the "old days" or from when they are on their way to Ozymandias' lair. Anyway, it shows the partnership and admiration that they have for one another, I think.
Thanks for the comment and for adding the image to your collection.

This is truly delightful. Not only does it look fantastic but because of this pic it suddenly dawned on me that Archie's steering 'wheel' (that Nite Owl is controlling) looks quite phallic. I've honestly never spotted that before *slaps forehead*. Yet another easter egg in the GN to add to the collection :). Hey, I've only read it about 20+ times XD

Brilliant work!

Thanks a lot. Yeah, Nite Owl is definitely a cool character as is Rorschach. One of the coolest stories in comics.

Totally. I feel that, unlike Frank Miller, Alan Moore can write very realistic characters. He even made it possible with The Joker! Now, THAT'S talent. =P
