Rorschach - Watchmen
What is a Heartblade: [link]
Other Heartblades: [link]

It's friday at work, so I decided to do some mouse coloring.

Rorschach is my favorite character from Watchmen. I love the poetic nature he inhabits... being a poet himself and they symbolic disconnect between his two identities. He truly wants to die, and in a way he already has, but he also wants to make all his suffering into a lesson taught to the rest of the world. He won't kill himself, instead he'll become the beatstick the evils of the world deserve. He's seen the worst and knows what it can do to people, the worst made him what he is, and the worst needs to be punished for that.

I'm sure we all love him. This version I've drawn is kind of pre-turning point... back before he started killing his targets. Maybe it's a picture of the turning point in his character - laying his heard town on the ground and abandoning it along with his previous life.

This is really cool; I laughed a little when I saw it, but that's because I've read the graphic novel and I think the heartblade is really fitting!

About time he got one! :333

That smiley-face keychain might've used some human-bean juice on it, though. XD

I really love all the details on his keyblade - his sign, his journal, and the Comedian's button.

Lol, his end of the world sign and his journal. They're so highly appropriate.

I'm not sure whether to weep or to cheer or maybe both.
Weep for what this represents, cheer for my favorite character...

I have to think on this...
While I like Rorschach, he is by in his very nature a man who is broken. Even before he discovered the little girl murdered and butchered, he was broken.Meaning that he may not necessarily be the kind of pure heart that would receive a heartblade.
But then, the world he lives in has no truly pure people and in context, he is the best candidate.
Hmm... must investigate further.
Great art by the way.

Well the Heartblade never started as a pure heart, it started as a strong heart, which might fit more in your analysis. It's a puzzle either way.

But that hardly matters anymore, really it's how strong my heart is for them... which basically means rules be damned I'll draw whomever I please ^_^

the heartblades are a series I started years ago. I don't know about "everyone", but the heartblade originated in a KH fanfic I was plotting years and years ago. The fanfic went nowhere, but I had such a good time designing keyblades for all my crossover characters that I kept going and have since drawn 88 entries. They probably won't stop being made, and since a series isn't a series without consistency i'm going to keep calling them Heartblades
