Rorschach's Face Is An Emotional Canvas

Illustration for article titled Rorschach's Face Is An Emotional Canvas

Probably the coolest effect in the Watchmen movie is Rorschach's shifting inkblot mask. But I didn't realize how much thought had gone into it until I saw this new video journal.


I love the fact that they gave him giant eye holes so he could still act with his eyes, in some scenes, and then they added the mask effects afterwards. Although it looks like he's just wearing a standard inkblot mask in some other scenes. I wonder why the difference?

Ror-shack? I seem to remember that the proper pronounciation of Rorscarch, raw-shark, was pretty important to the plot....
