Why so serious? by patricktoifl Why so serious? by patricktoifl
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT ALL THE DETAILS ON MY WEBSITE: [link]

You can also see a close-up of Heath Ledger as "The Joker" here: [link]

First of all I have to say that it was a pleasure to work on this! A great visionary filmmaker has finally pulled it off and made The Dark Knight how he always should have been!

I know a lot of people have painted Heath Ledger as "The Joker" recently, but I really see why!!! From the gorgeous make-up-design to the top-notch acting he is "The Joker". Too bad this young talented actor passed away at such a young age ... RIP Heath Ledger!

I am very pleased with the end-result and hope you like it too!

Very nice! :D the lighting is amazing, and the whole piece looks very real :3

It was not traced. I can't say it often enough.

I tried to copy the original image as exactly as possible and spent lots and lots of hours on it.

No, I tend not to pay attention because I have enough drama to deal with at home. But I was poking around, as I'm annoying like that (and some of the comments tend to be somewhat amusing), and thought I'd point that out.

That's an incredible piece of work! I can't believe it's not a photo!

If there's one thing I learned from The Dark Knight, it's that if you're ever interrogating someone, never start with the head, cos the victim gets all fuzzy.

I like this image a great deal, the only two problems I see is the joker's hair and Batman's skin seems too peach-coloured. I think if the hair was darker and more greenish it would make it look a lot more realistic. Anyway, great job with the image! major props.

Wow, thank you very much! Glad you like it!!!

Yeah - a lot of people have told me that they have a problem with the hair! I was stylizing a few parts too much I think! I wanted to get the appearance of the hair right. When I saw the movie I had a feeling about how the hair looks and I wanted to recreate that in the picture.

Maybe I will do a revision of the piece!
