This doesn’t violate my blog rule. It’s an original joker, in an unoriginal posture. The face is the result of me making painful grimaces in a mirror until I thought I had the right expression, then sketching on a canvas. The pose is from one of those cliche comic convention dudes who had the right garb, but the face just wasn’t doin’ it for me. I always imagined the purest joker would look something like this. I’m gonna paint a “funny” tie pattern in the second sitting when I paint hic clothes. Eh…I also have to tighten the face and everything else.
First sitting: oil on canvas
I would kill to paint covers for Joker graphic novels.
