Joker by francis001 Joker by francis001
This is a pretty old piece, but I thought in honor of the late Heath Ledger I could upload it here.

Love to see a story about this Joker. He must be like this occasionally to oversee construction on his latest death trap.

love how eerily calm he appears… a great idea… he scares me more in this rendition than how the madman is usually portrayed as a cackling fool… :wow: :clap:

The Joker meets the G-man? "Good morning m-mister Freeman, not to imply you have been sleeping on the job"...

It's cool to see a Joker pic that's toned down. I like the style. Nice!

u seem like a pro in the comic business
and u paint and draw great
but i can't imagine the joker like this, "calm"
i could imagine him crying but not that sure and calm and sophisticated

I really like his reserved manner, like he's planing when to gouge your eyes out

I don't know why, but I've always liked this supressed, in-control version of the Joker. The cigarette is an especially nice touch.

Totally! And the subtelty of his face (dis)coloration makes him seem more ominous and less silly than some other takes on the character.

Tremendous piece! It has the dark feel I always imagined the batman nemesis characters should have. The Dark Knight with Ledger is actually the first film I have seen with Batman as the focal point that seemed anywhere near how I imagined Gotham and its evil inhabitants would really be like. I will be adding this thumb to my journal in the hopes that more people can enjoy your enormous talent!

What a non convencional picture of Joker. It's always a wonder to see somethin presented in a different style than the usual one.
I love all those tones you reached on his face. Makes it look more realistic, no matter how stylized the picture is.
The picture feels very warm with the orange lighting on the right as if from a fire place or something.
And of course. R.I.P. Heath Ledger. This is a nice memorial, even if not the Joker he plays.

This is fantastic!

I really like how you did his fingers, all bony and claw-like - they remind me of great large spiders. And the black fingernails were a nice touch as well!

Cheers!
