Why so serious? -The Joker- by kyla79 Why so serious? -The Joker- by kyla79
Yeah, the Joker in "the Dark Knight" was just :heart:

This is my tribute to this wonderful character.

Good job, Heath Ledger...

I like a lot how you mix curves with pointy edges. It gives your drawing a very unique touch :) And also, I just LOVE how you nailed down the Joker's personality without making him look like Heath at all! It's like your own version of the Joker, and it's absolutely AWESOME! :D

Me favs! :w00t:

Awesome possum~
The only thing is, he looks a little TOO evil... the Joker should always look like he's playing a joke on someone, but that's just my opinion! ^^;

Fantastic job capturing the greatness of that performance, such a shame we won't be seeing him again to the same standard :(

Just a thought, would love to see you do your own interpretation of the scene where he intimidates Rachel, sure everyone else would too :)

this is awesome.
no other word for it, it is amaseing how you cand capture the raw essence of a character but still maintine an original take on him/her/it.
wonderful, and very refreshing. this is, personally what i look for in fanart, not portraits, because while they are sometimes masturfully done, if you want to see an almost photographic image of a character,just google him, ya know? otherwise you just get distracted by anatomical mistakes.
dont get me wrong, i thinks portrait drawing is also beautiful, i just prefer some use of imagination in art.
again, wonderful.

Oh, man, the Joker in "Dark Knight" was incredible, probably the best Joker in a live-action movie ever. It stayed so close to the spirit of the comic. Heath Ledger's acting on that was amazing. Great job on drawing this, by the way. ^_^ I loved that movie.
