The Joker by Nero749 The Joker by Nero749
I'd wanted to do something with the brilliant Joker from The dark Knight for a while now, but I didn't, for obvious reasons...

Anyway, how could I ever draw a Joker without colour :XD: so I decided to use charcoal and coloured pencils... It was hell, I can tell you! and there are pieces of paper where I used so many layers it was starting to flake...

It all ended well, thankfully and I'll probably use colour in my charcoal drawings again sometime :)

Oh, this is great! It has a bit of an eerie feeling, which suits the Joker of course! I like how you managed to make the table and his clothes shine a bit. Great job!

Heath Ledger's verison of the Joker makes Jack Nicklson's verison look like a circus clown. I definitely think Heath Ledger went out with a bang as the Joker & that he deserved an award for that part.

How on earth did you even get charcoal and colored pencils to work together?? Wow. It really looks great, it's got a grungy photo feel which works perfectly with the subject, and then that bright and lurid red! Well done :)

Well, what you do is add both of them in thin layers... Layer charcoal, layer coloured pencil etc. Otherwise they don't blend :O And i added the highlights to the jacket with a lighter shade of green, because obviously an eraser wouldn't work :O

I know! I was working on it and thought 'this is never going to work' and I wanted to clean it up (sharpen the lines, get rid of smudges etc) but it suddenly struck me that it worked for the Joker :D
