More Sketches

Posted on 2007.10.29 at 18:45
 Heres some more Joker sketches... Mainly sketches of his head trying to work out some things in my minds eye. Some battles with his hair. I liked what I was getting in the final one. I do really want to do some paintings, some inked and colored ones. He's not the same unless he's in color. My teachers only rule for me this semester is that I use lots of color. I think we can do that. Hahahaha!

Okay heres the manditory cut for size and content. 

Thats always a fun cut title. lol

 Okay so here are some head sketches. 

Quick sketch messing with hair/hat. I like the Jesters hat but as a real hat. I like the idea of his hair just looking that way. This one didnt get very far. its small and quick. and well, quite crappy. 

Weeeee this one was kind of fun. I think he looks like heath ledger which is why I scraped this one I think. I don't ever want my Jokers to look like one of the actors that play him on tv/movie. esp Jack Nicolsen(sp). God he was a horrible Joker. Hardly anyones ever done him justice in film.

Larger more detailed head sketch. I dislike the ponytail hair. Or at least how neat it is on one side and messy on the other. It some how doesnt match his personality to me. the face is pretty cool though. My therapist liked the bat-bowtie the best for hidden symbolism.

Here we go. were getting much closer. I love this one! this is the last one I did. Major complaint on this one is his hair looking way too clean and shaped like the jesters hat to be his real hair despite that being my effort. I think that could be easyly fixed however. 

I wanted to write more comentary but I'm not feeling to well so I need to go. I'll come back with more body sketches and hopefully a colored verson/painting or something soon. I have one body sketch in the works of him sitting on top of a building watching Batman signal exexex.

for some reason his body keeps ending up really unperportional in that it looks like a marionette puppet. really odd.

okay so yeah. comments. thoughts. ideas. all that stuff. I'd appreciate it!!! esp from you Joker fans out there!

Thank you. I really feel like I'm going in the direction I want to with his images.

Hm! Several remind me a bit of Nasubionna's style, just around the brows. Looking forward to the rest.

Glad someone caught that. It's actually rather intentional.
