I know that the space between his finger and his face is pitch black, yet on the other side of that finger is all white. But believe me, that's how the reference photo was. After I cropped it and converted it to B&W that is ;)

Kinda of a quick one for me. I had trouble with the eyes. They seemed too small and the quality of the photo was not good, so I had to make up details. I made his beard a little thicker than it was.

"WHY SO SERIOUS??? LET'S PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE!!"
:D:D

I loved the expression in this photo, and have not seen anyone draw this one before, but it was not high res, and I have to imagine some of the details. Most photos of him are slightly out of focus screen shots from the movie vs him posing for his photo in make-up? I also didnít waste my time trying to reproduce the dots on his shirt collar either. The reference photo looks clear enough, but the larger you make it, the more pixelated it gets. I couldn't really go wrong though with the makeup. Unlike the details of a normal person, messy make-up is messy make-up, so it didnít really matter that I didnít try to copy this 100%?

I've seen others draw this in the past, and I always knew I would one day. Well, I finally did it? I was most challenged by all the tiny buildings in the reflection of his glasses.
