Conrad Veidt is the Joker by Anongamer Conrad Veidt is the Joker by Anongamer
This probably has been done before, but I wan't to give my go at it. This is Conrad Veidt, a German actor who starred in "THE MAN WHO LAUGHS", a movie which helped inspire the DC Comics villain, THE JOKER. Here is Veidt as the character he inspired.... the Joker.

This was done with GIMP.

The Joker is copyrighted to DC Comics/Warner Bros./Whoever.
The Man Who Laughs is likely copyrighted by Universal Studios.
No copyright infringement intended, this is something of an artistic experiment.


I'm still relatively new at doing stuff like this, so some comments are encouraged.

Brilliantly done. I love things with historical value. You really opened my eyes on this one. I had no clue.

This was Jerry Robinson's inspiration when he first created the Joker.

I wouldn't be surprised if Alex Ross used Veidt as a reference when he did that. He has a habit of using real people as models for his work.

And he loves to make more dramatic and epic versions of characters, German Expressionism seems a natural choice for inspiration.

That is awesome. I actually only know Veidt from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, but now at least I get the reference. :) Very clever :)
