Joker painting

This is a painting done during HeroesCon this past Summer and auctioned off during their big Saturday night art auction. I worked very large on this one with the board measuring around 20X30" and done in watercolor, prismacolor and chalk pastels.
When I was a kid it seemed like there were these really creepy clown paintings that every kid seemed to have in their room so I was kind of going for that type of look.

Hope you dig!

A wonderful new version on the Joker. I like that he doesn't have the white clown makeup, normal skin tones suit this one and that wild green spiky hair great job. I know you were going for the scary clown picture and yes i had one as a kid,scared the hell of me then,now have a great appreciation of the character that's why I am such a big Joker fan today I think. You made him scary. bravo

I LOVE this!! I have been trying to find an image of Harley Quinn with an AK47 to compliment the beautiful Mary Jane image that you did that is now on my arm... is there anyway to get you to maybe sketch something like that up to kinda coincide with Ms. Watson??

Hey Mark this is a really good piece, very different from you your usual style....in a good way though!

I really look up to you as an artist, I've probably told you that at some point in the past but I'm saying it again. I added you on Facebook so I can ask you art related stuff if its cool with you. My name is Kosta, cool thanks a lot man keep up the awesome work!

sorry; just a small critique: he looks more like he's growling angrily than smiling insanely because you drew both sets of teeth. Usually when someone smiles, you only sees the top set of teeth. Of course, I've seen people pull it off with maniac smiles with two sets of teeth, but it's always harder, and in your case the joker looks kinda pissed off.

Incredible!!
I love too much your dynamic style!
He's wearing a Watchmen badge. That's crazy tight. Way to pay homage.
