The Joker by jossielara The Joker by jossielara
My Joker Illustration! :sing:

Finally, after many, many days of sorrows, I finally finished it!
My first complex digital painting!

Later on, I'll publish the tutorial x this, so keep in touch! :w00t!:

Especial thanks to Tom Roney :hug: for all of his advice and suggestions! :aww:

Photo-reference: Hart-Worx! Photo Art!

I think the model here has a UNIQUE face!
You can have the lights right but definitely NOT everybody can perform a grin like that without the aid of makeup!
Super AWESOME expression! that's what inspired this FanArt illustration.

I Hope u enjoy it! :love:

I REALLY want to thank you all for all your comments, receiving the DailyDaviations is AMAZING!!!

Now just to clear out some comments like:
"I love it! MEN", "thanks for sharing! DUDE"... or "Don't know if u r BOY or a GIRL, this is cool!"... Well, here's one question for u:

Why EVERYONE assume that this was done by a GUY???

So, nOp, I'm not a men, and YES, this was done by a GIRL! :o XD

I Hope u enjoy it! :sing:

The Joker by ~jossielara
From the suggester:
"It's incredibly realistic, despite the many vivid and no so realistic colors. The teeth make me cringe and the eyes make me shiver. The lighting is quite impressive too, and should not be overlooked." ( Suggested by SweetYuya and Featured by rydi1689 )

A very nice Joker piece. I really enjoy how realistic it is. I like the little details, like the scars and things. Very well done.

Excellent art piece here, looks like it would be something I would buy at a comic convention.
GreyAreaRK1 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014
Wow, great joker!
QuantumBranching Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
An anatomically believable (none of the usual grotesque elongation) yet still super-creepy "classical" Joker portrait. A beautiful job.
StokeTheRage Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Student General Artist
I love this so much. He's so stunning!! Your detail is exquisite and... I kind of want to pet his hair despite how evil he is XD
I kind of used this as a reference, and I'd like to post it, but first I thought I'd ask you if that's alright, (of course giving you credit for it )

Cakiepie Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013
Oh my god, the detail, this is amazing!
Artisan91 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Gorgeous artwork!! I love the face shape and structure. I really like the depth of the hair. The little details are beautiful; the lipstick smudges, his cuts and bruises, even the wrinkles in his gloves, costume and face. His face is also very emotive. This caught my eye the moment I saw it.
Jeff-66 Featured By Owner May 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've been on DA for over a year now, and IMO, this piece is in the top 10 on the entire site.

Absolutely incredible.
Thejokerind Featured By Owner May 4, 2013

I wasn't impressed at first when I saw the thumbnail, but I clicked on it anyway. Wow, was I wrong! As soon as I zoomed in and saw all of the beautiful details, I just fell in love with this picture!
jossielara Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
^^, thanks! believe it or not, finding the right pose of the hand showing the card was the more stressful part.

Rambling-anthology Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Professional Writer
This is cool, I love the detailing (like his cuts, crazy eyebrows, and wtf teeth). Forgive me for freaking out, but this is totally badass! Glad to see young women on this site doing stuff other than chibi adopts...You just earned yourself a watcher.
jossielara Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
