The Joker and Rachel Dawes by sullen-skrewt The Joker and Rachel Dawes by sullen-skrewt
Ahahahaaaa!!! :batman:

This is a still of the Joker threatening Rachel in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight. Painted from an image I found somewhere on'tinternet.

I have to say, I wasn't hugely impressed with the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker in the beginning, but frankly he's grown on me and now I can't wait to see what he does with the character. I reckon he'll do a cracking job.

All rights Warner Bros etc...

Da na na na na na naaa Batman!!!

Acrylic on canvas. Funnily enough, crapscan was in a good mood :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-07-26
The Joker and Rachel Dawes by *sullen-skrewt -- Since the release of the movie 'The Dark Knight,' I've been swamped with suggestions for Joker fan art to be recognized. It is very important to me that the members help dictate the fandoms shown through DDs, and even though there have been a few Joker Daily Deviations in the past, I told myself I would post one when the right one was suggested. And here it is. A few people have suggested this one, and I hope you enjoy it as deeply as they do, and appreciate it as much as I do. PS. There are lots of Joker fan art in this gallery!

Wow......You actually made Rachel look good in this or at least better than in the movies, I really don't know how all the men fall in love with her, I mean am I missing something? I thought that both the actresses didn't look that good but anyways Nice Job!

That is wonderfully done! :omfg: I wish Heath Ledger was still alive, he probably would've been in the sequel. :tears: All the same, he went out with a great performance! :D

Go ahead Joker...I never liked her anyways, how could someone as awesome as Harvey fall for an idiot like this one? I mean even Jonathan didn't like her in Batman Begins, and I can't blame him..Someone as badass as Scarecrow having his plans interfered by someone like Rachel...
But that's enough hate, Really nice job :)!

I am glad they kill that fugly chick off. She was such a bad choice. Who made that cocaine induced decision? Maggie Gyllenhaal == woof.
Spidey0107 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009
Because of this painting, (and due to me being a MASSIVE The Dark Knight fan) I started doing my own painting of it (taken from the movie screenshot though)...
Absolutely brilliant!! And so different from the usual artwork we see from TDK..

Keep up the awesome work dude!!!

Look forward to seeing more!!

(BTW, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your other artwork too!!!!!)
sullen-skrewt Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2009
Fantastic stuff. I'm really pleased that it's inspired you in some way...That's pretty much one of the biggest compliments I could get as an artist. Totally chuffed about that.

Love to see your painting once it's done.

I'll be uploading some more art soon, including a not so incredibly good one of Two-Face who is conspicuous in his absence on this gallery XD.
Spidey0107 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
Do not put your work down so much.. Two-Face is awesome!!! This is the kind of quality (and obv to get better again) that I'm aiming to achieve in my paintings..
I've only been painting for about a year, and feel I'm improving all the time :)

Looking forward to seeing more!!
