I almost started to hate Joker, i think you can understand, they throw him everywhere. Sir, you have changed my mind.

Thank you, glad I could rekindle that flame :) I can understand your frustration with him being over used. I would probably feel the same if I followed the monthly comics. As it is now I pick up the graphic novels and collections that spark my interest.

This is amazing piece, you've captured the look of the Joker and also the film noir look. Also for some reason the shape of his face and features reminds me of President Obama! :)

this is good, but where i think you captured catwoman noir spot on, you didn't capture the madness that is the joker. he's not sinister enough - perhaps a more manic grin for this maniac. '

Yeah, I see your point. My take on him is more subtle and drawn back but he would get the full blown maniacal grin at certain point but I can understand if itīs not for everyone :)

To be fair, a more subtle approach would reflect the period more accurately. I just find the maniacal nature of the Joker to be delicious when it's dark. Still, your work is wonderful.

Yeah, me too. Thatīs the reason Iīm not overly fond of Ledgerīs Joker (itīs still a good character and well acted, itīs just not the Joker to me). Itīs dark but not maniacal. Thanks :)

This is so cool looking. I like how subtle it is with the slight grin in the shadows, with a nice node to the classic Joker playing card from the start.

Same as Panelgutter: this is just an awesome serie you're performing! I think that that the Batman's Universe in the 30' is a really interesting and likely idea! :D

bumhand Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! I think most superheroes have an era that suits them particularly well, for instance; Iīm not very interested in Spider-man right now, but set him in the 50s and Iīd read that book for sure!! Batman for me is very versatile when it comes to this stuff though, you can make him work in basically any setting.

Thank you :) Itīs my least favorite out of the four but Iīm glad you like it. My boss thinks it looks like him and maybe heīs right, I mightīve made him look so sinister by making him look like my boss.

Bummer, the style of the Joker in this totally fits the Noir era you were going for. Though...it does border a bit on the the Dick Tracy type of goon. That may not be a total bad thing.

Nah, for me the Joker here isnīt one of the top dogs so he can be a bit of a silly goon :)
