The Joker by EmeraldWolf77 The Joker by EmeraldWolf77
A picture of the Joker, edited by me. Pardon the squares, I'm griding it and going to paint it in acrylics. :] Photoshopped.

"The actor is Conrad Veidt as Gwynplaine in 1929's THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. It is this character that would inspire Bill Finger and Bob Kane to give birth to The Joker." - ~Sonic1002

Many thanks go to ~Sonic1002 for that bit of information. I'm glad I can get my facts straight now, lol.

Thank you. :]

Conrad Veidt was the bomb. If you haven't seen The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, I highly recommend it. I love the idea of modeling a version of the Joker after Veidt.

If it wasn't for Conrad Veidt apparently, Heath Ledger never would've had that role (that I hope will be amazing), lol. Thanks though.

I liked the background even more than the face actually. ^.^;

I don't know if I'll be able to pull it off. If I do, I'll post a picture of it on here. But I really liked the photoshopped version :D

That's not what he looks liek at all. That's highly innaccurate. Don't wanna be a jerk,I mean,it's good artwork. But that don't look a think like Heath Ledger's Joker.

Very sorry, and I'll correct that in my description. Here's the original link I got the pic from [link] . I looked at the site it was on, and they said it was one of the many false images of the new joker going around. I didn't think it looked like Heath at all, but shrugged it off as just good makeup. Sorry about that ^.^
