JOKER Arkham City

JOKER - Arkham Asylum/City
11 x 14 pencil, pen and ink wash on bristol.
Based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game.


It's been a while since I updated the page - been really busy over the holidays and into the new year. Doing lots of design work (sorry can't post any of that stuff just yet).

I had just finished a comic book cover for BlueWater Comics for their upcoming Julie Newmar series and have another design gig to finish... but I needed a breather and had this commission request from a friend for his son! He wanted the Joker from the game Batman: Arkham City (or Asylum which ever) and well, I couldn't pass up doing another cool Batman piece - of course I had to squeeze in ol' Bats into it!

This one came together really fast, I'd say I put in about an hour on it... I wanted it really loose and 'manic' - pencil with some pitt pen and ink wash, and a whole lot of spatter!
I went in afterward with a brush and some ink and strengthened up the lines - and this really made it pop! - I almost hate to part with it, but an artist has to eat!

Feel free to visit me on FaceBook for even more art, and as always I'm available for commissions!
