That's distrubing.......... but it's also VERY realistic. I makes me believe that he can pull it off. The only thing I would like you to add to this piece is perhaps rings around the eyes, like the insomniac look. That would take this piece to an even higher level.

The Pale tone in the Skin I can do with, but (and that is from my very personal point of view) I think that the whole Joker concept will turn to crap if they go with the scar version, they can have as much as many serial butchers as they want, but there is only one Joker which has to have that very subtle ellegance and irony in all his crimes, it must be a character that no matter how young he is should be in love with antiques, for God's sake, he leaves a classic Joker playing card!!!.
If you want a scarred individual, you can have Mr. Zasz, if the Joker should have some scars in his smile... I think they must be more fine, subtle, if you get my meaning, otherwise you have Two Face. I think Ledger can play it masterfully, I really look forward to it... hell, I can even do without the purple suit. But going this way, no, I just can't see it.
Technically the image is very well done (I think the eyebrows are a little off). The concept... I JUST COMPLETELY HATE IT!!! (Sorry, nothing personal, just some kind of geeky fanboy attitude which generally I don't have)

Thanks for the comments.
Hey Trygonez, please review http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joker_(comics). As much as personal opinion is a great thing, I just wanted to point out that my basis wasn't only driven by Chris Nolan's (teaser), but was also based on a collection of different "Joker" information from his past. Just because he leaves a 'classic joker' card doesn't mean he's in love with antiques either.
"...the Joker was a straightforward mass murderer, much like a typical Dick Tracy villain, with a bizarre appearance modeled after the playing card. He was a master thief who left smiling corpses in his wake."
By me adding that he was scarred (physically), from something in his past or something he did himself, was only to stray away from Batman having anything to do w/ him having like a permanent smile.
I too am a fanboy of the genre. But I didn't want to base my interpritation on just one image or portrayal from any Joker history, and rather on what Nolan's ideas and an overall depiction of the character from his colorful past. :idea:
