Classic Joker by memorypalace Classic Joker by memorypalace
I felt like drawing the Joker

But which Joker to draw? There are so many, and I nearly did 'Batman RIP' Joker, before I realised that I didn't have a pic of the 'classic' Joker in my own style. So here he is.

I'm actually pretty pleased with this, particularly the hand holding the gun, for some reason. I have a feeling that this will look better in full view, too.

Also, read his speech in the Mark Hamill voice for full effect

I Like This Style You Did With The Joker,I Find Him To Be Crazier Than The Usual Joker(And For Once,I Think Another Voice Actor Other Than Mark Hamill Will Be Perfect And Compatible With This Design)

Thank you, you are very kind :D
I hadn't considered a voice when I did this, I do like the John DiMaggio version, though :shrug:

Yes, we all love the classic Joker, but cmon! "RIP" Joker was kinda awesome too! he had a more psicho look but he was more sane... well, He actually WAS sane... He told that to Robin ._. ...

Yes he did :D
I think that started with a Paul Dini story, Joker is sane and puts on the act. I think it's a great idea! :)

Its the best idea ever :B
Some writers treated him like a "crazy" person... and I mean like "really crazy" person (cof-cof-last-laugh-cof-cof) So maybe after all is just his way to avoid death warrant... Jeez! I love when the Joker get his way!

The stupid one from The Batman, that looks like a cross between a rasta and Gollum.

Classic comics and the 90s animatd are the best. The new animated one looks awful.

I didn't know classic Joker had different coloured eyes...? I really like this, thanks for sharing! And yeah! Mark Hamill!

Thank you :D His eyes are only different colours when I draw him, it's something I try to add any time I draw the Joker, it represents his stop/go personality :XD:

Joker: Mhhhmm.

Oops, I wanted to mean , the gloves . :D
Reply
:iconmemorypalace:
memorypalace Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010
Ah, I should have realised :O
I usually draw him without gloves, mainly because I think he's too crazy to care about leaving fingerprints, and I like giving him black fingernails :D

I see, even if I'm used that he wears gloves . :D I saw your Joker version. He's pretty cool , you mixed some versions ,huh ?

Love the style! Its looks wonderful!
I love the different colored eyes, and I the hand holding the gun is PERFECT! I have done that position of the hand on a gun...And it actually quite hard with out good refferance. But this is perfcet! Just wonderful!

Thank you for such a kind comment :D

If you browse my gallery, you'll see I always give the Joker different coloured eyes. I see him as a mood-swing machine and the red/green = stop/go :D
Oh, and I referenced my own hand holding some videogame gun :O You're right, it seems a simple thing, but it's surprisingly hard

Thanks again!

I realised that all my Joker pics were 'alternative' (1980's, Disney etc) so it was time for some classic Mr.J :D
