Heath-as-Joker art

I know there are dozens of folks out there with Photoshop skills who can throw together a decent likeness of what Heath Ledger will look like as The Joker in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight. A guy sent me a version today that didn’t quite make it, but it put the hook in. I know this is doable & not difficult. I’ll post the best one and provide all links, etc.

    The problem is you assume it’s not difficult. Like dealing with any artist, you have to tell them how hard they work and how much you like what they’ve done, and heap tons of praise on them and deconstruct their work. Did you see the Tom Cruise reincarnations?

  3. Did this a while ago for Mechapixel.com thread. It was done rather quick & dirty. There’s certainly room to improve…

  4. Well, the Joker has always been a bit of a fop. Just check out the wardrobe. So, in that aspect, I can see Ledger working just fine.
    Now, the real question is: Can he bring the crazy?
    The Joker’s a homicidal comedian, through and through, and treats Batman not so much as a nemesis, but as the straight-man for his ongoing act. For the most part, his menace comes through the fact that he’s genuinely happy perpetrating his atrocities.
    And the Joker isn’t meant to be a jokey character that tells jokes — he’s a guy that laughs maniacally as he sets children on fire and pisses on them.

  5. i love how everyone assumes nolan is going to paint ledger’s face white and have bright green hair…i think it will be much more normal and subtle. i think the outfit wont really play into it as much as the acting will.

  8. sweet billy,
    What would the Joker look like if he didn’t have a white face and green hair? They can’t deviate TOO much, or it wouldn’t be the same character.
