Hah! I remember that scene! I remember when I was in the theatre, I had this funny feeling of dejavu when I saw the Joker falling off the building just before Batman caught him from falling to his death. Because the first thing I remembered was the scene from the 1989 film where Batman kills the Joker by tying his leg to a stone statue which caused him to lose his grip on the ladder and we watched him fall to his death. But the Dark Knight had a twist of events. The Joker just gets caught. And then he utters his last best lines just before we get to the end with Two Face. The Dark Knight was a great movie. I loved it. Though it's ashame we won't be seeing Heath Ledger reprise his role as the Joker since he's dead now. *sigh*

Rest in peace, Ledger. You were the best. And we the fans miss you dearly.

Ha ha, I've seen it 8 times now...7 in the IMAX. Its only natural to memorize his parts even if you don't mean to...after watchin it so many times. Good stuff...I know 8 times is a little overkill but what can you do...its addictive.

Wow! Magnificent portrait of Joker! Hmm... but, is there a special reason why that green lighting on the left side of his face isn't continued over his jacket?

But great shading anyway :D

Thanks!

Its a very subtle light and thats why I figured that his white face would pick it up and the dark purple would take more intensity to start showing the hue. And it made the face more interesting, perhaps its a spotlight?! :)

Hmm. Okay, that's convincing :D But I think it would have been helpful if you added at least a few greenish highlights to the cloth, so the viewer would get it more easily.

Anyways, it's a stunning piece. :love:

Absolutely awesome. You are the first person I've seen to depict this scene. The city in the lower left corner looks great!

The dialogue really shines in that scene in particularly. I think the greatest part of the movie beside Ledger's brilliant performance is the script. The Joker is a difficult character to write for without sounding cliche. I look forward to seeing more of your brilliant artwork. Maybe i could talk you into doing something 1968 Planet of the Apes related :)
