The Joker on Deviant Art

I have been playing around with Autodesk’s Sketchbook on my tablet for a while now. Three weeks ago, I decided to take up one of their ‘Sketch This’ Challenges. I selected the ‘Bad Guys’ challenge.

The first character that popped into my mind is the green haired nemesis of Batman… The Joker

The Joker as I imagined him. Somehow I think he does not look so ‘Evil’

It took me sometime in getting used to in drawing using my fingers or the generic stylus that bought from a store. I used to paint on Photoshop using a Wacom Art pad. Painting on a tablet is almost the same, but the ‘feel’ is quite different.

Also Sketchbook allows only three layers, so I had to work on these and merge two of them when I need to create a new layer.

Nevertheless, here’s my version of The Joker.

Also you can find my Deviant art submission here – The Joker

  1. Nice to read about Autodesk Sketchbook here. I had been using this app for a year and had been comfortable with it. I use it to fill my idle time creating simple cute characters and sometimes for illustrating my ideas that I present with a potential client.

  2. Joker is an interesting villan – I echo what previous posters have said. In the old TV show (I miss Adam West) he is sinister but with a huge flaw. From there Joker became more evil, until the truly unsettling version done by Heath Ledger. I prefer the mix of what Ledger created and the Joker of the Lego Batman movie!

  3. The Joker from both the Batman television series and the cartoons of that same era that were called “Batman/Superman Hour” was a nasty Joker but not the updated version where he is cruel and mean.

    • Hehe. Frankly speaking it’s the first time I have heard that name. I had to Google to see what he looked like.

      Indeed I made this Joker with a little look like the late actor/musician. 😉
