Amazing!! I haven't seen the Joker reproduced better. You portray his likeness awesomely. All I have to ask your Joker is: Why so serious?? Smiley

Spot on, mate! Brilliant.
How did you draw the pattern on the shirt??
I am thoroughly impressed.
Kings to you, you just made my night.

thanks again everyone!

In response to how I made the shirt: I printed out a repeating hexagon pattern (about 3x3 inches for each hexagon) and put the paper on a light box with my shirt over it (the light makes it more see thru so I could trace the pattern) I just used a darker blue marker and traced the image onto the shirt Cheesy

BUY RIGID COLLODION! it works miracles... It is this chemicly based stage makeup that you paint on your face and it looks just like scars...

See??? It's only $5 for a one oz. bottle (which is about enough to do like over 20 applications of the scars)

It just peels off (kinda hurts like getting waxed but hey...)

Then I bought some green hair dye and sprayed randomly lol
one big thing that most people miss is the wrinkle lines in his forehead... once you apply the white makeup take a damp Q-tip and rub off the white where your forehead wrinkles are to make the paint look more weathered... (you can also do this from the corners of the nose to the mouth as well) I also took a paintbrush and wetted down some red oil based clown makeup for the lips... just paint it on instead of with your fingers...

I did splash some water on my face, but i think i needed more... but it does give that "I've been destroying stuff all day and am now really sweaty" look Cheesy
