I’m working on an ongoing project with Sean Downey, and here is some of the what we’re working on.
Sean posed for reference photos, which I digitally painted over (those are really his clothes, though. He’s a fashion plate).
Quick and dirty, but it gets the idea across.
Sean built a couch and we put a sculpted figure on it. We built a room and put in a test window, and took test snapshots with a digital camera.
Still more work to do, but I’m encouraged by the test shots.
Just don’t look below his knees.
The Clown Prince of Crime.
Does the Joker need any introduction? I’m going to guess he’s the most famous comic book villain of all time.
I’ll just tell you a little about my version here.
With a nod to Conrad Veidt from The Man Who Laughs, whose look inspired the Joker, I think of the Joker as a handsome man whose only deformity is his bleached skin and green hair. Otherwise, it’s his violence and unpredictability that make him a monster. I updated his traditional jacket-with-tales and bolo tie with an ensemble which, while still old-fashioned, is sharp and tailored. The Joker’s a dandy.
I also left one shoe untied. Ultimately, the joke’s on him.
