    I had my buddy paint his face like the Joker tonight. I've been wanting to try my hand at this for some time. So, here it is. Tell me what you think.

    Pretty nice, I like all aspects of it except for the catchlights, and the overexposure of the nose. All in all, a good shot.

    tharmsen....awesome work (as usual!) I just wanted to thank you for that image as I am getting ready for bed...home alone with just my two basset hounds (yeah, they are good personal protection dogs...lol)! Anyway, all of that to say that it's enough to scare the bejesus out of me I know that...thanks for the nightmares! :lol:

    I think it looks pretty awesome. Really dark and brooding. I love the fact that you can see the little bit of white in the one eye. Very cool.

    I don't like the fact that it's a floating head with an absolutely black background. I think something besides total black, even if it was still very dark might have worked better. I like the lighting, but the hotspots are a bit much, and I like the angle but I feel like the crop is too tight. You definitely captured the creepiness of the Joker though... "Do you know how I got these scars...?" *shudder*

    I like it, but the only thing is there seems to be little detail in the eyes. It's almost like they're not there. Unless that was intentional.

    I like the lack of eye detail. Makes it even more creepy.
    Yeah, its a good one.

    Why so SERIOUS ! :D

    And why are you posting this stuff in the beginner's forum? At least get the focus on the forehead, blow the shot out, or use selective coloring to better fit in. Nice shot though, and nice work on the makeup.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    We need a "Pro quality but not full time job" forum, ha.
