Absolutely fantastic! Joker is my favorite as well! Love the smiling mouths. You managed to incorporate the Joker's most iconic trait in the perfect way. I simply adore the human-like teeth!

This is freaking amazing!
I swear you're actually one of my favourite artists. Every time I see you have new stuff I'm always super-excited because I know you frequently draw dragons and dragons are just unbelievably cool!
I love how you gave a very iconically jester/clown-like villain a draconic form and had it work. It's just brilliant.
I'm surprised YOU'RE surprised so many people love it. I mean seriously: what's not to love?

It is awesome, it reminds me in some way to Spawn and the Violator, more like the Medieval Spawn fighting the demon. You are very skilled. I love that painting. Congratulations!!

This is great! I really enjoy seeing peoples thinking process and how the idea changed from the first step to the final image. I love your dragons but this worm like creature is also fantastic, I'm glad you chose to end up with this version of him, his face is great, completely captures that creepy monstrous joker. Thank you so much for sharing!

Heh, I think it's cool that you deviated - it shows that you could think out of the box :D Even though dragons are one of your boxes ... but that doesn't count. I always really enjoy your step-by-steps, mostly because it inspires me how many details you use, but this concept-developing part of the process is even more fascinating. Thanks for sharing! Hehe, I know the feeling where you ask yourself what on earth you're doing, but usually, it turns out to be good anyway - and it's kind of nice to do something so deviant that you have to stop and wonder who put that idea in your head ;P

I love how you did several different sketches until you found the right one; that's the way to go! The finished Joker looks terrifying, in a very good way. :XD:

This creeped me out so much. He is so much more intimidating this way to me. I love the description of the blood evaporating into the laughing gas. I actually thought it might have been him getting ready to use the laughing gas as a breath wepon. And things I didn't notice the first look through were the little arms. OMG creepier. And I think this works for either final or stand honestly. Dragons are TOUGH to beat. ^_^ All in all I love the effect of it .
