The Man Who Laughs
The Man Who Laughs by phoenixfirestorm

For a while now, I have been wanting to redo the Joker piece I originally made in 2008 when I was first learning photoshop.  I still want to find the original files on that one and redo it based on the original image, but that might be fruitless.  I was actually going to try and redo it for the new piece and ended up doing a completely NEW piece which I am ecstatic over.  Is there room for improvement?  Sure.  But I am actually satisfied with the outcome and would still welcome critiques and pointers.

The Original Joker piece from 2008.  I've come a long way
The Joker by phoenixfirestorm

I rarely have time to focus on doing this kind of thing, or I'm too distracted to do so, but I finally found time to do it for at least this piece.  So, if you are curious about how some of my images take shape take a look through this album I constructed on my facebook art page to see the Joker come to life from my original photo up to the point of madness fully taking hold.  :)

And here is my newest Joker piece I had a little fun with.  A bit different from what I would normally focus on but I love it
