Heath's Joker by GabrielGrob Heath's Joker by GabrielGrob
Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight Movie)

Scrawling with colour pencils, A4 paper

i used a screencap from this movie screenmusings.org/movie/blu-ra…
- drawn without any grids, or tracing methods (i was just looking on the picture & drawing what i saw, so maybe the likeness isn't perfect, but i prefer to draw/paint this way, i don't like copying pics from internet, or reference photos).

I would maybe sell the original artwork, if somebody is interested, also prints

Some of my other works are for sale too, feel free to ask for details

holy hell....the level of detail in this is boggling. Knowing how tricky a medium colored pencils can be, I can only imagine how much time and patience went into this. PHENOMINAL work.

Could you possible take a peek at my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Oh well.
Thanks so very much! :iconsmilieplz:  :boogie: :)

Okay, i think you are on good way.. Your drawing of the eyes is very nice and with knowing how old are you i think this drawing is very good :aww: Draw and sketch often, no matter how long in one day, and you will improve. I wish you good luck! :aww:

Sorry for my english..

I love Heath Ledger's work as Joker and you've got his iconic features spot on and I personally love the medium of colored pencils. I've seen this image, it's a rather popular scene from the movie and you've done quite well! I think there are just a few areas for minor improvement and this would be a shoo in.
The eyes I think are a tad too large and exaggerated. You've got a really consistent stroke with your pencils but I think a good thing to remember when using colored pencils is to pay close attention to the contours of the plane that we are drawing. The forehead seems to have been shaded vertically when I think a horizontal curved and heavier stroke would help express the depth of dimension. Don't be afraid to press more color onto the paper (like you did on the suit jacket).
This is a solid piece with just a few tiny avenues of improvement. Great great work. :nod:

Thank you very much for your critique! :)
I knew there are some mistakes, now i see them better :) f. e. the big eyes, when i was drawing i didn't notice it.. I didn't draw any outline or sketch with pencil for this drawing, i started straight with colour pencils..
I draw always so, that i just watch on the reference photo..
