yes deliberate pot shot at The Real Joker :D

so what have i learned? well... lipstick is not cherry flavored...do not nom....
anyhow... the red makeup i was using didn't look good so i resorted to lipstick... gonna see about getting red cream makeup.
the eyes could use some work, and the mouth; but over all the general look is achieved

this was also a test run of the scars in regular makeup and the face paint. the left has to thick of edges so i have cast a newer set that will hopefully be thinner. a thick edge leads to it peeling off when i move my face; that's why there is a slight lack of expression

so what do you think... be honest...


progressively getting closer....


...and CLOSER...


last one... enjoy :)... i'm gonna go wash my face now....

I like it!! The eyes are fantastic! Deep, dark, all the way in - really makes the white's pop out!
The scars are a great touch, and really set that "smile".
Very well done!

(...and Jacks Attic, I think The Dogman is actually a lady...)

Taking a potshot at me will you?!
Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you were a guy, like me :D

All kidding aside, I think you need less scarring. It's too much.
But what do I know?

See to them, you're just a freak....like me.
They need you now, but when they don't...
they'll cast you out...like a leper.


They're morals...their codes.
It's all just a bad joke.

I think the eyes look great.

Can't be bothered to check but i'm guessing it's not 100% like Heath's which is why you're not happy with it, but from what i mentally remember, pretty spot on.

Look fwd to seeing it with costume

less scarring TRJ? i do believe his scars are quite prominent... and on that note... where's YOUR scars o_O? perhaps i can help you with those... just hold still....:D

anyhoo... no it's not 100% like heath's cause everyone's face is different but i try to get close, i wasn't using a pic to reference and next round i will:)

again thanks for all the encouraging comments and as soon as the pieces are finished i'll start posting costume pics ^_^

The "Real" Joker.... please. Shouldn't you know you're own facial features if you're "real". :D

Dog, I suppose you'd like some expert advice, so I'll give you a closeup below. You're scars really are pretty close, but just a tad long. The red is much too heavy though. The black around the eyes is pretty good though. Just lighten up on the red and you'll look pretty close to me. ;)

restating

red 'smile' is a bit big so i'll tone that down next time...
^^^i have acknowledged the red is far too much...^^^

yeah the scars are a bit long but i'm not remolding them so :p
maybe some other time... but it's too late now

and Mister J... that picture... not very flattering... you look... a tad bit, uh, intoxicated... you might not want to let them take your pic at parties anymore :D

LOL. Yeah, no pics when you're "tipsy".

And why so serious? I was just kidding.
As for my scars, I'm gonna use rigid collodian.
I just hope I'm not allergic.

If not, I'll do 'em the old fasioned way...(runs off to find an old, rusty razor)

Just joking. Geez, people, lighten up :D

again with the serious question....

you think i wasn't just poking fun at you?
i know a joke when i see one....:)
i've been learning to embody The Joker's characteristics after all :D


oh hey, i figure you guys would have a better opinion...
at my local halloween store they have the usual assortment of gags and such....
they also have hats....
lots of hats....
so i figured maybe i would get a neat purple fedora (at least that what i think it was) and a hand buzzer for my costume as sort of a toss back to the old school Clown Prince of Crime.
my mom and bro weren't fond of the idea....

so i want to know what you guys think

they also have a plastic, noise making 'm-16' that caught my attention....
