I love the unique, layered texture that watercolor or gouche gives off. And I love seeing iconic comic characters portrayed with it, so this is fantastic. I like the classic Joker here, and somehow it evokes the animated series for me. But that's probably just because he hasn't been portrayed this way outside of comics since then. Unless you count the Arkham games.
Thanks! For me, Batman: The Animated Series holds the definitive interpretations of the Batman universe. I was indeed trying to make my Joker a bit of a call back to the Bruce Timm designed one - glad it comes through!
I agree. I know for me personally that Batman: The Animated Series solidified in my mind the demeanor and voices of Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, Joker, and Batman himself. I always hear Kevin Conroy's voice when I read Batman comics. And though I'm open to new interpretations of Batman in other animated series, it's still always jarring for me to hear someone else's voice come out of his mouth. Takes an adjustment period to settle in. The same applies to Mark Hamill's Joker.
