Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-02
The suggester states how she loves the very well done bold lines for the inks and the shading techiques that =MarcLaming used in Batman and The Joker commission, and I couldn't agree more! The soft and bold shadings present here give a very great effect to the overall scene plus the characters were beautifully drawn! Be sure to check the rest of the pieces from the gallery.

The inking and shading techniques turned out really well. The black and white colors adds a dynamic and dramatic effect to the artwork. I don't see anything that needs to be critiqued because this artwork was well made.

Plus, this is another good depiction between Batman and the Joker. Also, the fact that you added the laughing fish was a nice touch, too. It also reminds me of an episode from Batman: TAS (the animated series) where Batman tries to stop joker from turning all the fish into laughing fish.

Bat-tastic! And an angry/happy fish too!

This is very beautiful work, besides the obvious fact the lines and shadows are smooth, they have an almost organic quality to them. While the laughing fish is a brilliant little nod, the composition as well as the thick swathes of black ink truly set the tone of the scene. The light speckling of the background adds to the rain lines that make it feel more real. This makes it, while humorous and light because of the fish, sets the stage with a dark and heavy atmosphere, befitting the contrast between, not only Batman and the Joker, but the idea of a clown and a superhero and what is really going on in this image. Sorry for the large text post, but I really love this.

The laughing fish! <3 That alone just makes this piece so much more awesome on top of the stunning use of ink already. Great choice of subject by the person who bought the commission too; Batman is such a great character. Congratulations on a super deserved DD!

Well... we never had TV so I only watched the animated show at my Grandma's, so sorry I didn't know. ;p

The only episodes I remember involved poison Ivy and the Crocodile... I really only know batman from the movies. *shamed confession*

Wait... Laughing fish? Let me repeat myself: What. The. Heck. (lol, were the writers running out of ideas or something?)

Based on a comic book story a looong time ago where the Joker tries to patent fish. One of the greatest Joker stories ever written.

It's The Laughing Fish! In an episode of now legendary Batman: The Animated Series, Joker used a version of his venom on the fish in Gotham bay and demanded to be paid for the use of his trademark smile.

I like the expression on the Joker's face, the ever present smile makes it seem like he's torn between sulking or smirking/bursting out into maniacal laughter. And your brush strokes for the edging border are pretty dynamic but also neat, it's a nice combo :)
