DC Fan Art Club: Weekly Challenge #73 - Jokerized! January 8 - 15, 2022

I went with Ted Kord Blue Beetle. I think this is going to get very creepy.

Omg! Those teeth are perfect! Yes, creepy zone alert!

I tried to think of the least likely character to be thought of as creepy and then add the Joker frights.
Plastic Man provided the opportunity to also go for body horror by having the grin twist around his face. I also paid homage to the Laughing Fish by turning his hand into the fish (you can see his fingernails in the teeth).
Hope you like it.

Whoa, creepy! Believe it or not, my first thought was also to do Plastic Man as well, but I did not have an idea like a wrap around grin! That’s really freaking me out! Well done!

Captain Cold is awesome! Have you checked out our Captain Cold and the Rogues thread?

Thanks Rob! I went back and forth between a big grin with exaggerated teeth or something more realistic. I ended up basing it on this John Byrne pic from the Superman issue that is part of the title bar this week (#9 from the 80s reboot).

Looks a bit like when a person is in a mouth retractor at the dentist’s office!

Nice reference pulling the comics history out. I am not gonna finish this captain cold for last weeks challenge, but may morph it into a jokerized one. Decided to hyper-extend my fore finger on the old drawing hand. Nothing bad, but hard to hold a pencil or pen. Using a mouse and keyboard tomorrow at work may prove difficult too. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Ouch! Take care of that drawing hand!

Thanks and I will. My collection of graphics novels has gotten to large for the small bookshelf I have and I ordered a new one yesterday. To prep for it I was moving stuff around in my office/Rob Cave and took a spill after cracking my foot on the leg of my desk yesterday. Tried grabbing for support and mostly missed and bent my index and fore fingers backwards. Woke up this morning and can barely move them at the knuckles. Luckily my wife is in the medical field and saved me from an ER visit and possible exposure to Covid-19. Glad me phone has dictate of else I couldn’t even text or type. :rofl:

These are both so magnificently terrifying in so many ways. I need to remember to stay away from this thread around bedtime.

Ouch! That sounds so painful. Is it just a sprain and needs to heal? Hope it gets better soon. Good to have someone who knows how to help at home. Get better soon, my friend.
Ps my oldest has started me on MHA and it’s not bad so far. I’m not an anime fan so the animation takes a little getting used to but the story and characters are interesting. I’ll continue watching as I see the passion my child has in this rivals when I talk about my superhero movies and shows.

It adds to the creepy factor too with the teeth seeming separate from the mouth almost skull like. Retainer is a great description!

Sorry for the nightmares but thanks for the compliment!

I also get a wild eyed feeling from it and feel like they should be darting around frantically. The teeth though….scary take on the Joker grin as it looks disconnected from his face. I get the feeling there will be a lot of scary pictures this week.

These are awesome, :see_no_evil: creeptasticly awesome!

We’re gonna have to do this again around Halloween time.

I’m still trying to figure out who I want to draw for this :thinking: might take the angsty route and do Jason, but I feel like I’m always doing the robins :sweat_smile:

Take care @RobArt471 that sounds really painful! :pleading_face: try to keep it still as much as possible while it heals. Sometimes I get wristpain after drawing too much and take it as a chance to do some non-dominant hand exercises. It can actually be really fun :grin:

Maybe do a twist and do Carrie Kelly Jokerized?

I can’t imagine it being anywhere close but I’d used to get bad pain after doing my style of drawing with tiny icons. Lot of work

Thanks! It is a great idea! Believe it or not sometimes when inking to keep from smearing i ink left handed. I don’t have the fine motor control, but I can do the simple stuff. I might give it some work over the next couple days practicing.
