Thursday, October 1, 2015


For this post I pretty much just thought I'd acknowledge that it's the first of October. It's the start of a new month, and the holidays! If you're an artist, this month, the month of Halloween, might inspire you to draw some scary monsters, jack-o-lanterns, or something like that. I might do that myself. Another great thing about October is the fall weather that usually comes along. So, everyone have a happy October!

Doctor Who, Series Nine

"Doctor Who"
I thought this would be a good opportunity to post one of my Doctor Who artworks again. I posted it before, here. Series nine of Doctor Who premieres tonight. It will be airing on one of the BBC channels in the UK, and on BBC America. It will be the second series, or season, to feature Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. It will also be Jenna Coleman's third series, second full one, and last series since it's been reported that she's leaving the show after series nine. I'll miss her. I'm looking forward to the premiere and I think it will be interesting to see what Capaldi's second series will be like.

Joker entering the Art Gallery - Batman (1989, T. Burton)

I decided to make this Joker Week on my art blog. However, I don't have a Joker artwork for today. I do have one that I had in mind, but it would take some work to get it out to post it. So, maybe another time. Until then, there, above, is a video of part of the museum scene in Batman (1989).

Heath Ledger As The Joker

"Heath Ledger as the Joker"
Here's another one of my drawings of Heath Ledger as the Joker, from some years ago. I started by drawing and inking the drawing on paper. I colored some parts with Sharpies. Then I digitally colored the rest of the Joker, and put on a textured background.

Joker Card

"Joker Card"
Here's a Joker drawing I did some years ago, based on Heath Ledger's Joker. I originally drew it on paper, and I thought it would be cool to make it look like a playing card in my paint shop program. The Dark Knight was a great movie. I'm looking forward to seeing what the new Batman film mythology will be like with Ben Affleck's Batman and Jared Leto's Joker. While I do have favorites, I wouldn't say that any one actor is a better Batman or Joker. They're all great in their own ways. So, I think that Heath Ledger will always have been a  brilliant Joker.

The Shadow

"The Shadow"
Here's a picture of The Shadow I drew back in 2007. I've been fascinated with this character since the movie with Alec Baldwin in the '90s. The Shadow is an old pulp fiction (not the movie but the genre) character. His catchphrase is, "who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...the Shadow knows." Dynamite Entertainment, a comic book publisher, has published The Shadow comics in recent years. The Shadow is an awesome character!

Batman Facebook Profile Picture

"Batman Facebook Profile Picture"
Facebook at least used to have default profile pictures for profile pages, and they were silhouettes on, I think blue backgrounds. That's what inspired me to draw this (above). I thought it would be funny and cool to do one with Batman.
