The Joker and Harley Quinn by felluponthieves The Joker and Harley Quinn by felluponthieves
This is the painting from my Master Copy project at Seton Hill University. The assignment was to find a painting by an artist (I chose Alex Ross) and duplicate it. Here's the finished project. I free-hand drew the image on the canvas in pencil and then went to town painting.

This is an oil painting and the original dimensions are 2 & 1/2' X 4'.

I had posted another version of this painting but it didn't quite look right so I decided to edit it and repost.

At first sight, I was wondering what this original was doing here on dA, and then I read the artist description. The point that caught my eye was:

I free-hand drew the image on the canvas in pencil and then went to town painting.

This is an oil painting and the original dimensions are 2 & 1/2' X 4'.


And that started making me wonder... and soon enough, I was in awe; this is a comic series cover which I envy. The person whom has made this creation, has certainly delivered in the process.

Well done, sir! Keep at it! Bravo!

On closer inspection I see what you mean about the file size and shadow colour and I therefore formally withdraw my previous complaint.

I checked out the original and your replication is VERY impressive, although I can't quite put my finger on it but yours seems more "crisp." The one major difference I did notice was that your jokers lips pulls away from his teeth more in the bottom corners, giving him more of that snarl look I was talking about instead of leaning more to the sinister grin of the original.

And as for thanking me for the fav and critique, you deserve the fav so no thanks are needed, and for the critique, I enjoy giving praise where praise is due, and a great deal of praise is clearly due here.

The one BIG difference between the two is that the original is a water color painting while mine is an oil painting. I think that's what gives mine a little bit more of a "crisp" look. With that said, it still blows my mind that Alex Ross painted that with such precision in water color.

And I always thank people for taking the time to let me know what they think of my work. If there's a way to improve upon myself from someone else's perspective, I take it and give my thanks. So again, thanks!

I just have to say. Does anyone else see Nixon in the Joker's face? Not that it would be a bad thing, but...I can't get it out of my head. I see Nixon! "I am not a crook." indeed.

Truthfully, it drew me to it. I dunno why. So much Nixon. Its almost like satire without the intention to be satire. Its great. Apparently sometimes we all truly do see what we want to in art. I really like the piece though, to be clear. I am not as much a visual artist as a written one, so I can't give a strong critique but I just thought the Nixon-y-ness needed to be shared. :D
