Robert Schilling's Joker
Robert Schilling's been wowing Superhero of the Month readers since he won the Angel contest last December. Since then, he's submitted some pieces that are always fantastic. Here, Robert wows us with his dark, twisted version of Batman's greatest enemy, the Joker.
"For my Joker redesign, I wanted to give him a very dark and grungy feel, while still adhering to his comical demeanor. That blend of comedy and grotesqueness often makes for a absolutely terrifying character. You can tell he has a sense of humor, but you wouldn't want to be his cell mate in Arkham Asylum."
This is a brilliant companion piece to Robert's Harley Quinn, which placed in the finalists of that contest. In fact, I'd love to see those two redesigns in a piece together!
Enough of my wishful thinking. What do you think of Robert's redesign? Does looking at it terrify you just the right amount? Let us know in the comments below!
