Joker Was Here

I recently saw The Dark Knight on Blu Ray, and immediately after decided I had to paint the Joker. I wanted to do something a bit more original, however, so I tried to depict the Joker more as a vampire than anything else (hence the black attire as opposed to the classic purple).

This was painted in a period of 3 days, and I did my best to avoid overworking this piece, so I stopped much earlier than I usually do.

Edit: Updated the piece a bit, mostly added some details and reworked the colors quite a bit to bring more life to the image.

Wow..I LOVE this take on the Joker. I don't really see him as vampirish (or well I think I'm trying not to..that would make him a bat-man too? Well he is quite batty..ok I'll stop my parenthesis rambling)
Lovely lighting and I love the subtle shading on the coat.
