The Joker

Finally. Ladies and gentlemen... the Joker.

This picture was a LOT of work, from beginning to end. I started out with a very quick sketch of an exaggerated facial shape, but when I got to refining... I went overboard.

But you know what? I'm really pleased with his creepy self. Although it's always a bit of a let-down when you release something onto the net, and it slinks away silently. I've been feeling a good deal of self-pity about my skills lately. Neil calls in Angst Thursday because it seems like it happens every week. I call it Onks Thursday because I like to say "onks!"

Aaanyway. On to the next project, whatever that might be.

Thanks for the kind words!

It's usually a good idea to wait until you have a sizeable comic archive on your site before you start promoting it, though. You only get one chance to make a first impression, and the more comics you have up the more chances you have to hook that first-time reader.

I used to have an online comic, so I know a few tricks. :)
