Evil Joker’s Grin. Sinister CG


Do you remember the feeling of enthusiasm that overfilled you when you visited the circus for the first time in your childhood? You were inspired with the coming incredible spectacular full of motion and gorgeousness. The faery atmosphere that filled the hall during the performance was really unsurpassed. All the star turns took of the feet and everybody was sitting amazed. Of course, one of the most popular figures of these spectaculars was the clown, harlequin or joker as it was called. The funny tricks that they performed called a great tornado of applause. Funny, comic, they played jokes with the public. Now, when you are a child any more, you understand that the smile of the joker is only the mask and no one knows about his real nature. They can easily pretend being full of humour, but it can’t be quite true. Some of them hide their real essence deep inside and it is the sinister one. It is so easy to move closer to people with the smile on your face, even the false one.

 

This collection is a king of a bright spectacular that will disclose the world of jokers of all denominations. Some of them are familiar to you from the childhood, other stir your blood when you are looking at them.

It is a secret where the creator has drawn his inspiration, but the image has turned out to be excellent. Just look at this emotional rendering of the joker. The smile is a dazzling one. A little bit scary, but you can’t help admiring it. This smile reminds the one of Cheshire cat, but more intensive and charismatic.

Green hair, the white face with the painted scary smile on it, purple velvet suit – everything speaks for the well-known clown form the movie about Batman. The author pictures here Joker of his own. As you see there is a Batman doll in his hands with a lot of needs in it. In such a way, the clown takes off his vexation.

This queen is a good match for Joker. She loves that schizophrenic and mad clown, because they are tarred with the same brush. She is the female reflection of that dark and cold-blooded clown. They are both malicious and don’t know a thing about empathy.

The face of this joker is shining. His smile is the radiant one and it runs the gamut of the emotions. These emotions don’t deal with something positive anyway, only evil and mad is in his mind. Interesting idea and well-done rendering of the character.

This illustration of the joker captures brilliantly his wild, psychotic personality. This image is interpenetrated with the creepy atmosphere that makes it impressive and memorable. This tone is possibly achieved due to the dramatic lightning and the dark color scheme.
