Mr. Joker's Gotham City Circus by shoomlah Mr. Joker's Gotham City Circus by shoomlah
New print for Steamcon V this weekend! I've had this thing on the back burner for something like a year now (and I've had the Harley design for even longer) so it feels fantastic to see it to finish. Hand-drawn typography always seems like such a good idea when you're starting a piece! And then... Kerning. Kerning for hours.

this whole thing is great but to me, the best part is the subtitles at the bottom :)

Kudos on your hand drawn typography! I've always been so scared to take that leap...and the kerning would scare me. lol You've done a great job and those costumes are killer! :)

You are the winner of all things. If I wasn't already head over heels over the Lutece's you have won my heart with this piece. I hope you wouldn't be offended if I attempted to cosplay this piece (you of course would be credited!). This is fantastic, I adore your art.

Wow! This is really awesome. The costuming and design is really great. I like how you included the other villains as features in the show, nice detail.
This makes me really want to do a cosplay of Harley Quinn like this.

I can't believe I didn't realize until now that just about every Batman villain could be classified as a circus freak.

That's really cool, ir's a great idea and is realized wonderfully. I could see joker putting that around Akrham when he captured Batman it's exactly as he would do.

This has to be the most beautiful thing I have seen all night, and the premise alone would make a great mini-series in the actual comics.

super gasp! I just learned what typography and kerning were today in my Graphic Design class!  Moving on though, I like this composition.  I really like how Joker and Harley are super detailed and the fire behinthem isn't.  It makes you aware that there's fire there, but it doesn't overwhelm the Joker and Harley as the focal point.

 

Overall, great job. Bonus cool point for hand-drawing your typography.
