Portrait of Heath Ledger as The Joker

I watched Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight recently and was again captivated by Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker. His total committment to the role was evident in every scene – and not that he stole the scene, but merely inhabited them as a reality he shared with the other actors as a gift to the viewer.

This role and the one as Skip in The Lords of Dogtown are my favorite characters Heath shared with us before his untimely death. I have painted a portrait of Heath as The Joker previously, but felt the need to revisit this character and this talented artist’s portrayal.

Alternative movie poster for "The Dark Knight" featuring Heath Ledger as the Joker

I also used the illustration as the basis for an alternative movie poster for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight film for my profile at the PosterSpy community. 

The illustration was created in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Corel Painter.
