Description

The Joker by Ron Salas


Like most Batman fans, I really like the Joker. But I like him funny, crazy and a bit classy in his purple suits. I don't like him with a cut-up face and/or just being evil with no jokes. If you want a crazy killer who's all dark and mutilated, then use Zsasz. Anyway, my favorite artistic depictions of the Joker come from Timm, Nowlan, Aparo, Adams, Garcia-Lopez, Bolland and Breyfogle. And now I can add Salas to that list. Ron captured the Clown Prince of Crime perfectly here. His face conveys his insanity and his evil nature, and his relaxed pose while holding a deadly weapon shows how murder is just not a big deal to him. I also just love how Ron drew Joker's suit (check out the folds) and the lettering around Joker's head. As always, thanks to Ron for delivering awesome commissions!


If you like this piece then please do go buy some books featuring Ron's work in either physical or digital format and/or go commission him yourself.

Killer piece, I saw this on IG and was in awe by the way he portrayed Joker. Impressive work by Mr. Salas.

I prefer my Joker with "face on" too Josh! Ron really did a nice job with this piece. Much harder to produce the folds on that suit that drawing spandex! Congrats!

Thanks for the comments and the views. I think what I try to do whenever I draw Joker is to 1) make sure he looks crazy, of course and 2) make sure that his smile doesn't look like a happy smile. I always try to go back to the origin -- The Man Who Laughs and the Red Hood legend. His smile comes from pain and tragedy and I try to reflect that.
