"WHY SO SERIOUS??? LET'S PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE!!"
:D:D

I loved the expression in this photo, and have not seen anyone draw this one before, but it was not high res, and I have to imagine some of the details. Most photos of him are slightly out of focus screen shots from the movie vs him posing for his photo in make-up? I also didnít waste my time trying to reproduce the dots on his shirt collar either. The reference photo looks clear enough, but the larger you make it, the more pixelated it gets. I couldn't really go wrong though with the makeup. Unlike the details of a normal person, messy make-up is messy make-up, so it didnít really matter that I didnít try to copy this 100%?
