Joker - Beneath My Grin by Mystic-Forces
Joker - Beneath My Grin
"Beneath my grin, though, is just more grin!  HA HA!"

To tell you the truth, I don't read much comic books, I was always more of a fan of the cartoon series based on those iconic comic book characters, especially my absolute favorite, "Batman: The Animated Series."  However, there is one on-going series that I do read from time-to-time, and that's "Batman", written by Scott Snyder and illustrated by Greg Capullo.  I think these two have done a phenomenal job when this was rebooted (again) with introducing new villains, such as The Court of Owls, and revamping classic ones.  The prime example of their amazing creativity is when they reintroduced the Joker after purposefully getting his face removed for motives unclear by Batman and his allies.  Even with the slight make-over, he is the same Joker we know and love as he sought to bring chaos, misfortune, and laughs (in his own twisted sense of way of course) into Batman's life.  There is still a lot of mystery behind the Joker in his featured story arcs, "Death of the Family" and "Endgame", but that's just one of the many things on why the Joker is such a fascinating villain.  With Scott Snyder giving Joker the increasing complexity in his character and Greg Capullo providing the gruesomely beautifully artwork in his design, it's no wonder that the Joker continues to maintain his position as one of the most popular villains in history.

Needless to say, I felt inspired to draw this version of the Joker, especially that opening seen where the grinning, shadowy trickster stands in a pitch-black background, and from its completion, I learned several things about my own art style.  Overall, I always tend to have clean lines in my artwork.  I don't think I can ever measure up to the naturally gruesome details found in other people's art style, say Greg Capullo when he drew the hideous flesh off of Joker's flesh-carved mask.  Still, this did give me a chance to explore some of the coloring and brushes I used in my Manga Studio program like that splattering effects around his face or the streaks in his hair thanks to the watercolor brush tool.  Plus, it was a nice break from something else I was working on.

Blastoise Surf by Mystic-Forces
Blastoise Surf
This is my submission for the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Tribute by GA-HQ!  :icongame-art-hq:

When I used to play Pokemon, Blastoise was the Pokemon I would always carry with me into battle from start to finish.  So when I discovered the HM, Surf, I made sure that Blastoise would be the first one to learn that move.  Aside from being able to transverse over lakes and oceans, Surf is a very powerful Water-type move that can almost crush Rock, Fire, or Ground Pokemon in an instant.

If you can think of one movie, video game or TV series that definitely deserves a reboot, what would it be?

Korrasami: Sparring Partners by Mystic-Forces
Korrasami: Sparring Partners
In Book 3, I am really glad Korra and Asami spent a lot more time together compared to the previous Books, even before their relationship was established in Book 4.  And one of my favorite moments of the duo was when Korra was venting out her frustration over the Earth Queen while sparring with Asami.  And it got me to thinking that Asami is just as tough as the rest of the team.  More specifically in her hand-to-hand combat and nimbleness.  So I thought it would be pretty fitting if these two would become regular sparring partners.

Hello!
What do you think about the Rogues Gallery concept?

:iconmystic-forces:
Mystic-Forces Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2015
No, but it would be nice to receive more clarity on what you were referring to so I can answer your question better.
 
I'm sorry for responding so bluntly before, but I'm still lost on what you meant by "Rogues Gallery concept."  Is someone doing concept art that I should be aware of?  Does it have to do with The Flash's Rogues such as from their continuing hit TV series?  Or are you referring the Batman's Rogues Gallery?

I mean 'when you think of Rogues Gallery as a concept'.

Huh?  What exactly are you referring to?  Is this something to do with Flash or something?  Because I don't recall bring up anything recently regarding with the Rogues Gallery.

I was just wondering that is all.
Is asking a random question nicely a crime?

To :iconmystic-forces: .  The above user is a spammer.  He's been saying this to every single person who has had a birthday for more than a year.  He doesn't even realize how disrespectful it is to say this to so many people for such a long time.  He must have had SOME money by now, and since he hasn't donated to anyone, you can safely say he wouldn't even if he did have the money.
