Wow. Where to begin on this one? Although I had be dragging my feet for months on this project, the Dave McKean Arkham Asylum Joker came together rather quickly once I actually sat down to work on it.

Anyway, I had originally picked up the McFarlane Sam & Twitch 2-pack set to use as Joker. Unfortunately, Twitch proved to be too small, although I did manage to incorporate the lower half of his pants along with his hair. The torso comes from a McFarlane Movie Maniacs Shaft figure while the majority of the legs are from NECA’s Eric Draven (the Crow) figure. I reworked the head from a Tom Requiem figure (Clive Barker’s Infernal Parade) with a lot of Magic Sculpt to better match Dave McKean’s artwork. Finally, the jacket and arms come from an Art of Spawn Issue 119 figure. Both the arms and jacket needed to be shortened by half an inch, but fortunately this didn’t prove to be too difficult. And, for once, I didn’t slice myself in the process!

Though it has been awhile since I’ve done such a nightmarish figure, I must admit I had a fantastic time working on him. Painting this figure was so much fun that I’m tempted to make a Dave McKean Two-Face at some point in the future.
