another flashback recreation of one of my favorite all time Batman book " the killing Joke" illustrated by Brian Bolland, written by alan moore. the original can be seen here- [link]
( it's the middle panel of the last page of the book).
this is about as fan art as it gets for me, i love this book, and this panel ended the book for me so well. Originally, i didn't want any color in this piece, like the original panel was b&w. but since it's a stand alone, i thought it was okay, and also, thinking back to the joke the joker tells at the end, i decided to go with some whimsical carnival tones. desaturated to give it a place in time. yeah, i left out the rain and the police car lights and the EEEeEeeeEEeE
anyway, this is me after Brian Bolland, one of the greatest story tellers in batman history, if you dont have it, find it. If it was before your time, go back in time and read it.
