For the darkest parts of this painting, did you use black or a mix of other darker colors? Did you use ivory black? I'm trying to find a warm black. I so don't dig the subtle bluish tinge you get with ivory black and titanium white.

Hi!
I always mix my own blacks. The darkest black is a warm mixture of green and red.
He is for sale. :)

Thanks for letting me know about the black. I just started oil painting this semester, and it's a new but exciting experience.

What price are you wanting for your painting?

I loved that first preview photo, but I'm glad they eventually went with something a bit more subtle. ;)

*obligatory RIP Heath Ledger, thanks for being the most awesome Joker EVER*

Wow! It's a shame he's dead cuz unless they want to piss a lot of people off they won't be able to feature the Joker in films for years if at all, so unbeatable was Heath's performance.

RIP Heath Ledger. :( This is great. The dark tone really fits, even if your intention was not to connect the Joker to the actor himself.

I actually wanted to connect Ledger to the painting 'cause his performance as the Joker is so marvelous and credible.
