Why so Serious? - A pencil portrait of actor Heath Ledger - The joker

Why so Serious?

Jack Nicholson was great in this role of the Joker, but Heath Ledger was brilliant. He was offered the Batman role but he didn't want to be a part of a superhero movie, however, he changed his mind when he saw what Christopher Nolan did with Batman. Heath spent two months locked up preparing for the role and I have to say, those two months were well spent. In his words, the Joker has no empathy which is what makes him so effective. I enjoyed drawing this portrait a lot.
