Barrels full of Lol over here. Can totally see the Hulk lifting up the Joker and the Joker just popping off a "G'day, chappy!" before slithering out of the big one's grip.

The Hulk taking on the Joker? Hmmm... This would be an interesting match. Despite my love of the Joker, my logical mind knows that if the big man were to get his hands on him, he'd crush Joker into pulp without hesitation. On the other hand, Joker is the king of cheating death, so the moment Hulk starts to smash him, he'd probably gas him, stab him somewhere sensitive, or something else. Who knows? Maybe Joker would use some sort of trick like he did in the Arkham Asylum game so it would be more even? Only as a last resort, no doubt, as we know Joker would love to put a smile on Hulk's face (insert Joker venom).

Onto the artwork. This is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like something straight out of the comics, with both characters perfectly proportioned, and Hulk's muscles captured most exquisitely. You even got his ripped pants down pat! The words in the background add to the effect that the Joker is simply having the time of his life with this. As for the Joker himself, nice job. Each wrinkle and line of his suit is drawn so well. Good job on the expression too, especially the smile (he's got to be smiling, of course!). Ooh, and the hat? Nice throwback to Mark Hamill's Joker. All the gag weapons everywhere, right down to the laughing fish? I love it all.

On a final note, I think it looks better in black and white than in color. It adds an element of grit to the pic. Good job. Keep it up! Welcome to the list.

Realy I think the Joker would win because he is a genius and he has a lot of weapons at his disposel, like his laughing gas and his shocker, really they should make them fight if they make a DC vs. Marvel comic or movie, which I would pay a lot of money to see.

:iconruler101:
Ruler101 Featured By Owner May 24, 2014
Nome of his weapons can actually effect the Hulk. Hulk instantly metabolizes most poisons (You'd need enough tranqs to put down all the elephants in the world to slow Hulk down) and electricity has never done serious damage to him unless in astronomical qaulities.

The Joker is a lot cooler than the Hulk, admittedly, but in a fight he doesn't stand a chance.

In a Marvel Vs DC movie, Id rather Joker fight someone a little more on his level, probably another villain. Or maybe the Punisher.

I really don't know who he can fight most of the human villians in marvel wouldn't take him serious until he starts destroying a city or killing a lot of people or some of the heroes. I thank he is crazy enough to take on anyone of the marvel characters, but he is a genius and he is unpredictable, so if he went in to the Marvel universe, more DC villians and heroes would enter behind him. Let's just hope that one day we can get a Marvel vs. DC comic or movie, and I'm hoping that DC does win, but I'm also rooting for Marvel.

Him being crazy doesn't really help in a fight. I couldn't really see the Joker fighting Thor. Giggle gas won't help him while Thor is striking him with lightning or punching him with the strength to destroy a planet.

I think the DC heroes would win in a straight up battle, but if people like Odin or the Beyonder got involved Marvel has the advantage.

Would it be far fetch for me to say that you get your influences from artists such as Ed McGuinness? Especially in the inking quality. In any case great stuff.

:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009
No, not far fetched at all. Ed's been a big influence on me. In terms of inking, Tim Townsend is my biggest influence, but you may be seeing a bit of Dexter Vines in there too.

Yeah I can definitely tell especially with Hulk. Although I think you actually better than Ed because Ed tends to draw all his figures these days like they're giant plastic action figures. I really liked his earlier stuff cause it felt way more organic and natural. Now... they all look like a bunch of muscle bound rock-em' sock 'em action figures.

The thing is, with just a few well placed words quickly spoken, I am sure Joker will have Hulk pounding Hulk's own face in, and thinking it was Hulk's idea.
That, or send him looking for a certain flying rodent man to smash..

Hulk looks confused and a bit shrewd staring up at the Joker, as if noticing something about him he's never noticed until he has him by the scruff of his shirt... could it be the Clown Prince of Crime is talking the Hulk out of the fight? Or could it be it's because Hulk's confused by Joker's apparent "water" spray from his flower chest? Looks like brains over brawns for this match-up ^^

I am amazed at this. This is one of your best works. This is a FAVORITE!!!

What I like about your style is how you draw the face contour and the hair styles of the characters like the one you did with Emma and Scott.

Your inks are always amazing. I do think the Joker would win cause he is such a bastard. He's probably got Betty tied up some where waiting to be killed. That is why the Joker would win, he would make the Hulk a villain or fight other heroes or something like that.

On one hand, this would be the shortest fight since Bambi Meets Godzilla.

On the other hand, you could build a hellacious story around this piece.
