Hi! Sure, Gary. Here, I'll post some progress shots of the painting. Last night I started working on the "basecoat" of the face. I call it a basecoat because most of it will be covered by his make up, but some areas of flesh will show through. Here, the eyes have been blocked in and the face basecoated and 4 consecutive highlight stages done.

Here are a few pics of the completed sculpt of the Joker bust. I apologize for the pics being a bit off, but the black primer is still a touch wet in places. I'm pretty happy with the sculpt and I think the likeness is pretty good, though it's a bit hard to see right now. Once I get some paint on him, I'll post some more. I like the loose style of this piece. I think it fits the mood and I plan to paint him in a simlar style. The running make up will be fun to do. I've got some ideas on that. I think I'll paint the face in normal flesh colors with acrylics, then use oils over the top of that for the make up. We'll see how it goes.
