Added some sumi ink into the watercolour mix so it was real dark. Highlights were achieved with acrylic white or rubbing back into the paper when wet.

Getting darker and adding more detail.
This is based on Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight (for those that didn't work that out already). Great movie.

Posted this a while back but these are better photos. The web strands were created by cutting back into the paint/paper after it was semi dry, kinda like inkers do with razor blades when they want a more jagged white line (explosions, mist, water effects). Joe Kubert perfected this technique (I reckon) yonks ago. Reading his biography at the moment, written by Bill Schelly, great stuff.
