The Face of your Fears by Leopreston The Face of your Fears by Leopreston
"There is no Crane... only Scarecrow!"

I felt so annoyed with myself over my last upload (Batman Splurge). Believe it or not, I really don't like it when I allow my style to slip and become too cartoon-ish, which can happen if I'm focusing too much on expressions. Actually it's funny, because I dislike working that way myself and yet I like it when others do it. ;)

Anyway, in retaliation against myself, I reverted back to something darker and more detailed, which I feel most comfortable with.

Dr. Jonathan Crane, AKA 'Scarecrow' didn't feature in my Batman mugshot lineup and I considered that to be a crime, as next to The Joker he's my second fave. I mean, there's something pretty mean and ingenious about a guy who uses your own fears and phobias against you... he freaks me out.

Oh, the insane ones have all the fun! :P

Very nice! A villain, I feel, who never gets enough recognition. He seems to be a fan favourite, but is rarely in the comics themselves :(

And there are so many villains that don't in that same fashion. It's a crime I tell ya! :O
