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 :(

I really love how he's half Scarecrow, half himself - and looking at his hair, I can't help but think it looks like the silhoutte of the bat :)

Thank you. I shall have nightmares tonight.

This is waht happens if you detail your stuff to much- it looks realistic, and people (like me!) get a shock. :XD:

He is insane... but at the same time not. How is that even possible? Is it a psychiatrist thing? I mean, he is in the same classification as Dr. Lecter... only a lot less eaty. XD

He almost looks like a pine tree the way his hands are and the spikey things coming of his back.
PINE TREES ARE SCARYYYYYYY NOW.

I loved him in Batman Begins! I wish they had given him more attention, buuut the scenes he did have were pretty nifty. I mean, "would you like to see my mask? To a guy like you this isn't very scary, but these crazies can't get enough of it." XD

Hah, yeah, Cillian Murphey in general has this freaky way about him. He was in a BBC movie me and my family watched last year and we kept expecting him to turn and kill somebody at every scene he was in, but he ended up being on of the nicest characters!

You should read the comics, I have all the ones he has ever been in at home should you be over again. I think you would like the Detective comics 835, Absolute terror plot line.

Hmm, didn't we have a conversation about this a while ago? I' sure I said something like 'pretty, pretty pictures' and you said 'read the darn storyline girl!' XD

Something like that :P

You can like the concept, or the way a character looks but unless you read the stuff they are in how are you going to know the personality of the character and what truly makes them who they are?
