Even though this lesson may seem awesome, I don't know how many of you will actually see the phrase within the art. Today I will show you "how to draw The Joker tattoo", step by step. I'm not gonna tell you what the phrase says, instead I will tell you where to find it. Look at the green hair, forehead, and below his eyes. You will find the question that is one of the best lines from The Joker played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. I love how the drawing came out, and I know that there are a lot of fans out there that love Heath Ledger's character from the film. I hope you enjoy drawing this Joker tattoo. It is one of my favorite illusion art lessons yet. Adios folks and stay tuned in for more tuts on the way.

STEP 3.

In order to continue the illusion on the forehead we have to start drawing the hair. Do this in a wispy flame like manner. The bottom or base of the hair is what will form the lettering or word on the forehead. When you draw in the hair, be sure to draw the W and H. This will also help form the word 'SO'on his forehead.

STEP 8.

Finish off this Joker tattoo by drawing the cruddy teeth, add detailing to his teeth and color in some areas to add shading. The gum line is what needs to be colored in as well as the separation line between the top and bottom rows of teeth. Erase the mistakes so you can see what a cleaned drawing looks like.
