Rick Baker Recreates Greg Capullo’s Joker

 

Known for his work on classic films like “An American Werewolf in London” and “Men in Black,” special effects legend Rick Baker set his sights on a pet project of his own: recreating the Joker from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman story, “Death of the Family.”

Rick Baker, via Twitter shared a few photos of his Capullo-influenced design as it progressed, from its grayscale concept to its full color rendering. Though there have been several iterations of the character, Capullo’s particular version of the Joker removed the skin for his own face and wore it like a mask, and Baker reflects that in his creepy design.
