Clown. (Ace Comics)

I found this guy in Wikia. There are so many characters there that I was there for hours looking at them all. This one resonated with me the most though, maybe because crazies are often quite diverting. But also because being that he is called Clown there are a million and one ways you could go redesigning his costume and personality

Anyway Wikia had this to say about Clown...

A malevolent crazy who seems to work for himself at times and other times for Adolf Hitler. He was a skilled swordsman and an inventor of various brain-washing devices. Clown's background was never revealed, but his debut story hinted that he was not an American. He was decked out in face-paint and wore a clown outfit. This villain fought Magno the Magnetic Man and Davey on multiple occasions.

Deadline - 15th January - Midnight in California, USA. 16th January - 3am New York, USA. 8am London, UK 1.30pm New Delhi, INDIA 4pm Perth, AUSTRALIA and Bejing, CHINA. (So there's no confusion - and the voting thread'll go up an hour later and be up until the 21st/ 22nd at the same times when the winner gets crowned and takes over.)

@fiesty_badger6: Again I have to ask, can you extend the deadline a bit? 9 days isn't much time for some artists as most attend school and have jobs. Thanks. Cool choice, should be fun.

@fiesty_badger6: Would the 15th of January be acceptable? Unless that is too long. It IS up to you. Thanks for the consideration.

No probs, @decept_o. Probably be better for a lot of other slower artists as well, like me.

I tried really hard to avoid a joker similarity, so I tried to follow some kind of ww2 history seeing as the original was tied to Hitler.

I spent a while looking through wikipedia and attempted to write a small profile, but my writings not the best and could only summarize on what I thought up so it made sense.

@mrsketchtastic. That is genius. It's brought jealous tears to my eyes, for real.

Here's my clown. Tried fixing the unicycle with perspective - had no idea what I was doing. Need to get a book on it.

these entries are all excellent by the way. No two are even slightly alike.

The swordsman aspect jumped out at me and I thought about what a deranged descendent of Cyrano de Bergerac might look like. This is what I came up with:

That's a pretty ingenious depiction of Clown's mid control, There, @artiom1q2w.

Also with only about 42 hours till comp deadline. (See dates and times in First post in thread.) I thought maybe I should bring it to your attentions @decept_o, and @ardenbelfry if you have designs to put in, and @payno if you're almost finished your crazy shark tooth clown design. Or anyone else who might be almost there.

Never run comp b4 so I'm not sure if this is how it should be done, but I think I've seen it done this so I'm copying what I saw them do. Like a true pro..

Thank you for the invite Fiesty_Badger6 but unfortunately, I am unable to add anything the last few weeks, life has me busy again. The clown is a cool concept to play with and looks like a lot of people came up with some great and fun ideas
