Wizard World Chicago: Two-Face


The first comic I remember reading had Two-Face as the main villain... and he remains my all-time favorite villain to this day.

In this shot I like to imagine that our pal Harvey here has broken into the Bat-cave to steal back that giant penny that Batman confiscated all those years ago.

This may be one of the best Two-face sketches I've ever seen....(flips coin)...yep BEST!

I'm in complete agreement with Brian on this one. Not only is his visage appropriately sinister, but you've successfully conveyed all of his iconic duality without relying on the over-the-top garish cartoonism that can be a pitfall for some artists. Just wonderful, Chris.

Awesome. Two-Face isn't a favourite f mine, I confess. Movie-wise, I hated Tommy-Lee, loved Mr Eckhart. This rendition is your usual intelligently composed, beautifully blacked wonderment

Wow, Chris. Very powerful & moody depiction of the character. Very nice.

Chris I just wanted to say thanks again as I love this sketch and it will hang on my wall for years to come! It was great meeting you in Chicago! Thanks again.

Holy jeez. I don't know if this was the intention, but the background makes me think of the maw of that T-Rex that's sometimes in the batcave. This is just a stellar production right here.

Brian: HAHA! I tried to come up with some sort of clever coin flip mention for the post but failed miserably. Glad somebody got a good one up here :)

Matt: Thanks a bunch. After Harvey's injury I imagine that he just stopped taking care of that side of his body. Unkempt hair, wrinkled clothes and such. Two separate suits sewn together always felt like a bit of a leap, ya know?

Alan: Thanks, Alan! Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan of TLJ's performance either. Bit over the top. Eckhart was brilliant though. Thanks again.

Dan: Thanks, sir. Loved your sketch alphabet, by the way. Great stuff!!!!

Geoff: Thanks for such a great request, sir. And thanks for the Molsons:) Glad to know ya!!

Jim: T-Rex mouth? I don't see it but to each his own;P Thanks, man.

Hey, Chris! I'm a Two-Face fan-blogger who's scouring through your archives for your images of Harvey and the other rogues so I could do a whole tribute post (if that's cool with you), and I would love to include this Harvey image, but it doesn't enlarge when it click it. Do you happen to have a larger version of this amazing portrait, or is tiny one as big as it comes? Thanks for your help, and please keep up the great work!

Hi John,
Sorry for the delay in answering your comment. I'm afraid I can't find a larger image for you. Sorry and thank you for the post highlighting my work!
