    You've over blurred it a bit is my first thought.

    My first thought is that it's too washed out. I'd like to see more contrast in the picture.

    Also, that Joker face looks way too flat. The way his chin line is, makes it look like a mask.

    Other than those, I think it looks cool. :chug:

    Here is just a couple crits/suggestions:
    Study anatomy, figure out the human form...there are a couple of glaring oddities in this piece(i.e. - joker's eyes, nose, mouth chin....entire face really. try doing some self portraits or studies of some other peoples faces, youll see whats wrong -- also Batman's shoulders look wrong)
    The composition and general idea behind the peice is nice (it could use at least a bit more sharpness in batman though, as he seems to be the focal point), you just need to spend a bit more time and effort on the individual elements.

    tnx, i'l try to make a better anatomy composition next time...
    all other effects were in my initial idea, so they r ok for me, even if yours r good suggestions

    oh, i like! I think the washed out things mentioned before work well with the subjects, being batman and joker. Whenever I think of batman, I think of a dark, foggy environment which only reveal a so little of the person that you can still recognize who they are by their key features.

    That being the case, I think batman definently fits that, the streaks of light are a nice touch as well. keep working on it.

    I like the feel you've gotten in the piece. However, I think you should get rid of the lineart. I don't know what software you're using, but if you're keeping it on a seperate layer, kill it before you finalize the picture. I think the facial structure on the Joker is a bit wierd to. Everything below his nose seems most off to me. Also, I think I would've brought the shadow on his cheek/chin a bit more in.
    That being said, it has the makings of a cool piece!
    Looking forward to the update.

    No. You don't want to "give more volume" to the Joker. You want to entirely re-draw his face over. Like someone mentioned before, study anatomy and so some portraits. Compositionaly this piece has a good idea going for it, but I think batman's stance is a bit too leaned over.

    the joker's face ruins it... BUT I admire the fact that you went ahead and gave it a try
    not bad, keep the practice constant

    I liek it, but I think the words are redundant. I have a hard time with art that has it's explicit meaning written in it.
