TDK2 - Oswald C. Cobblepot by mrbrownie TDK2 - Oswald C. Cobblepot by mrbrownie
Phillip Seymour Hoffman as "Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot"
A.k.a. "The Penguin".

Penguin memorabilia includes the monocle, the cigarette in holder, white gloves, the umbrella, top hat, and tuxedo (includes ribbon bowtie). What of these would be relevant for a face portrait? Hmm. Well the tuxedo would be scratched, as the umbrella (too big). So now we have white gloves, bowtie, hat, cigarette and monocle. More than four elements is distracting. So three is my choice, two elements play support to the main element. So I chose the main element (the one that is held in hand) as the cigarette in it's holder, the immediate support element as the white glove (being the hand) and the monocle as the face support element. The bowtie would've be too distracting, as it would have created a third area of interest. Well, that's my take on the Penguin. Might revise it later :D.

Well, let's hope he gets around the idea and accepts in a future batfilm.

Ah, I see you DID do one of The Penguin. Very cool. i think if the did him as a villain in a Batman movie though, they'd have to choose someone with a pointier nose and a rounder face though.

Thanks, although I would prefer that The Penguin solely comes alive through the characterization not so much visually forcing the look. Maybe make some subtle visual fx to give the impression of a more bird-looking fella.

Yeah, but without the visual characterization, the character doesn't have the same impact. If Heath Ledger had just acted the part without the permanent smile and the face paint, he would've just been a psychopath in a Batman movie, rather than a Batman villain. The Penguin is called The Penguin because he has certain penguin-ish qualities about him. But I'm sure if they did ever do The Penguin as a Batman villain, they would use some visual effects like you said.

But is it really fair comparing Joker's physical look vs Penguin's. I see Penguin's look as a package, which includes:

- Pointy Nose.
- Short stature.
- Tuxedo with coat tails.
- White gloves.
- Monocle.
- Cigarette with long holder.
- Umbrella.
- Overweight/Obese (It should be Obese, but most people have extreme mental images when you say the word.)
- Top Hat.

I'm just saying take the pointy nose away, he is still an overweight tuxedo-wearing short man, that still looks like penguin.

The nose is the cherry on top of the figurative sundae

I don't know, whomever would play the Penguin would have to be a bit... rounder and have a more naturally devious look. Despite his outfit, was no gentleman at all.
I do like the monocle design.

Too bad Nolan thought the character was too unrealistic.

Yeah, originally the Penguin was supposed to be in TDK. Either as a third villain or was replacing two face. However, after some talk with Seymour hoffman, Nolan said he thought the character and Catwoman were too unrealistic for his Batman vision.

Unrealistic as a character or as in the origins of the character?

I'm not sure about him being The Penguin. But then, I'm mostly unsure because I've never seen this actor in a movie before. I should get on that...

But I wouldn't complain, so long as Nolan DID put The Penguin in the film. x-x. I wish he would, but it sounds like he's not interested.

Anyway, I really like your take on this. :D I totally love how you made the bat symbol down at the bottom like a question mark. Sweetness! XD
