Edward Nygma by kuri-osity Edward Nygma by kuri-osity
My take at a cartoon-style Edward Nygma, aka, "The Riddler".

He looks a bit young ... maybe this is during his pre-supervillain, university days?

Any thoughts on who I should sketch next in this style?

Edward Nygma, aka the Riddler is a deeply interesting character, he knows he is extremely intelligent but like all really clever people they need to prove it. That's the frailty of genius, it always needs an audience and I think it's safe to say the Riddler has had most of us watching him prove his intelligence for a good part of half a century. Whilst I do like some of his more standard costumes I do like how's he's presented here. The misleading signs of a typical intellectual with standard messy hair but that old smile, that old arrogant smile which tells us 'I'm smarter than you, and here's why'. Brilliant rendition of a brilliant character.
What do you think?
