15 Brand New Joker Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
We have a close-up of our main man with this first Joker coloring sheet.
This portrayal of Joker is based on his appearance in the famous Batman Animated Series, and it is a popular incarnation of the character.
This version is known for being both hilarious and menacing, and now you can decide whether to make him look as he does in the series or give a new look for him.
This second page features another image of the Animated Series Joker, but this time we get a better look at his entire design.
The Joker almost always wears a bright purple suit, and that will make for a really striking picture if you go for that color scheme in this one! Will you add a background for this fleeing Joker?
Here is another awesome pose from the animated Joker. This is a picture that really captures his character brilliantly, and it shows how he can be both smiling and menacing!
Maybe you could use some colors and mediums to closely match the look of the show. That would look great, but you can also get more experimental with it if you prefer!
The villainous clown himself gets another close-up in this Joker coloring page. He is wearing a hat in this one, and it creates a really classic feeling for this particular portrayal.
Will you stick to his normal purple and green color scheme, or is it time for a Joker makeover?
This next portrayal of the Joker is very detailed and creepy! This one moves more into his look in the comics, and that calls for a different approach to colors.
We would use some bright colors done with some colored pens to give this a vibrant look that hearkens back to the comics, but this is just one approach of many.
Our sixth page we have for you would make for an awesome poster! The Joker is known for his cruel tricks, and this one shows him firing a gun that lets out a harmless flag.
There are some amazing details here, and the circle around him makes it look like he’s in the spotlight.
This character has been drawn in many different styles throughout the years, and this next page in our collection of free Joker coloring pages for kids we have another detailed, creepy version.
For this image, we would keep the colors a bit more muted and restrained in order to create a more realistic portrayal of this famous criminal.
We’re heading back to the Animated Series for another portrayal of the Joker. Even though this is based on his animated version, it is still highly detailed.
This gives you lots of options for how you can color him, and you can shake up the mediums you use for it as well.
If you have a favorite Joker moment, you could show it by drawing a background for him!
It’s time for one more close-up on the Animated Series Joker as we get a good look at his famous grin!
We will be focusing on different incarnations in the next few pages, so you can really go all out as you add your color choices to this portrayal of Joker.
Will you try out something completely different or stick to his classic colors?
This Joker coloring printable features our first look at one of the many live-action portrayals of the Joker in film.
This one focuses on the character as portrayed by Jared Leto, and there are some great details!
It’s a slightly stylized version of his portrayal, but it has all of the small details that you would expect, such as the tattoos on his face.
We get another good look at Joker in this next image. He is running towards someone here, and this image could be the scene as experienced by Batman!
There is a lot of empty space in the background, and this would be another prime example of an image that would look great with some background details added.
Next, there is another live-action Joker for you to color. This one shows the character as portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix in the film simply called Joker.
It presented a dark and very realistic origin story for the character, and for that reason we would keep the colors more muted and washed out to fit the feel of the film.
There is much debate as to who is the best on-screen Joker, but a favorite of many is the portrayal by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.
His performance is considered one of the greatest in film history, and this next Joker coloring page draws from it for inspiration.
There are plenty of details to color for this classic portrayal!
The Jared Leto Joker is back for one more go in this close-up portrayal.
This one is done in a much more realistic style than the previous appearance, so it’s another one that we would color in a more muted fashion.
It would also look cool with some more vibrant colors, and you could create some interesting effects that show the character’s insanity if you want to get creative!
We shall close off this collection of Joker coloring pages with one more look at the classic Heath Ledger Joker. He has a really distinctive look in the movie, and this page captures it brilliantly.
