Harley Quinn by SquirrelShaver Harley Quinn by SquirrelShaver
If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen me posting here and there about a Harley Quinn image that I've been TRYING to get out the door and here it finally is.

I was a bit torn with this piece at first and I must have done six to eight different layouts trying to get what I wanted out of it. I'm definitely a fan of the Batman animated series Harley, but I REALLY like the look of the Arkham City video game Harley. The catch with Arkham City Harley is that, with all due respect, she has little personality and zero expression in comparison to the bat-shit-crazy animated series Harley--a character trait that I think really defines the character. I just couldn't get myself to draw the stone faced Harley depicted in the game so I thought I'd try my best to mash the two very different versions of the character together and see what comes out.

Things looked pretty good to me when I was done with the pencils, but I have to admit that I did not foresee how expressive and energetic Ula's colors would make this. Once again I have to tip my hat to her for her making my pencils pale in comparison to the fully rendered color version.

Can't make it to Phoenix Con? No worries. Residual prints will be made available online at [link]

Good god she is hot
I am a bigger fan of Harley's classic costume.  It's nice to see something that is modern, but that draws more from the original.  I was not a fan of her naughty nurse thing from Arkum Asylem
Awesome work Clap

love harley quinn and this drawing is just freaking amazing :) love it :)
Damn, this is nice. I don't really know that much about Harley, but this comes pretty close to my impression of her - the personality especially. :) (And yeah, I agree - the Arkham City Harley's look IS cool.)
The lipstick marks on the bomb are a nice touch, too. :D
