I’ve been meaning to do a really good Harley Quinn drawing for a while. I’m admittedly partial to the more classic Bruce Timm look, from the Batman animated series… but I finally found a few good stills from the new Suicide Squad movie that I liked, depicting actress Margot Robbie in a good pose.
I like the looking down the “barrel” of the baseball bat pose here, and the movie costume has a lot of nice details to capture. I admittedly burned out a bit and didn’t put all the tattoos she appears to have in the movie, nor did I put all the signatures on the bat, as most of that would be illegible at the size of my drawing anyway.
Being completely honest, I’m actually happiest with how the jacket looks. Her jacket and shorts kind of have a Two-Face design working for them (half one style, half another) which I enjoyed drawing. I wonder what the Joker has to say about that choice in design? 😉 I also think I’m continuing to get better at getting the shading to look as I see in my mind when I’m drawing people.
I haven’t seen the movie yet… maybe by the time it hits satellite I’ll get to catch it. In the meantime, please let me know what you think of this one. Remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
