Harley Quinn, to the Rescue?

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.

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

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.

  1. Haven’t seen the movie yet either. Heard she and Deadshot were the highlights.

    1. I’ll see it eventually… Sometimes I find I like the movies that are poorly reviewed. Batman vs Superman wasn’t as bad as advertised, for instance. It was flawed to be sure… but the flaws were more in how the movie was cut together than the characters or the plot, in my opinion. I expect something similar is going to be the case with Suicide Squad.


  2. I agree that you did a good job on the jacket!

    1. Thank you. There was actually a little girl at the comic show this weekend dressed as Harley… and her brother (I think they were brother and sister anyway) was the Joker.
