Harley Quinn -Lucky You

This was a commission I did at Denver Comic Con 2017, pencils, inks & colours (with copic marker) by me.

The Suicide Squad version of Harley is really fun for me to work on. I love the way her shirt has that hand-dyed look to it, so I can colour outside the lines a bit & give it a more organic look. It adds to the overall sketchy feel. I usually draw Harley with a more sinister grin or a smirk of some kind, but with this one I wanted go give her more of a China Doll look. I coloured in the center of her lips & faded outwards lightly. My fav part of this Harley though is her make-up! OMG! it's soooo fun to colour! It took me a while to figure out the right copic combination to give it a smear that looked right to me, but I think I finally found it with this one & I use 3-4 shades of pink, depending on how close-up she is on the commission. If her eye area is just too small for me to add that much, I dial it back to fit the space allotted.  

Harley has extremely pale skin. with copic, I've always stuck to the Cool Gray tones, which are blue-ish in hue, but lately I've found when I ad a very light purple (Copic # BV00) to her skin tone & throughout the image, it warms her up just a touch, which I feel makes her look a bit more human, while still in keeping with her look.  

She's part of my Sketch Commission Series, which I have available on my website from Jan 1-31, 2018, then she's gone. You can snag her here:…
