Just in time for Halloween.
If you've seen my gallery you can notice that this year I mainly focused on DC and Dune character design and here's another entry in that club - Mr J and Harley. Again this is a rendition not necessarily based on DCEU's current interpretations of these characters but more like what I'd like to see on the big screen. This said, I do feel Margot Robbie (especially) and Jared Leto are perfect visual representation of Joker and Harley Quinn therefore I chose to base my characters on their physical appearance to some degree. I absolutely hated Suicide Squad and I felt Leto's Joker was cringy af, but I still hope that with the right direction these characters can truly shine. Robbie's HQ is already iconic to some people and she was the highlight of SS for sure, but unfortunately I need more. I liked the ganger approach to these characters but I'd love some cooky clownish turn in their next movie.
About the piece: I purposely made Joker the dominant figure, because let's be real, he's always been the leader in this dynamic. I absolutely i hated Amanda Waller saying Harley is as crazy as Joker in SS, sorry but not. Also I decided to portray Joker with Harley's signature mallet in order to convey his full control/influence over her life and decisions. To extend i guess my subconscious idea was to portray Harley Quinn as follower and not equal to Joker's madness, and jet slightly hint that's definitely someone not to mess with. #bathuntingdays
Currently I'm working on some neat Geralt of Rivia and Rhaegar Targaryen character design so stay tuned. After these two are done I'm gonna go back to Gotham and probably do a Batman or Gotham City Sirens artwork (already got the reference packed for this) to go with this series character design series. And to be fair these will be the last for some time, I don't feel particularly inspired with DC these days (it took me 5 months to finish this one lol). Anywayz hope you enjoy it, i don't even know why I write these long-a** descriptions, no one reads them
