HCR MINI-Challenge #37: Femme Fatale! -Drew Barrymore/Harley Quinn

Ok gonna give it a go here. Never done a celebrity face/bust before so it may end up like crap. Here is a quick concept I put together. Not happy with it but it's a start. Trying to get a 'classier' Quinn rather than a trashy one.

Hrm, never really thought of harley quinn as trashy.... I guess looking around a lot of the post arkham asylum redesigns have been kinda trashy.

Found this on google. HArley drawings some non slutty harley quin designs that are more cohesive.

I have two points i'd suggest:

1. get your proportions right. your design is not gonna look right untill you throw those elements in your concept over a frame that's the right size. right low those long skinny legs are poking out from a rather bulky costume at some weird angles.

2. Unify your design. There are like 5 or more elements in your concept, i see leather and vinyl and possibly wool or felt, that looks trashy to me. Take your current concept and put it on a layer at 10-25% and then make a new layer above it and draw what it is you really want. then repeat that process several times and then choose the best from those and do it again.
When I first appear I may seem mysterious, but when explained I'm nothing serious.

I LOVE the Harley Quinn character. Really looking forward to what you do with her. She would look terrific in a mini skirt,.. hint hint

me too, I'm on board with this one. Quinn is my favourite anti-hero in the Batman universe
looking forward to seeing where you go with this. Will try to dig out some of my fav bits of artwork for her too
