My friends are all huge nerds. Thankfully, that means we have plenty of shared interests. Like art, and Batman. (Duh.) Over the last few years, I’ve painted several portraits of Gotham-dwellers for friends and clients, of various villains as well as of Batman. This time, it was THREE consecutive paintings of Harley Quinn, requested by two different friends.
This Harley pin-up is based on the character’s Batman: The Animated Series version. It’s acrylic paint on a 24×24″ canvas, and was shipped to Bruce, whom I’ve known nearly 15 years. (What?! That’s crazy.) I love the bold colors.
After finishing the full-color HQ pin-up painting, I began working on two coordinating smaller pieces for my feisty lady-friend, Gillian. She already has an amazing art piece, purchased from another local artist, of the Joker. He’ll soon have these (shown here in progress) hanging on either side:
These paintings are each 8×10″, acrylic on canvas. I chose the cool grey instead of white to complement the pale neon glow-in-the-dark paint color on the Joker painting with which the Harleys will hang. Can’t wait to see them all together!
Happy Fan Art Friday, everyone!
