HQ: Queen of Hearts by rotten-apples HQ: Queen of Hearts by rotten-apples
Patient #4479: [holds up the Queen of Hearts card] Obviously you're not Harleen Quinzel...
[The Joker Blogs, episode 8: BRB]


I'm baaaaack <3 Tinkering with Harley's look, just because it's fun and allows me to be dark and messy. Used Angela Bettis [especially from May and Girl, Interrupted] as a reference for the face and hair [May's pigtails at the laundromat]. I like how in both films Bettis pulls off homocidal awkwardness with that tinge of innocent cuteness, mixed with moments of bitter sarcasm suddenly split by gale force rage. I like the skinny geeky look paired with Ledger!Joker's masculine grunge.

The obvious symbolism is that Harley's destroyed the person she used to be-- jokerizing the queen.

Harleen Quinzel being the Queen of Hearts is inspired by the eighth episode of The Joker Blogs, BRB. And speaking of TJB, the last of the GCPD evidence tapes is hitting the internet this Sunday the 28th of March at 12pm CST, so go watch it when it's up!

medium: black India ink wash and red watercolor
characters: Harley Quinn [belonging to DC Comics]
extra: the Queen card design belongs to Bicycle Playing Cards
