Barack & Harley Quinn

I did these sketches last week, so I apologize for not putting these up sooner. I decided to do a caricature on someone famous, so here's ol' Barack Obama.

If you want to get a sense of what I like to draw, here it is: Goofy caricatures of otherwise very serious subjects and dark sketchy drawings.

Below is Harley Quinn, made to be more along the lines of the Dark Knight look. I tried some harlequin suits, but nothing really seemed to work in reality.

As the Joker has self-inflicted scars, I think Harley would be crazy and enough of a Joker obsession to maim her own face for him. I imagine she's an unhinged fangirl, so her "costume" is pretty Spartan. Nothing too out of the ordinary aside from self-made tattoos and homemade T-shirts (this one has "Joker" in a heart with red paint splattered on it). I thought about cutting her right eye open a bit to damage her tear ducts, enough to make it so that she would always appear sad, despite what she was feeling at the moment.

This pose hopefully conveys absolute disbelief. Batman just took her down, and while expecting the Joker to come in and save her, she watches her "lover" flee from the crime scene.
More to come soon (probably fanart) as I've been in the mood to draw, but nothing so far that's decent enough to post here. :P

It's now just me and Mardig in the house. It gets very hot in here since we have to use the A/C sparingly. But it is nice to have an empty house to do brainstorming (I do it out loud).
