How to draw Harley Quinn

How to draw Harley Quinn. Learn how to draw comics character Harley Quinn step by step and partially video tutorial. This one I also add the image of how I break down the body in my head before I construct the figure. Female or human figure are often very complex to draw especially when you have part of the body in perspective. Similar to the pose of Harley in this tutorial, she is sitting down on a platform and you will see her knees in foreshortening. This can be difficult to pull off for some. But with a lot of practice and learn to implement perspective, you should be able to ease off the pressure. Life drawing is a big deal when it comes to figure. I have done a lot of life drawing for almost a decade regularly. It helps you see human figure in real life and when you practice with real life you gain tons of knowledge about human’s figure far more than any book or reference. Anyway, enjoy the tutorial.
Harley Quinn was first introduced as a devious humorous female sidekick to the Joker. in 1992, in the animated series Batman. Then later adapted into DC Comics’ Batman comic books. Harleen Quinzel was a psychiatric intern at Arkham Asylum. A model student, in addition to receiving high grades in college, she was also a dedicated gymnast, winning a scholarship to Gotham City University. While researching the lunatics at Arkham, she became fascinated with the joker. After he gained her sympathy during their sessions, he seduced her, causing her to fall madly in love with him.

Continue drawing Harley Quinn in step five, I add her right arm with a pistol then I reshape her head so that it would fix her crown hat.  Step six, I add her mask over her eyes.  At this stage, I also need to clean up her upper body to get rid of her blouse and draw over with clean torso.  Step seven, since I clean up the sitting figure, I can now add her bodysuit and put medium gray on part of her torso, arms and leggings.  Step eight, now I add her original Harley Quinn outfit checker design.  I add basic light and shadow, hot spot, then I am done.
