I know I have a bit of a reputation as a foot artist or whatever, but typically I don’t just go all-in with foot fetish content. Usually the feet I draw are just there as part of the pic, except occasionally for commissions and the like when someone else has me draw a pic focused on them. I went a different route with this one, though, although I couldn’t tell you exactly why. I just had the image in my head and thought some people might like it. So here we are, with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn sharing a taste of Ivy’s little green foot. Enjoy!
So this is a pic I started waaay back in 2017, following a conversation with a friend. We talked about how much they liked Harley and Ivy as a couple, which is a sentiment I agree with (I much prefer this pairing to any other possible pairing for either of them). I started this pic ’cause I was riding high on the idea of a Harley/Ivy pic at the time, plus I thought it’d make my friend happy, but there were some parts I didn’t like and wanted to redraw. Other stuff took priority, and this pic just sat in my work folder for the longest time (it was even in the “hype banner” on my site for a year or so, when it was just lineart. When the new Harley Quinn show started airing, I loved it, and wanted to draw those versions of the characters together. However, I felt bad about this pic, which I’d always wanted to get back to. So, finally, I buckled down and finished it. Now that this picture’s finally done, expect some 2020 Harley and Ivy content from me eventually (we’ll see when I can find the time).
This Character Ask was a unique one for me. Excluding projects where I was not the artist, I’ve only ever really drawn Harley Quinn in commissions. The version of Harley used in those commissions is her more recent comic design, where she’s bleached like the Joker and has the pink and blue pigtails. However, I’m not really a fan of that design. My favorite version of Batman is still the Bruce Timm one, and so I tend to favor designs (for both Harley and Poison Ivy) that are closer to that approach. I almost used the Bruce Timm art style for this Ask, but decided instead to lean closer to the comic aesthetic but using the designs I prefer. If I draw these two outside of a commission (and I have a few unfinished works that will hopefully go up some day), then it’ll be these versions.
As for Harley’s answer, well, it seemed like the obvious choice to me. Poison Ivy is my favorite person to pair Harley with (followed by Dick Grayson, tbh). Despite the way the question was phrased, I do not view Harley and Joker as a sexual pairing (Harley may want that, but I can’t help but read Joker as asexual and disinterested). When my friend Anya suggested the “plant” pun that just sealed the deal for how she’d reply.
One of the first SFM compilations I ever wanted to do was this one, and I finally got around to it. The title of this one is “classic” Harley Quinn because the clips used to make this music video feature her exclusively in her original costume. This is my favorite look for Harley, but maybe some day I’ll try making another one using her more modern design.
This is a commission purchased off my Epic Level tier (with a little extra to compensate for the characters and variants). The premise here is that three of DC’s top villainesses (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Enchantress) are sort of “mentoring” three of Gotham Academy’s leads (Maps, Olive, and Pomeline) and celebrating New Year’s with them in an unconventional manner. Due to the nature of this commission, I wasn’t able to even start it until after the holiday itself had passed in the real world. Still, it’s not entirely untimely, and honestly I don’t suspect that’ll much get in the way of anyone enjoying these pics.
