So here’s another pic from the fairly recent Harley Quinn cartoon, featuring Poison Ivy and Catwoman. When we first meet Catwoman, it’s clear Ivy has a strange sort of crush on her, and that they have a lot of history. While I don’t think it’s canon that they’ve hooked up, it definitely seems like something that could have happened, and so here we are. I have more planned with this show, I have plenty of ideas for it, but I’m trying to space out the content a little bit so I don’t burn myself out with it.
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).
So this pic started out from a strange place, I suppose. I was looking at an old Officer Jenny pic I did ages ago, where she’s blowing some Team Rocket grunts through prison bars, and thought it’d be fun to do something else through bars like that. I figured a footjob would be well-received, but I didn’t want to use Jenny again ’cause I didn’t want it to feel like a sequel to that pic. Thinking of prisons, Poison Ivy came to mind. Since I’ve been really enjoying/wanting to draw the new Harley Quinn show, I decided to use that version of Ivy. Originally she was gonna be paired with some random security guard, but while I was inking the sketch it occurred to me that the “seed” pun I’d already worked in would make more sense with The Riddler, who actually did get her a seed that she later used to escape Arkham. Now, the Arkham we see in the show doesn’t really seem to have bars like this, especially between cells, but a little artistic license here doesn’t hurt anyone.
This is the second of the “Gotham Academy New Year’s” follow up pics, this time with Poison Ivy and Olive Silverlock. The client wanted them using a double-ended dildo in the “scissors” position, with as much of their bodies visible as possible. I kinda like how Ivy’s arching here, she seems to be really getting into it. ^_^
Also, below you’ll find the second episode of my retrospective look at the superhero drawings I made when I was younger and my plans for them.
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.
