Photobooth Fridays, No. 2
Well it's Friday, and that means it's time for the second installment of 'Photobooth Fridays'. On the chopping block today? A couple pages from the Harley Quinn one-shot I did last summer, featuring The Joker. (It's a clown prince of crime kinda week)
The two pages I'm highlighting here bookend the issue, as The Joker introduces and closes the story. Looking at layout, I wanted to make the two pages fairly similar, though each distinct in its own way. That counts toward the posing of the character in each panel as well. There was a lot of acting I wanted to communicate through facial expression and hand gestures, and so to try and capture those subtle nuances, I turned to photo reference.
I make a pretty good Joker, right? Right?!
Here also is a look at my pencils and inks for the pages these two panels were excerpted from:
You can see more Harley excerpts here and here.
Have a good weekend, internets!
