Harley Quinn and Killer Croc by yvash Harley Quinn and Killer Croc by yvash
"Can we keep'um Mistah J? He wuzn't easy to catch! I hadda persuade'um a li'l... Ain't he just aDORable, huh?"

Ok, it's time this picture was put to bed. I've let it consume me a little too long; if I stare at it much longer I'm just going to start picking it apart and it'll languish for months along with the rest of my unpublished pile.

The aim was to contrast the two characters as heavily as possible; take two of the most physically opposed of the Batman Rogue's Gallery and put them together for comparison. In the end I think Harley looks a little too fresh faced next to the craggy mountain that is Croc, but maybe that was the point.

Also, that wife-beater slogan has been in my head since I started the pencils for this sketch a year back.

The original linework can be seen here:


Harley Quinn created by Paul Dini & Bruce Timm
Killer Croc created by Gerry Conway & Gene Colan
Both are DC Comics

One of the best Killer Crocs I've seen. He is the awesomest Batman villain after all

If contrast was your mission, this picture is a triumph! I love this juxtaposition, and it'd be just like Harley to think big ol' Croc was cute and stick her hat on him.

Really like your design of both of them. The detail is immaculate, right down to the condensation dripping down the walls. The shirt slogan is fantastic.

Of the surprisingly massive trove of Croc art I can find on DA, this one's definitely one of the very best.

Yeah, you're probably right. I don't know if anything's really fixable at this point though. Still, more fuel for the fire for the next time I draw Harley! Cheers for taking a look! :boogie:

Yeah, she ended up looking younger than I'd intended. I think it's partly due to being next to the craggy mountain of Croc but either way, next time I draw her I'll try to make her look a bit older.
