Daily Doodle: Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn stole my heart in the animated Batman Series featuring the artwork of Bruce Timm but Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad stole the show.

Margot Robbie totally stole the show and captivated me in the movie Suicide Squad. I was unprepared for the actress’s mastery of appearing delightfully unhinged. She actually made batshit-crazy utterly endearing.

I have never witnessed anything so beautiful being so utterly terrifying at the same time. Come to think of it, feminine beauty has always been able to corrupt even the most powerful men and make them putty in the hands of a wiley woman. Happily, most woman aren’t batshit crazy like Harley Quinn and want to see everything burn. Otherwise we’d be in big trouble.

TRANS-GENDER WARS

Since Disney has taken over the Star Wars franchise more leading roles have been taken by women. Why not go all the way?

I always thought 3-CPO would have been far more interesting as a girl Protocol Droid. The droid’s character seems to fit far more comfortably if we rather see it as a ‘she’ rather than a ‘he’.

R2D2 was a great companion to Luke Skywalker, so why shouldn’t 3-CPO be the perfect sidekick for Princess Leia? It makes perfect sense to me!

Would you agree? Either way it was fun to doodle this eye candy version of an otherwise neurotic, bossy and stuck up automaton.

When Prince Harry met his match and lost his marbles.

Prince Harry was the most interesting Royal for me, but since he met and married Meghan Markle he seems to have lost his Royale Balles.

I’ve got nothing against either Meghan or Harry. Claims of a ”racist media’ and Harry’s sudden change of tack is odd. It raises the question about who is wearing the pants in that already intersectionally-sanctioned and overtly privileged household?

That’s life in Ye Olde Royale Bedde Miss Markle, but it seems a little pea or two is threatening to dislodge the Precious Princess…

Cartoon Character Development

Unused Ping the Panda for a soon to be launched web site.

It starts with rough ideas and a workaround to get the details clear…
I added a bit of shading to show the patterning…

Sadly the job has been canned. The client not being happy with the direction the character was going. Apparently not committed to the process nor understanding how much work goes into developing a character.

Ping will not be seen online as the mascot to the website, but will be here for all to see and enjoy!! 😉

Movember 28: Groucho Marx

Groucho was one of the Marx Brothers. They were a comedic trio that delighted audiences in the early days of cinema. What amazes me is how distinctive and enduring his persona was. I suspect he somehow tapped into an archetype that we all recognise. Or maybe it was just the eyes, or the hair, or the moustache. Yep, that moustache is unforgettable!

Movember 26: Charlie Chaplin

Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp struck a chord for countless people all over the world. The character still resonates with society today. The Little Tramp is poignant, quirky and sweet. He had a moustache too and no collection of moustaches would be complete with The Little Tramp.

The Little Tramp. An invention by Charlie Chaplin.

Charlie Chaplin wrote a song that seems to complement the Little Tramp character. It is beautifully sad and yet; hopeful. Just like The Little Tramp.

“Smile
Tho’ your heart is aching

Smile
Even tho’ it’s breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by
If you
Smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

You’ll see the sun come shining thru for you.

Light up your face with gladness

Hide ev’ry trace of sadness

Altho’ a tear maybe ever so near

That’s the time you must keep on trying

Smile
What’s the use of crying

You’ll find that life is still worth while”
