"Harley: The one and only.
I started this, let’s say rendition to the one and only good Bruce Timm Harley Quinn’s design that would ever exist (legal one at least since I’ve seen many great fanart redesigns) about a year ago or so right after playing Arkham Asylum game. Not very fond with the Harley nurse design so I drew just her hanging, then new designs came out from Arkham City and man, YUCK! And then the worst of them all (again, in my opinion) from the new goofy DC Reboot, so that’s how we get all of them hanging there. In retrospective, I kinda like the nurse one now, but still it’s kinda purposeless all the meat out there. THERE’S NO NEED, to sexualize every female character when they’re just great as is (note what they did to Starfire, and I’m not fond either with the new P-Ivy chick either) so this is some sort of rant in fanart form.

Boots from Harley from the comic are done loosely by my guessing a full body designs since when I made the linearts and all we’d that one creepy ugly pic from Harley comic you might all know.

Bruce Timm, no one will beat you, you’re still the man!"

Personally, Arkham City is my favorite Harley and I don't mind the Asylum one although I LOVE her boots and mask. Don't care for new 52 Harley and I prefer the classic Harley in Ami-Comi style or without the headdress like in Ryoko Demon's take. Arkham Knight Harley is pretty good but seems more like a meshing of various Arkham designs and not really that stand out. I like the Suicide Squad one Margot Robbie is portraying but I can NOT stand Jared Leto's Joker design.

That reminds me: Did anybody else think it was just awesome to see Harley in her Jester Suit in the Batgirl DLC? Such a treat after four games. Honestly, it blew her other costumes out of the water.

A story on how this happened...
An invitation goes out from the Original Harley Quinn to the other Harley Quinns.
She gets them stand in front of an old time camera which she adjusts
Instead of picture, a huge boxing glove comes out and knocks them all out

Later they wake up all tied up, "Why are we over molten metal?"
Original Harley, "Sorry Ladies, BUT THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!"

Right on! Harley doesn't need to dress provocatively to be special. Our Clown Queen of Crime is perfect just the way she is. That's why we love her.

The Harley with the red and black hair dosn't seem to care that she's about to die?
CamiFortuna Featured By Owner May 19, 2014   General Artist
Well I wouldn't care if I was a character and my design came to that

   One Quinn to Rule them All...   Great piece of work all-around.
Classic Harley will always be my favourite, I am okay with the design for Arkham Asylum and Revenge of Harley Quinn DLC for AC outfit. True the New DC doesn't work for me, and default outfit for Injustice is in bad taste :(

What's wrong with the nurse costume? It was supposed to fit the circumstances. She was in the asylum, basically part of the new staff. It only made sense for her to wear it. Costumes are part of the fun. Hell, in her first appearance, Harley dressed as a police officer. The biker outfit was pointless, this is true. And I do like the skin bleaching and black and red hair of the new design. Just wish she'd wear her old outfit...
CamiFortuna Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014   General Artist
Being a nurse costume was not the issue but just slutting her up with it is. She did fine with a full body suit I don't really see the need to ruin the character. The nurse outfit is in fact not a nurse outfit but a sexy cosplay version of a nurse outfit, nurses don't really dress that way and Harley while being a doctor in psychiatry didn't use a sexy dr outfit, just a regular one. It could have been solved better but DC, and I know this first hand since I'd to do some job for them, push the sexy onto everything, and sometimes in a character like Harley, who was already good to go, it just ruins her
blues32 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014
She once dressed up in nothing but pie cream. I think they dialed it down a bit for her.

Yeah, but I just explained my point

i love harley's original design. O: i actually do really like her arkham ones, but lord does the new 52 look like shit. i did a pixel of it and i just don't like it.

Hehe lovely! While I didn't grow up with BTA, I know shocking but I never saw it on Finnish TV because they just probably released it on VHS I think, since I never saw any episodes or specials that were released, on TV. But thanks to the Internet and Nostalgia Critic (Doug Walker) I discovered this amazing series, and of course, our loveable Crazy Clown Girl. Who is one of my favorite Female Characters+Villain.

And while I agree that her original costume is the best so far, I KIND of liked her Arkham City costume more than Asylum. That just made me shrug and not really think about it, mostly because I was having a blast listening the voice actress doing her best to entertain us  :)
And this new one that I just saw little while BEFORE commenting here, is the WORST of them! And the look of Harley herself doesn't do justice!

Bless this picture, it sums up exactly how I feel. XD
I was pretty horrified when I saw what they did to her design. I'm seeing a lot of people I agree with in the comments as well - willing to the the Arkham Asylum one fly because of it being themed, but they took it too far.
The outfits being skimpy doesn't really bother me (hell, if I got upset at every impractical female outfit in comics, I'd be here for years) but I feel like the classic is best in that it fits the character, theme, and story better than any other outfit. And really, if it's not broke don't fix it. =P

YES! Original Harley forever! :D
Beyutiful Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
I really like this picture and I respect your opinion. In my opinion I like all of her designs. To me, regardless of her outfit, Harley Quinn will still be Harley Quinn.
DebuLover Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Funny thing, I actually HATE the Bruce Timm version. The Joker can pull off the clown costume well because he can make it look intimidating with his personality. There are people who are afraid of clowns and The Joker makes takes that fear to a whole new level. When I see the Bruce Timm's Harley, I just want to burst out laughing at it because it doesn't strike fear. Essentially it just looks plain silly.

When I see the Bruce Timm version, I don't see intimidating. Bruce Timm's version is too clean, too polished, to well mannered. Harley Quinn's nuts but her costume makes it look like she's playing dress up!

Now looking at the Harley Quinn's revenge costume, I can take her very seriously because she's messy, looks like she's not psychologically well and looks like she will kill you! Her costume shows off that "even though she's acts all innocent, she's crazy"
CamiFortuna Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013   General Artist
Well, as I clearly said on my comment, this is my personal opinion. I think that most of her redesigns are not the worst thing ever but the new 52 ones is pretty terrible from a character design stand of view and what Harley does represent. If you know anything about WHO created Harley and how she really is, she's not meant to instigate fear but the COMPLETE OPPOSITE. Having that in mind, which is not an opinion but mere facts, your not liking the character design for those reasons has no real base or justification, you do have a reason to not like her for not being something you would like to see, that's fine. But the character is not meant to be the gf of Joker and be the exact same as him, she's a distress, a joke note on him and a funny side, a complete different character, not a joker with tits.
The game's version, from the revenge dlc, I think it's just to exploit her sexuality, what makes her crazy there is not her outfit but how and what she says. I particularly dislike that outfit from those game series since it doesn't add nothing to her, and that's just my opinion. basically, I think backwards than you in this matter so I made this pic, that's it.

The new Harley's look as if the creators are trying too hard to make her look "evil" or "villainous", but we all know; First Harley is best Harley.

Agreed. I mean, I kind of like one or two of some of the newer Harly's outfits (Mostly the one that you drew hanging on the left) but I still love the classic Harley the best.
I do not understand why all the female heroes have to be so riscay now.

And the art is awesome. The detail is amazing and the image makes me happy.
