Shake, Shake, Shake, Selina by MichaelMayne Shake, Shake, Shake, Selina by MichaelMayne
This started off much differently. The initial sketch was drawn with realistic proportions and features. Would have looked nice, but as I kept working on it, Ivy and Harley (especially) wound up moving away from the viewer too much. So when I took it back to the beginning, I wound up changing not only the composition, but the style as well.
Still wanting to give myself a challenge by working outside of my usual niche, I decided to try it with little to no outlines. Just overlapping shapes and colors to define the forms.

Selina Kyle, Pamela Isley, Harley Quinzel, with Joker's hyenas Bud and Lou at either end of the conga line. =D

Probably should have mentioned this from the beginning, but this fun piece was largely inspired by :iconredxharlxoxo: and her enthusiastic championing of the character. Catwoman and Ivy are just along for the ride. =D
But go check out ~RedxHarlxoxo's cosplay photos and try to tell me she doesn't have the character down pat! I'm sure I'll do some Harley art some day depicting her more contemporary attire…!

I love how excited Harley is, how Ivy is going with the flow, and Catwoman isn't too sure how she feels about the whole situation, but is trying to go with it. Great piece, nice style.

Well Hyena's are more closer related to Cats so she can charm it...although that may be the problem
