This commission was inspired by my earlier Harley Quinn painting. The client just wanted the video game costume and I was sent a different image of cosplayer Jessica Nigri wearing the outfit. I did a search for reference images and she had some of the better ones so I decided to use her for my reference.
Below are a few WIP images I scanned while working on this. Essentially the same as the others, pencil drawing, some ink washes to block in the dark values, then layering colors. The last touches are a bit of color pencil.
