It’s CK/virtualcara again!
I don’t even know where to start with this cover (Suicide Squad #1, cover by Ryan Benjamin), there is just too much wrong with the way Harley is shown here. So I’ll try and point out the things that aren’t. 
- You can see that her shoulders and hips are on a different angle from each other. This is correct, it happens when a person walks. The forward leg’s hip will rise while the shoulder on the same side dips to maintain balance.
- Her boobs seem to be obeying gravity, which is normally a rare thing to see in comics. HOWEVER in this context, she’s wearing a laced corset top which has no support to stay on aside from how tight the lacings are. Unless it’s using tape or spirit gum on the underside I’d expect to see more breast distortion there (this is roughly half of what corsets were designed to do, during a time when small breasts were considered more attractive - the other half is to distort the ribs & waist to make hips appear wider and more childbirth-y).
- Line of action (red line) - the composition doesn’t have any unfortunate implications that would lead the viewer’s eye to stay on T or A, instead it goes right up and into the logo space. 
What I changed:
I added more definition and weight to Harley’s torso, giving her a pelvis and I gave her breasts a bit more support - though even while they look more less implausible they still look a bit unnatural (see: corset). I also brought out her right arm so it was visible and made her raised arm slightly shorter so it wasn’t as exaggerated with the other changes.
What would make this even better:
A different costume. In Batman Beyond, Harley’s granddaughters pulled off a great halter/hotpants outfit while appearing practical and comfortable.  This one is incredibly busy and doesn’t seem nearly as economical as the DeeDees. 

There I go, scribbling on art again.

An 8x11 consketch of Harley Quinn from Hal-Con 2011. I got more “Do you have any Harley?” questions than for anything else over the entire weekend - including “is this your art?”, which is some mean feat. Unfortunately this is the only commission for it, I’m going to have to find more excuses to draw her in the near future.

[Harley Quinn posed seductively with a seductive smile, back arched and arms up, with her hands behind her head. She’s holding a large bomb there, with a long, lit fuse.]
Baby, you blow up my world.
