If it wasn't from a Bruce Timm illustration as inspiration...I would've guessed it was inspired by illustrator Shane Glines. This Rocks! Gotta love Harley! Wink You did a beautiful job with her!

Shane was actually Bruce's protege for a while and did the character designs for Batman:The Animated Series and other Batman shows.  ^_^  I'm a HUGE fan of both of them, and have a great original Harley sketch from Bruce. 

I'm loving the skateboard!  I can't believe how nice it turned out.  I would have thought it was a professional print job if I didn't know better.  This is definately at the top of my list for this challenge!

Having an open mind isn't a bad thing. Just don't open it so wide that your brain falls out.

I LOVE Miss. Quinn. She's always been my favorite Batman character. Wonderful paint job. I dont skate, but i would for this board!

I love personal swaps! I always need fabric, findings/notions, and cute handmade things!

Great job!  It looks very professional.  What kind of paints did you use?

I primed first with a spray primer (after sanding like crazy, of course), then I used good ol' acrylic (not the watery craft stuff, though, the acrylics for painting canvasses etc.) Then I did some spots of important detail with permanent marker, then I varnished with a water-based varnish that wouldn't eat my marker or paint.  A word to the wise: be careful with your varnish choices, and esp. make sure you test any paint and markers on a scrap of the same material you're painting on (ie. I tested my markers and paint under the varnish on a scrap of wood, since this board is wood). I had to test a bunch of brands of markers to get one that wouldn't run when the varnish hit it. And a special secret tip: markers and acrylic paints need three days to "set" and stop off-gassing, so DON'T apply varnish to anything that is less than three days' painted. You can ruin something really special.

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

I hit this rocks.

I have a bamboo sector 9 board I've been meaning to paint.
Maybe I should get on that.
