Dennis Willman Art Notes:
The character of Jolly is, of course, a play on Harley Quinn and the Joker. Instead of symmetrical patterns I went with offset loops and odd shapes to create the jester motif.
The horns are indeed a nod to Harley Quinn, but their design is a nod to Tim Curry’s portrayal of The Lord of Darkness.
The photo reference of Rachel was a very intense, semi-evil shot that reminded me of how Tim Curry can express death on wheels with a smile.
Rachel can emote like he does, so her face make-up was made to resemble the make-up Curry wore as Pennywise in “IT.” Her fishnet stockings are from a template that I created a few years back that can be distorted and warped to match the shape of the legs (I think I created it for a Ginger-Stein illustration…).
The trick is “mucking up” the template to match the pencil work and the painting of the composition. The balloons are another nod to Pennywise, and I hope the character comes off as fun and unique, yet scary in her own right.
