Haunted Arkham Asylum by ArtistAbe Haunted Arkham Asylum by ArtistAbe
I couldn't help but give the Disneyland Haunted Mansion ride stretching portraits a Batman crossover:) Here's the original stretching portraits from the ride: www.doombuggies.com/images/sec…

Harley Quinn and Killer Croc-
This was the last one I did because I was still unsure what I wanted to do with Harley Quinn's outfit. Sure I could have made it easier on myself just to put her in her standard costume, but I'd miss the opportunity to put her in a dress. I'm not that great at fashion, but this was one of the ideas I had for her outfit that I finally settled on. Pretty happy with how it turned out. :) I thought about giving her the umbrella for a split second, but then it's Harley! So I gave her a croquet mallet.
Croc was the obvious choice to replace the crocodile.

Joker and Scarface-
The original portrait had his pants down, so who better to pull that off than the Joker! He's doing the drinking water while still having the puppet talk trick, just fyi. I didn't intend to have at least two Batman characters in each portrait, but it kind of happened that way. I've always liked the Scarface character so I jumped at the chance to draw him in this piece.

Poison Ivy and Ra's Al Ghul-
For a while now, I've been trying to make my own design for Poison Ivy. Finally was able to draw it in this piece. Wasn't sure if I wanted to give her a normal human skin tone or go with a green one so I just made it really pale. Much like in the rebooted Batman animated series version of Poison Ivy. The weeping willow skirt I gave her would be pretty long and drag on the floor a bit like a peacock tail.
For the tombstone, I originally was going to make it be Two Face just because they have a history of quarreling with each other. Then I didn't like the idea of killing Mr. Dent so I decided to just have fun with it and make it Ra's Al Ghul. He's always dying and coming back so no big deal there :)

Batman family and Clayface-
I definitely wanted to have Batman in one of the portraits, but wasn't sure until I started sketching ideas with this one. Ended up drawing most of the bat family :) I wanted to have a Robin in the middle just so the colors could stand out more, but decided to keep it to the original trio.
Clayface in place of the quick sand. Very appropriate I thought.

Lots of enjoyment was had drawing this crossover :D

print size is 11x17 inches

Just genius. First saw the Highwire Harley on a Teefury post on FB; unfortunate that they're not available any more. :(

I saw your name on the list of artists coming to Salt Lake ComicCon and came here to see what you did. This is one of the coolest pieces I've seen on DA in a while! Love the classic feel while still keeping true to the character. Plus each panel has this sweet spot and sinister side thing going on. Really nice work!

Bought the Joker and Batman prints when they were on TeeFury. I'll definitely buy the Harley and Ivy ones if and when they ever show up.

Is this haunted asylum actually streching? Or is it your imagination Batsy?

Will you be at DragonCon? I'm considering doing this as a Cosplay if you wouldn't mind.
