The Line: It is just the CUTEST thing

Based on a suggestion from somebody (repeated by Axel Medellin), pick a comic book character that you’d like to see a “Lil’” version of (like Lil’ Archie, Hellboy Jr. or all of those Skottie Young covers)
TheHeroBiz suggested:
Li’l Arkham Asylum
L'il Arkham Daycare.  There are a bunch of l'il superhero art things (that's what they're called now) out on the web, but they all seem so darn literal in taking characters and smushing them into smaller versions, so I wanted to do something different and portray the Batman crazies as ACTUAL mayhem-causing tots, wrecking up Arkham Daycare for the Criminally Insane (A.K.A. Children).  So a little thanks is in order to l'il Maggie Prevatt, whom I modeled l'il Harley Quinn after.  I swear, she is that cute.

In the background you can see traces of l'il Penguin and l'il Catwoman, since I don't think they're Arkham natives, and l'il Killer Croc and l'il Mr. Zsasz I couldn't think of "L'il" versions of.  Only typing this do I realize that I forgot Mr. Freeze, and that he'd be the perfect "I don't want to play" friend for l'il Bane in the corner there.  Oh well.
