PR: Static Redesign by bluestraggler PR: Static Redesign by bluestraggler
Submitted my Static redesign for Dwayne McDuffie Week at Project: Rooftop! :D Though only last night when I was coloring this did I realize that the one whose costume REALLY needs redesigning is GEAR. I wish the thought had occurred to me earlier so I couldíve submitted both ;__;

Anyway, notes on the design: I actually am rather fond of Staticís official costume (esp. the 2nd/latest one) and I love how functional, simple and stylistically distinctive it is. Itís a bit Ďhood, and a bit tough, without being pretentious or silly. I definitely wanted to keep that tough, streetwise feeling but update it so itís more 2011: zip up sweatshirt with an oversized collared hood, cargo pants, hi-top sneakers, sports shades. The long overshirt thingís a bit silly but I wanted him to still have something billowy that isnít a coat. Shortened his dreads to be more manageable/sensible, and the way I see it, when he changes into Static he ďcharges upĒ once all over and his hair would Super Saiyan a little bit. The gloves have metallic (aluminum based?) pads on the palms and undersides of fingers cuz, well if you think about it, leather/rubber/latex are insulators, no? Why on earth would he wear gloves made out of insulating material? Yes I know itís a foolís errand to try to incorporate ~physics~ into the world of comics but this stuck out to me so I fixed it.

...Just realized I forgot a utility belt though BUMMER :|

He needs no utility belt now, he has hoody pockets! But he looks absolutely amazing. I love the updated look! He was one of my favorite shows to watch as a kid.
