STATIC SHOCK college days by bluestraggler STATIC SHOCK college days by bluestraggler
Drew this a while back and forgot I never posted it. College age Virgil and Richie. I imagine Richie would grow up into 1 of 2 aesthetic styles: either Jensen from The Losers (scruffy and dorky but pretty buff; upon further consideration Richie struck me as a... fleshier sort of guy) or a hipster, as shown in this picture.

Ah it's so great to see these two again, I always loved Static Shock! I really like how you designed them, their unique coats are really cool!

Ahhh absolute LOVE! One of my favorite series as a kid, even my dad liked watching it with us XD
Such a ...I can't find the right adjective...I just love this revamp so much. Especially hipster Richie-I know a guy like that at my college who looks just like that, except with a bandanna around his neck rather than headphones.

IM SO GLAD THAT SOMEONE ELSE THINKS HE WOULD LOOK LIKE JENSEN. I had a whole conversation on tumblr about how basically whenever I watch the losers, all I see when Jensen comes on screen is adult Richie. I just cannot unsee!

OH MAN OH MAN I'M SO HAPPY YOU THINK THE SAME SLDJFJSD cuz it's like, what are the odds someone would even KNOW both The Losers AND Static Shock?? Much less connect Richie and Jensen lsdjf

Funny story, the whole thing came up cuz my friend made the connections Pooch -> Virg, Jensen -> Richie, Cougar -> Jaime (current Blue Beetle) and I like freaked out it was so perfect. Jensen!Rich is definitely my stronger headcanon now (stronger than hipster!Rich) cuz, Rich is a little bit big? So I see him getting buffer instead of thinner. And you know he'd sooner wear awesome dorky Jensen shirts than plaid flannel XDDD SORRY TL;DR JENSEN AND RICH ARE JUST LIKE MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE SERIES

OH MY GOD I KNOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW. WE HAVE SUCH A SMALL FANDOM.

also, I pretty much just like, screamed out at my computer. VIRGIL IS TOTALLY POOCH! THIS IS TOO PERFECT. We actually were talking about that, how virg would be pooch, and richie would be jensen, if they were all grown up. Hipster richie is adorable, but I definitely think that realistically, he would be more like jensen. We even has a headcanon that his 'niece' (sharon and adams kid) would play soccer and he would wear the team shirt EVERYWHERE. YEP.

Im not as familer with jaime, but I have heard that he is the shit, and everyone likes him, and that him and virg are canon bros in the teen titans comic.

I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE ELSE SEES THESE THINGS YOU DONT UNDERSTAND

YEAH CUZ POOCH AND JENSEN KEEP SASSING EACH OTHER AND ARE TOTES BFFS SLDKJF

ALSO THAT HEADCANON IS AMAZING AND ADORABLE AAAHHHHSLJFHG omgggg Sharon and Adam's kid *___*

Oh man I don't care for DC pretty much at all except for Static (who isn't even technically DC) and Jaime!Blue Beetle. If you ever have the chance you should check out the BB comic! He only had 3 solo volumes before he was assimilated into TT, which was horrible to both him and Virg other than the part where they're bros.

I KNOW ME TOO LIKEWISE AARHGLJSDFH

Great outfits! Are you going to do updated hero costumes for them too?

Thank you! Actually I did redesign Static a while ago, but I still haven't done so for Gear. Gear REALLY BADLY needs a redesign cuz his costume is... kinda dorky looking :x

His costume looks like he's racing bicycles. Those outfits look dorky on everyone. Might I suggest something ... armored?
