STATIC SHOCK sketches by bluestraggler STATIC SHOCK sketches by bluestraggler
I have this very persistent problem of falling especially hard into obscuro-/dead-fandoms. (I blame my comic/cartoon connoisseur friend for her irresistable influence.) Right now I'm in some serious love with Static Shock. Yeah, that super awesome cartoon with the doubly super awesome black main character. So awesome, and sadly unknown/underappreciated now, that it warrants ALL-CAPS in the title for every SS fanart I do.

Anyway, here are some sketches of Virgil and Richie I did in class to keep awake. Since I'm a slave to quasi-realism Virg's dreads came out a lot floppier when translated in my style. Also, unintentionally, vaguely feminine DX I'm totally happy with Richie though, and it's on him that I unwittingly drew the most incredible Sadface I've ever drawn.

If you expect that Virchie art will surely follow, you know me well. >8D

Love, love! So much love! I forgot Static Shock even existed until a little recently. It had my thinking, WHY would my brain FORGET this!? Static is awesome. ^_^ Your art is awesome. Woot.

I'm not sure if its just me but I really hope they make a new series for SS. when i think of it as a *possible anime* i get the tingles. but wonderful work on virgils dreds, every time i try i make it look like he has snakes on his head and it looks funny.

AGREED. It's so hard to find people who watch and like Static Shock. I'm even rewatching the whole series on YouTube. Love your sketches though. Richie looks AWESOME.

Richie with an ear piercing?

Yeah, actually it's canon in the series. Partway through season 2 you'll notice he starts wearing a single earring in his right ear.

I wonder how his dad felt when he got his left ear pierced

Actually it was my mistake, I'd thought it was his left but in the cartoon it was actually his right haha
