Blitzle and Zebstrika make me think of 80s rock and punk with their mohawks, lightning bolts, and acid-colored accents. I figure that Blitzle here would be the little sister, still a little pop in her sensibilities, and that big sis Zebstrika would be a full-on punk rocker.
This was a total midnight special--a warmup sketch that got a quick hit of color on a whim. This was in full color (I even have a finished, saved version of it in color) until I realized that I had secretly been wanting it in monochrome the whole danged time. So here we are.
Hope you enjoy this little quickie!
