Not Quite So Naked

Darl didn't get his trademark "Leafs" shirt right away.  When he first arrived in the Rock, he went naked like other Fraggles.  Unlike other Fraggles, he was self-conscious about it until Kiki found him this worn wrap.

I'm personally reminded of a few older pieces with Kjola in poncho-style drapery. I always thought it was a better, freer look, on the whole, than the traditional close-fitting quasi-metallic outfit. Ditto here over the jersey, I think. Also interesting to see a shading technique outside (or rather in addition to) the ink stroke crosshatching.

I was never comfortable with cross-hatching -- it tends to create "blobs" when I do it.

I might be using the wrong precise term, then. I mean the characteristic parallel shading done with a ballpoint, I suppose, rather anything done with perpendicular lines. If there's an actual concise name for that.

Didn't her wears a hockey jersey?

That came a little later, after being there a full year -- the story was told in the second bit of fan fiction I wrote about Fraggle Rock.

One I'm still waiting to read it.
A bit of similarity with your Fleur the skunk pic from a few years ago. Darl looks shy. Not vulnerable, or pitiable. I guess his adaption to Fraggledom is starting from the shoulders down. I'm sure he'll figure how to tie it around his wait eventually.

In this case its more like a Mexican serape and there isn't the variety of form or pattern that Kjola ponchos have.  Also, it was more of a stop-gap in Darl's case.
