The Weirdsmith

Here we have the Weirdsmith, 1995 version. Probably the earliest version. The Weirdsmith is one of many characters who came to me as images before I had any sort of story to tell about them. In W’s case the image is of a guy in a suit wearing gloves and a strange inhuman mask. The suit is featureless. That is, when drawn, only the edges have definition, it’s a single color or shade.

The really rough sketch in the corner is the Weirdsmith sans mask, long haired and burnt out looking. Or at least he’d look that way if I’d finished the sketch.
