I was digging through my old portfolio and came across this from 1999.
When I started working on my second volume of Phineus, after Phin had his heart attack in “Rotwang”, I knew I wanted to change his look. This was what I was looking at doing. Giving him a more dressed up look, and cane, as I was going to have him walk with a limp. I went more scruffy than fancy, as you know by now. Still, I kind of dig this one.
