The Smoking Man

I mentioned somewhere that my original version of the Strawman had him enjoying a corncob pipe by the fire.  It never came to pass as I just didn't dig the vibe.  But I kept the pipe and wanted to eventually snap some photos (if you look closely you can see a tiny thin sprite of smoke [from a piece of an incense cone dropped in the end of the pipe]).

Looks cool!
The incense is a good idea...

Strawman with the pipe makes him look like he is ready to tell the stories of times past.

Without the pipe, he looks like he’s coming up with plans that will raise havoc and terror in the lives of humans..........

so thrilled that you posted this.

a fantastic touch. I understand why it wasn't included in the final set up, but it's great to see here.

I love the Strawman and his eloquently long fingers. The hands say so much about the character. It's nice to know he has vices too. :) The wisp of smoke is almost dreamlike.
