Smithson: Darryl O'Doyle Sketches

This page from earlier in the year shows my attempts to get a fix on the design of the mysterious Darryl O'Doyle, a character in Smithson. Fortunately for me, the chief architect of O'Doyle's look is Roger Langridge, who is very, very good at boiling a character down to his comic essentials. I was able to follow his lead for my rendition.

O'Doyle appears in two versions in Smithson, as a lively child prodigy and as a washed-up, distinctly non-talented-looking adult (who nevertheless seems to get a second act in life by means of automatic writing.)
