Having read all of them, I agree with the general consensus that the first Discworld novel isn't quite the best, by a long shot, but it was my introduction to the Discworld proper and Rincewind will always have a special spot in my heart. The above is not too terribly far off from how I pictured him while reading the start of the novel. Not quite so scarred and battered as he would be when Twoflower is done with him, but still a little shabby. I will, of course, always picture him as sounding like Eric Idle, thanks to the Discworld games. The pose above came out a bit like Rincewind looking at Twoflower like he's bananas while Twoflower explains what he's up to in The Broken Drum. Kind of a "Who is this madman in the flowery shirt?" look.

Not too horrid for a first stab at Rincewind, I guess. Done in pencils, shaded, and heavily based upon several of Paul Kidby's lovely drawings, which highlight the "Shaggy from Scooby Doo-ness" of our hero. Not entirely happy with the sleeves, but at any rate, there it is.

I think he looks a bit serene here.
