Crash Bandicoot - Pinstripe original concept sketch

Look what I found! This is the original concept design for the character of Pinstripe from the days of Willy the Wombat. I initially drew him like a 1920s Chicago mobster kind of a rat henchman. Pinstripe became more of a New York / New Jersey wise guy. This was how I first conceived the look for the character.

Awesome! This design was used not for Pinstripe but for the enemy Potoroo that shoot with two guns in Crash Bandicoot 1 right?

Pinstripe Potoroo is one and the same character, this is just an early version

Gabriele Fiasconaro yes, I think you are right.

I might be mistaken about this character. I went through the body of work I did for the original Crash game. He's labeled as a "Mafia Henchman". There's also a second character that's labeled the same way. He may or may not be a prototype for Pinstripe. I can't quite recall if he was or if he and the other character were sidekicks for Pinstripe. Anyway, it is what it is. Hope you enjoy it none the less.
