    Well heres how it started, i was looking through the portfolio of the tf2 concept artist Moby Francke and while looking there i found a picture called "Studies2" The character had a really familiar head shape then i looked at bottom part of the drawing and noticed the pyros clothes and suspender things. It was right in our faces all along and we never managed to notice it.

    Looks a tiny bit like Vinnie jones


    If the pyro was proper hardcore cockney badass with a passion for fire, he should look like Vinnie Jones.

    Here is his online portfolio, if you look at sketches you can see the concepts for the early tf2 from hl2 beta leak and some other VERY basic class sketches.

       go to 2fort and look at pyro's clothing, you'll see a woman's handbag with a flower on it.   

    Gimme more clocks. So I can wake up earlier! :3:

    Fire means heat.

    Heat means hot water

    Hot water means tea.


    IT ALL MAKES SENSE!

    I swear that the pyro says excellent sometimes when you use the positive voice menu thing.

    I would guess he was Russian if that nationality wasn't taken by Heavy already.

    One of his battle cries could be "We will cremate them."

    Awesome find. This will forever be burned (lol) into my head as the Pyro's face until Valve says otherwise.

    It certainly WAS the Pyro's face at SOME point, so this is the closest we've got.

    you know, sometimes artists draw faces for practice in order to come up with concepts of final designs. they draw basic faces and keep adding facial features to them everytime they draw the face. the final product is usually something that is original and well personalized.

    for one, the artist could just as well drawn this for ANY class, not just the pyro. for another thing, you have to remember, this could be an extremely early design for the pyro, and it could have changed multiple multiple times during the design. even then, valve probably said "let's keep the gender mysterious", thus creating the gas mask.

    jumping to conclusions is what you guys do best, though, so i'm sorry if i ruined your fun

    The unmasked Spy is also on the same page. He's a bit hard to see on my computer because the website doesn't... well, it's flipping out.

    But yeah, this is just concept art (look at all the other designs). Still, it's funny.
