Inside the walls of the kingdom, protected by elite guards, lies a legendary sword. Some believe the sword is a source of great evil and should be destroyed, and others believe it belongs to a noble warrior who will bring peace and light to the land. These beliefs are shaped by legends surrounding "The Blacksmith", the mysterious figure who forged this sword hundreds of years ago.

-Some tell tales of him not even being fully human, but part demon, who created the sword and infused it with demonic power in hopes that the humans would destroy themselves once they gained control of it.
-Others say the sword was crafted by a master blacksmith who with divine inspiration created the sword with the power and blessing of the gods. He was said to be a towering man with divine ability. To create a sword to give to a noble warrior who was prophesied to come and bring peace to the kingdom and end the centuries old war once and for all.

Your challenge is to choose one of the interpretations of this legends and design the blacksmith based off what you imagine they would look like.

Rules and Guidelines:
-This a character design challenge.
-Approach this concept as if you were designing it for a video game or film.
-Any medium is allowed.
-WIPs and finals can be posted in this thread. Try to post all your images in the same post by "editing" it if possible.
-Due before Sam's on stream review on Monday, July 9th.

I decided explore the concept of a humanoid blacksmith turtle. I had more sketches of my process, but I deleted those unfortunately.
