"All for one; me!"
- The Medieval Spy


I really felt like I was pushing the boundaries when designing this one. It deviates a lot from the original Spy (granted, the Soldier deviated quite a bit as well), and may be a bit "busy" compared to the original designs. They're supposed to be clear, clean an easily recognizable, and while this one would be easily recognizable and still retains the Spy's lanky appearance, it might have a bit too many doodads hanging around.

His overall theme wound up dragging a lot from the popularized Three Musketeers look: he's a dapper French scoundrel, and so were they. I think. The Spy mask, a central feature in the Spy's original design, originally wound up getting pulled from this redesign, though I eventually changed it to a team-coloured carnival mask. A spy without his mask just isn't the same.



The hat is a classic musketeer hat, with a team-coloured plume and a curly hairdo underneath. It comes with (i.e. separately, like with the camera beard) a flamboyant Van Dyke beard, for that extra bit of dapperness.

The melee weapon is a dagger which, by the totally not inconspicuous green coating, is poisoned. Easy solution that brings back the good old tranquilizer from TFC, for those who remember that.

The cloak is the... cloak on his left shoulder, which I totally did not shamelessly swipe from the Assassin's Creed series. Okay, I did. I like the design of them, and while actually hiding behind one would probably never work in the real world, bringing up a shoulder cloak in front of your face as a way of sneaking about seems to me like something that could fit very nicely in a medieval TF2.


EDIT: Edited in a carnival mask. Guess there was a solution for the mask after all.

Maybe if his cloak was opposite color, and a navy blue instead of bright. It may come off as confusing what team he is on, but, for spy, that is an advantage.(just the cloak).

Swave, isn't he? Spy the Daggerteer. I remember the tranquilizer from TFC. It could work like that if you miss. But if you get a backstab, they wont make a sound. And the cape could act like the invisible one from Harry Potter. I've always had an idea for that if Spy was ever gonna have a Magicians Update XD.
It's funny, he seems a bit too medieval for his own good.

I lol'd at your cloak, but wouldn't people be able to sort of "see him" in a way if he were using it?
Just a thought

If the spy's willing suspension of disbelief lets him turn invisible with a wrist watch, he can do the same with a shoulder-wrapped cloak.

Aah. I would like to try Medieval Spy a run, but I don't know if I have it, since I got it once it was F2P. That, and I would lag and crash.

LOL. Spy reminds me of Will Turner at the end of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

I wanted to make some sort of Athos, Porthos, Aramis TF2 joke, but it's hard to find a suitable match for all names.

Think I'll darken that colour a bit in that case. Convincing yourself that he's not wearing any pants may bring forth some images that cannot be unseen. :paranoid:

It looks good, I can imagine this guy being a spy in the medieval ages.
Though, I think this drawing would be better if you made him hold a full-face carnival mask in his left hand.
Else than that, it looks like it could work.

I wonder how a medieval spy would infiltrate enemy forces...

Folji Featured By Owner May 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, dang. A carnival mask. Actually didn't think of that. Might just tweak one in, since it makes more sense for the spy to cover his face with something than leave it bare.
