Malachi Sketches


These are some gesture and expression sketches of Malachi Maelstromm, the resident professor and psychic of the Duerian School of Gifted Youths. He teaches children (and sometimes adults) how to use their magical, psychic or other form of powers.

Malachi is a calm, gentle character. Even when he's angry, he never looks furious. Most of the time he's mellow and laid back, even in the face of fear and chaos. He's much older than he looks, and has the wisdom of someone who's seen just about everything before.

He's a minor character who comes and goes from the spotlight as needed, but spends most of the time in the background. However, despite being a minor character, he is an important one to the story and thus I wanted to practice sketching him.
