#078 Old Master of the Woods

Here is one of my character sketches from last week. The description we were given was:
Quiet, Feeble, Old Man, Subdued.
Whether or not I illustrated this properly, that is left for you to decide. I liked the idea of a forest-dwelling hermit who gathers herbs, illuminates manuscripts, drinks tea, converses with trees and woodland creatures, and has a staff that is cut but still lives. He's just a really great guy when you get to know him, even if his snug little hut does smell of body odor and spring garlic.

I guess physically feeble but definitely not mentally. He looks very wise.
