Character Study: Lukas Torian

A character who is introduced in the second part (the historical aspect) of my story during the Swiss Renaissance is Doctor Lukas Torian.  He is an alchemist and vampire hunter/healer.  He carries an executioner’s sword with him on his travels and uses it to kill vampires.  This is my first drawing of him and instead of the sword being more historically accurate, I pictured it larger and exaggerated like something from the Soul Calibur video games.  I will try adding a broader, heavier sword later.

Here are some examples of what a real executioner’s sword looks like:

One is also available for auction!

I got new grey markers, so I’m looking forward to doing more drawings and them not looking so dry!
