Mage Siblings Portraits Sketches


 This is a quick sketch of two characters that popped in my head today at work. Thaeden and Kalii are both mages that remain on the move since they are pursued by various groups of people that wish to use them as weapons. Thaeden is 5 years old and is the more powerful of the two siblings. While his power is tremendous he still young and has trouble controlling the magic. When he is happy or contented he is able to focus and perform most mid level spells with ease, When frightened Thaeden has a tendency to produce only defensive magic. Anger and terror cause him to lash out, and during these moments he taps into the legendary magic of the ancients, Aethirok. Kalii is 11 years old but has had to mature beyond her years in order to protect her little brother. Her magic powers are substantial and extensive, as she practices and studies whenever she can. Kalii prefers both destructive and healing magic over anything others, as they have proven most effective when protecting Thaeden. She has taught Thaeden codewords that help to guide him in spellcasting, and that can calm him down when he begins to lose control of the Aethirok. The siblings can channel each others magic when they have need of it, which comes in handy when Kalii needs to siphon off the extra power from Thaeden when he loses control. The siblings don't trust many people aside from their older "Adoptive brother" Lennick, who helps protect them even though he isn't a mage.

I think Figure and Life Drawing is important to anyone in the art world in order to keep their skills sharp.  All of these drawings were done in vine charcoal on news print.
