The Knight: Pose 1

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Another sketch from my Moleskin Sketchbook.This is a character I came up with for a "comic" that I thought about doing.  Basically he is a bumbling mercenary that everyone confuses for this hero from a prophecy that will deliver them from evil, the hero is simply called "the knight".  The desciption of this hero from the prophecy matches this character, even the most crucial part that "the knight" will never and has never lost a battle to man, beast or magical conjuring.  As bumbling as he is, he somehow manages to always escape capture, win fights and destroy monsters...even if by sheer luck.  Because of this people beleive he is of prophecy, regardless of what he tells them.  The running gag is that nobody ever knows his real name and only call him "the knight" and the idea is that everytime he has a chance to tell someone his name a beast attacks, he's knocked out, or something like that.  He constantly trys to NOT help people, but always gets dragged in somehow because of this prophecy business.  There are some people though that do only see him as a bumbling, clusy, foolhardy person and think he in no way can be this hero.  Despite his bumbling antics he is actually quite skilled at a number of tasks and can be very smart, surprising the naysayers and empowering the prophecy beliefs.
