Alatriste Characters: Malatesta

A drawing of Gualterio Malatesta, from Arturo Perez-Reverte's Alatriste novels

The last Alatriste drawing is Alatriste's nemesis Malatesta, the Italian Sword-for-Hire. I did another one of these, but I screwed up and sort of did an amalgam of two of the characters as I remembered them, and it accurately reflects neither, so I'm dropping it.

I've got a CRAZY amount of work over the next couple of weeks - I still have three radio scripts to write for the Decoder Ring Theatre Summer Showcase, I've got to put together a classroom guide for Crogan's Loyalty, and I've got to do 22 pages of pencils and inks for a comic (found out about that one day before yesterday, and am supposed to get the script today, I think). That, plus I'm teaching a full load, so it's going to be a real nose-to-the-grindstone January.

I mention this because I've been reasonably good about posting every weekday lately, and that's not gonna happen for a little bit. I've got a backlog of Harry Potter drawings, so I'm set for Wizarding Wednesdays for the forseeable future, but it may be a little while before I'm back on the every day schedule.
