Comic Research: Visual Reference for Elder

One of the characters within my story is a villager elder. A man whose role is to hold a record of the past using verbal storytelling to keep the history of the people alive, in the way tribes have done for thousands of years. The following is visual research for use in designing this character and as referencing for studies of older faces as I’ve not attempted many elderly characters in the past. I want the man/woman’s features and clothing to seem rich in history with possible hints to a past long gone.
