Mongolian Tatar after M.V. Gorelik and Chinese Medieval art

finally I am going to start ''touching'' the subject of the greatest son of the Eurasian steppe and his Altaic people  - Chinggis Khan (Genghis Khan).
Allow me to start with a sketch in progress of a Tatar (Mongolian tribe, enemies of Chinggis Khan) bodyguard, done after Russian scientist and artist M.V. Gorelik's reconstruction, based on the Chinese drawings from XIII-XV centuries, Note his mace is not finished, just a head of it there.

Next drawing in this theme should be of a horseman and horse tack... fingers crossed
