Steppe rider

in March I showed this drawing here, and toady I sketched a little quick one, in a sort of continuation of the theme of Polovtzi.
I have this idea to draw a few of more of these guys -  Polovetz (Cuman) warriors.

A few good readings to have:

From Attila to Charlemagne - an art book from the MET
