Sketches - Parthians etc

just adding a few sketches as I have been doing more reading of the Parthians of the III-I centuries BC
They are done on computer
the one I 'coloured' it with MyPaint, I had had the black and white one already

and this one is a bit different - i was reading some articles on my friend Dr Kaveh Farrokh's webpage and Dr Kaveh has these old Iranian watercolours from the 1970s there, and while looking at one I sort of copied the standard that had been painted there... 

I like drawing them with what esteemed Russian scholar Valerii Nikonorov calls a klevets - a battle-axe with acutely pointed blade,
I hope you will enjoy them :)
