Husaria - sketches -on Paczki Day

Salvete Omnes,
today is Fat Thursday and in Polish culture today one must eat pączki ( Polish doughnuts ) - :) more the better - like those in this picture.

... and also today the good month of Luty  (February) ends so to finish off this not a bad month I am sharing several reworked sketches or sketches in process of being reworked.
the theme is the famous Pastorius engraving showing a winged hussar with his lance lowered to strike and the end of his lance rests in the tok (lance boot) attached to the pommel of the saddle with a leather strap.

Nota bene my friend Radoslaw Sikora's book on husaria is selling well throughout Poland - being a bestseller.
