Mongol soldier quick paint over step by step

Mongol soldier quick paint over step by step. Here is another re-paint of one of my older sketch from 2007, how to draw manga comic Mongol warrior.  I sketch it really quick in photoshop way back then.  It took me less then 20 minutes and I thought it has a potential to be flesh out a bit more.  I finally get some time to get around to paint over the Mongol soldier.  In similar fashion to a few posts earlier, how to draw barbarian warrior, I plan to paint over or re-paint more of my older works that I've never have time to actually finish them how they intended to be.

In this one, I also try to experiment more with lighting.  It turns out close to what I want, but I should have spend more time doing research and paint.  But a few hours in, I had to put my Wacom tablet down because I am really hungry.  Also I have to follow my schedule and go run for a few miles.  I do run almost every day if I've never mention.

Anyway, I am trying to experiment more with different lighting situation.  Like the previous draw barbarian warrior, I am trying to push my speedpainting on to a different direction of what I usually do.  In this one, I have the Mongol soldier's back toward the wall that cast shadow, but the bright afternoon light is coming from his right hand side.  I am trying to get my quick painting be a bit more dramatic than usual easy pin up.  And I have no idea what to put in front of him at the time.  So I have some sort of werewolf or werebear creature facing against him to create tension in the quick illustration.

After all, I learn one important thing.  I have to paint more and look for some lighting sample or reference.  I will eventually polish the Mongol and the barbarian up when I have some more time, but today... this is it.
