Sketch of two tribal kids in snow valley

Sketch of two tribal kids on snow valley.  Here is a quick sketch of two Mongol children in snow valley.  I have been kind of sick for a few days so really have not done much.  I think it was the flu that took me down.  I still try to go run almost everyday but it was very difficult.  Well, let just say it sucks.  I would feel really good for like three hours then really sick for about two hours, it circles like that all day for a few days.  It was very confusing.
Though I know my body told me to rest more so I listen.
I've read a lot in the past few days since I couldn't really do much.  So I continued to read "Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin again since I left it unfinished about two years ago.  Then I think I should probably paint some of the characters, there are so many awesome characters in the book.  Eddard Stark, Jon Snow, Tyrian Lannister, and Arya Stark are probably my most favorite characters.  And now the show is on HBO already 2 episodes.
The funny thing is, about 5 years ago I was working as freelance illustrator on my free time apart from Guild Wars.  I usually received assignment with a paragraph description.  Most of the illustrations that I work on are for "Game of Thrones" but I had no idea what it was back then.  I regretted that I did not read the novel before I assign to do the job.  I was just pumping out work and work, I should have cared a lot more then.  If I could redo all of those illustrations now, I would.  But oh well that was a long time ago.

Then I picked up another book called "Birth of an Empire" by Conn Iggulden, it is also very very good.  It might not be as great as Game of Thrones, but I only went thru a few chapters so we will see.
Then from all those reading, I feel a little better and more inspire so I decided to sketch out some of the blend conceptual from my idea between those books.  I don't know how it comes about to be two Mongol children, but here they are.

This is the very first sketch.  I didn't like it so I started over.

Here are the better version and I decide to add one more kid in there.

Then I think I should stay true to the traditional historically cooler and better Mongol hair style.

Did you the different between the hair style?  Which one do you like better, post you opinion on the comment below.

Here are step by step digital sketch of Mongol children below.

Here is a final I decide on that I might work on it a little more later.  With the true tribal hair, yes.
