Horseman Kara-Khitai Icon

Submitted by Javik
This bundle is marked as awaiting update. A staff member has requested changes to it before it can be approved.
I drew the icon myself. Used sources from open access.
Who are the Kara-Khitai? Tribes related to the Mongols, living in the 12-13th century in Central and Central Asia, which gradually mixed with the local Turkic and Iranian population. At one time they were conquered by Genghis Khan when he was chasing a traitor.

Icon is very stretched out and cant see the details properly, it also doesn't match warcraft 3 in game well. Maybe zoom into his head area and make a portrait out of this drawing and then make it more warcraft efficient.

    Looks like it was traced from something else. Try redrawing from another angle, focus on the rider or riders upper torso, add more shading. Cartoon sytyles are fine for warcarft III but go too blend it into the style.
    If your new too drawing tablets I suggest drawing traditional art sketch, scanning it and tracing your own work instead, of was looks like a photo trace. Also the warcarft III art style blends in the linework with the shading a lot more and is almost non exsistant on most icons.
