Kashgar Khan by CanisAlbus Kashgar Khan by CanisAlbus
Kashgar, a Mongolian Taigan hound and the fearless and ferocious general of Chazaqiel's army. "Khan" is is a Central Asian title for a military ruler.

I stumbled upon this wonderful folk band called Egschiglen, which plays traditional Mongolian music (with real throat singing and morin khuur violins!). Inspiring stuff. Listen to yourself: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUDIZU….
If you know any bands who play music with similar traditional, sort of "ancient" feel and who feature old and/or unusual instruments in their songs, feel free to recommend them! I'd appreciate it a lot `v┤

Faber-Castell colored pencil and Staedtler pigment liner on cardboard.

the energy and motion in his pose is so fantastic, and I love the shape of his doggy face!

May I ask what the leggings are? I've seen them on a few of your drawings and would like to know if they are just artistic license or have actual historical reference.

I might put some on my dog.

Hey thanks for the music discovery ! =) I love this style too, I've a spotify playlist inspired by this kind of music, Egschiglem will go right in it ! If you are on spotify, feel free to explore it ! Toundra
By the way, I can give you some names : Yat-Kha, Hanggai, or Sainkho Namtchylak.

And your art is awesome ! I love the pose, the design, and I like how We can still see the sketch work behind the ink drawing ! =)

I like it! The anklet and bracelets are very tribal-seeming, and his slightly irate expression is very well done. :D

Ah, Kashgar! I adore him so much but there is so little art of him. Would be nice to see more of him. Perhaps even with Chazaqiel himself.

I was lucky to meet a Mongolian folk band last year on a medieval festival - unfortunately I can't remember the name. Wonderful and more than inspiring music <3
