Ak Kalpak by charcoalfeather Ak Kalpak by charcoalfeather
He's this guy [link] but because I am not consistent, he looks totally different. Oh yeah, he looks kind of girly too. And his hair is too long.

I just really like the hat--the ak kalpak of the Kirghiz--in this one. Kirghiz people, by the way, are from Kyrgyzstan (don't let the -stan suffix fool you; they don't have East Mediterranean/Nord-Indid/Irano-Afghan phenotypes like the peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan do) and were part of the USSR (as a result of Russian colonization in the 19th century, which was before Communism).

Just because...I didn't draw the kalpak in the first picture of him above, so I wanted to draw it.

Btw, if my school friends see this, don't you think he looks like Beijing Boy? I kind of based him off him...LOL they have a similar background.

Not girly at all... He just looks young.
How do you learn to colour so well??

Uh, I think this was coloured really poorly. Can't help you there, sorry! xD

I think I have failed to make him look Central Asian.

What about him looks girly? I don't see it.
I love the way you shaded the collar of his shirt, it reminds me of an old photograph :D The hat rocks as well xD

I was looking at this picture when I was drawing this picture: [link] lol I liked the pattern on his shirt so I based it partially on that.

lol, I don't know though. Which look do you prefer for him?
