In Ancient China The Feudal States Had A Position Called The Taishi, And They Were Responsible For Record Keeping, Astrology As Well As Fortune Telling.
Here, The Fortune Teller Is Performing His Rites. He Is Worried About His Tate.

The King Is Not A Very Good King.
He Likes Sycophants, And He Likes Women.

In Fact, He Likes Women So Much That He Married The Girl That Was Supposed To Be Wed To His Own Son.

The Good Tutor Of The Crown Prince Told The King That This Can Be Considered As Incest.
The King Responded To This With The Good Ol' Fashion Feudal Way.
Its Only Feudalism When You Are At The Bottom...

He Kinda Had To Grub Around For A Living For Several Years.

Fortunate For Him, The Host State That He Lived As A Fugitive Had Some Sort Of A Problem.
The King Had A Disgruntled Cousin. The Angry Cousin Thinks That He Should Be The King.

Everything Was Settled. The Disgruntled Cousin Becomes King, And Ex-Beggar Becomes Proud Man Standing On Castle Parapet...

!!! IMPORTANT !!!
I Wanted To Depict A Mongols Raiding A Settlement/Camp Of Another Mongol Tribe. This Artwork Has Many Flaws. I Want The Viewer To Know The Few Things Are Wrongly Depicted, As I Didnt Make My Research Well. Those Are:
The Entire Camp Outline Is Wrong, There Is No Defense That Has To Be Set Up.( For An Insight: Nomadic Mongols "Back In The Medieval War Times" The Entire Tribe Would Used Their Hundreds Of Carts To Make A Fence Circling Around The Camp - So The Enemy Horses Cant Come Through If There Is To Be A Sudden Attack. One Family Had Around At Least 2 To 3 Carts Minimum To Load Up Their Tent And Other Household Items. So One Tribe Was Made Of Up To 10+ Families. And That Made 200 Cards For A Tribe - Enough To Make A Fence Around The Camp)
Also The Shape And Size Of The Nomadic Tent (Ger) Is Not Very Accurate.
Other Than That, I Think Its Ok To End It Like This. I Also Didnt Like The View Point. 
I Actually Didnt Want To Put This Up In DA. But The Time I Spent Drawing It Gave Me No Choice. It Took Me Long. And Im A Slow Artist. LOL. And I Hope To Make A Remake Someday.

Hi, I love your art! I'm a zooarchaeologist who works in Mongolia and it's great to see some of your pieces bringing the Xiongnu and the Mongol warriors to life.

I'm also currently creating a fan expansion for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game and wondered if I could use your painting of the mounted archer (Attila?) to illustrate a card?

Obviously I'd give you full credit and provide a link back to the source.
