These sketches and paintings were from a Costume Rendering Class I took in the Drama department of my university. It was different from all the other figure drawing classes I've taken because the instructor looked at the models as characters rather than just figures. She didn't just excel in one style and medium and stuck with it on every project. Instead, she stressed the importance of choosing the right medium and style to portray the "character" in the most suitable manner.
And.... this is a painting I did a while ago for an Aviation Art Contest. The theme was "Air Sports and Nature in Harmony"
