“While women in precolonial Philippines were often designated to the venerable position of the babaylan, it was not an uncommon occurrence for them to pick up arms and become warriors.” - from the article:

I find this awesome and I thought Calyps might find this useful in his work.
Many thanks to Adelruna for sending me links to these Eastern and Middle-Eastern historical and semi-historical battle attire. I posted several and have set two or three aside for future use in the main blog. Really cool stuff.
Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: CONTOUR LINE
One of the most straight forward tip I have about Life Drawing. It kind of goes against what most life drawing instructors will tell you. The first thing you’ll hear is “Draw from the inside.” A contour line on a figure drawing is about the most superficial way to approach it BUT, it will help you tremendously at finding a clear silhouette. By the way, no one says you can’t slightly alter the silhouette you are looking at. If there’s a way to make it clearer or make a better statement, go for it. Drawing is about making decisions, not just copying what you’re seeing. The same way other techniques will help understand how the body functions, using a contour line as an exercise will help you find proportions, angles of the body and general appeal in your posing.
