Today, I wanted to review so mythological paintings. I am using the myth term broadly. It saves the the trouble of putting on the title Greek and Roman paintings. In any case, this first painting shows the Queen Zenobie. She is well known for nearly defeating the Romans. In this painting, her luck had finally run out. She had tried running away from the Romans. She nearly drowned in the river side. Here, the shepherds are taking care of her. It is interesting the differences in attires between the Queen and the shepherds. In any case, this lovely painting by Bouguereau deserves 5 stars ratings.

In this painting, we see Pandora. She has her little golden box. Her expression looks very frightened. She has just opened her box. This cutie deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is very simply. It focuses on the lovely veil of this girl. Within it, we see a cute girl. Beside her, we see some blue flowers. Thinking about it, that odd green background I have seen it like 100 different times. Its no wonder Bouguereu did so many paintings. He found a way to get backgrounds out of the way quickly. In any case, this lovely Greek painting by Bouguereau deserves 5 stars ratings.
The title in this painting means the Ideal. Above, we see the ideal couple, in the ideal scenery. Both do look cute together. The girl is pocking the guy with a grass string. It seems to be bothering him. Beside the guy, we see a harp. This shows that he is a poet. In any case, this lovely painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau deserves 5 stars ratings.
Above, we see two personifications. One is of art and the other is literature. The one that represents art is painting. The one that stands for literature has a harp and a scroll. Behind them, we see a Greek city. In any case, this lovely painting by Bouguereau deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see the blind poet Homer. His seeing guide is trying to help him escape from the wild dogs. As for Homer, he seems to be focused on his visions of the world.

In any case, this last featured mythological painting deserves 5 stars rating. I hope that you liked this William Adolphe Bouguereau art review.
Today, I wanted to review the Sister Act movies. Both featured the hilarious actress Whoopi Goldberg. She play the singer Dolores. The movie starts with Dolores at school. She is making many pranks as a little girl in her Catholic school. Her teacher warns her where she will end up if she keeps up that attitude. It turns out that the nun was prophetic about Dolorers's future. She did ended up singing in a random club in Las Vegas.
Long story short, Dolores' lover was a criminal. By accident, she witnessed a crime. She was forced to go into witness protection in a nunnery. While there, Dolores became Sister Mary Clarence. Once again, she was forced to relive the whole Catholic Nun thing. In order to pass the time, her superior sent her to the choir. She was able to make them sing better.
In the second movie, Dolores was contacted by her nun friends. She had become famous via her "Sister Act" show. That day her friends asked her to go see the mother superior. She was in desperate need. The mother superior wanted Dolores to teach music to some high school students. Once again, Dolores had to become a nun. Like before, she made her miracle happen. A lot of other things happened. However, I do not want to spoil the endings.
What I liked best about both movies where the songs. They were really something else. As usual, the best songs where the last ones. In the second movie, I liked better the classical version of "Ode to Joy". I studied the song, in my art class. It is actually about the celebration of the creativity of men. Originally, it was not a religious song. In any case, both great movies deserve 5 stars rating. I recommend it to all music lovers.
Good For Nothing is a very odd western movie. The plot is very simple. It is about a murderous cowboy who want to sleep with a British lady he kidnapped. The lady was traveling west to her family's plantation. On the way, this cowboy shot her escorts and took her with him. He tried to sleep with her, however, his dick had "broken".
The rest of the movie focused on him searching for a cure for his broken dick. Every time he found a doctor, he would recommend him to another. On the way, he slew the sheriff of a town who tried to get his girl. For the rest of the movie the cowboy and his girl were hunted down. I found hilarious the Chinese doctor. He tried acupuncture on the cowboy's dick. Naturally, it did not work.
Eventually, the cowboy made his way to the Indian doctor. What was cute about the movie is that along the way, the reason why his dick broke became clear to the watcher. The cowboy had fallen in love with the refined British lady. As such, he could not bring himself to sleep with her against her will. This odd romantic comedy deserves 5 stars rating. I recommend it to all western movie lovers.
A few months ago, I got around to watching the Queen Elizabeth movie. I knew her history rather well. However, that still did not stopped me from enjoying the movie. Like we all know, Queen Elizabeth defeated the Spanish armada and fixed the British economy. Her most important innovation was the decapitation of her cousin Mary Stuart.
That event was very important. It served as premise for the decapitation of the French monarchs, during the French Revolution. Frankly, I found this movie to be a bit too pro British. I read Mary Stuart's autobiography. How she ended up prisoner of her cousin was a due to a big misunderstanding... Then again, the murder of her husband was a bit too problematic.
Yet, the real reason she was prisoner was because her son wanted to inherit the throne. He sold his mother out to Queen Elizabeth. Mary Stuart was indeed plotting against her cousin. However, she was doing so because she feared for her life. It is natural for you to plot against those who keep you captive. Plus, she was in her very right to kill her husband. After all, during those days, Kings and Queens were above the law.
It was Queen Elizabeth who brought them down to the mundane world. In a way, she single handily caused the events that destroyed monarchy as we know it. Another interesting fact, that was omitted in the movie, was the story of Mary Stuart's pet dog. When she was taken to be decapitated, her dogie followed her along. He was bathed in his owner's blood. When they tried to take her head, the bloody puppy came out frightened. It was a very gory sight.
Another interesting detail, was that her hair turned completely white overnight. When her head fell, the executioners saw that she had been wearing a wig. It was a real bummer. One last important detail was that Mary Stuart was a cute blondy. She was also infinitely more beautiful then Elizabeth. In this movie, they made her uglier to make Queen Elizabeth shine.
Those were the few things that I did not like about the movie. Thinking about it, this was a movie that glorified Queen Elizabeth. It makes sense that the writer would tweet the facts in her favor. She did have a lot more half lovers. The reason why she did not have a guy were two folds. First, she had an odd disease around the leg. She had inherited from her father, Henry the 8th. The second reason is that if she got man she would loose all her powers.
During her early childhood, she was kicked out of her palace because she was not a man. She feared that if she got a husband, she would end up like her mother. If you think about it, she was not very far from the truth. Movie drama wise, I liked her relationship with the pirate. My family is a direct descendant from those pirates. It was cute how the movie showed that the Queen was living through her attendant.
She liked to make her maid dance with the man she liked. The ending of the movie was pretty epic. It is interesting how they orchestrated the ocean battle. The storm was a lovely detail. Since then, everyone thought that the Queen could summon up storms at will. This only furthered color the Spanish's opinions of the Queen.
Another thing that I liked about the movie where the Queen's dresses. She compensated her ugliness with fancy dresses. She had like a 1000 elaborated dresses. That is a lot of dresses even for this day and age. They included the fancy jewelry that went along with them. I also like the Queen's fancy silver armor. I think that is everything worth mentioning about the movie. Truly, it is a 5 stars worthy historical movie.
Today, I wanted to review some cute Cupid paintings. They were all made by the classical painting William Adolphe Bouguereau. The first painting shows Persephone returning from the Underworld. An army of Cupids are helping her come to life. All around her, flowers are sprouting. This is truly a lovely vision of spring. In any case, this lovely painting by Bouguereau deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see Cupid or Amour flying up with his wife. He is taking her to meet Zeus to make her a goddess. She looks very cute in her sleep. This lovely painting by Bouguereau deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see Psyche getting kidnapped by Cupid while she slept. Most Greek romances start like that. Pysche has her hand to her heart. She seems to be having a lovely dream. This cute couple deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see Cupid hugging his cute wife. She was in the meadow gathering flowers when she first met Cupid. In this painting, Cupid had fairy wings instead of angel wings.

The Oreads are a type of mountain nymph. They differed depending on the mountains they lived. They were usually associated with Artemis because she liked to hunt in those regions.

In any case, this lovely painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau deserves 5 stars rating.

She is called the lost star because she was the first star that Greek astronomers saw disappear. According to legends, she went to Underworld to be with her dead mortal lovers.

This last cute painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau deserves 5 stars rating. I hope that you like this art review a lot. I still do not know what artist I will review in the near future. For now, I think I will go back to reviewing movies.
Today, I wanted to review "The best exotic marigold hotel". I want to review the movie, not the hotel. A few weeks ago, I got around to watching the movie. I mostly liked it because it had my two favorite actresses. The first one is Judi Dench, the boss of James Bond. In this movie, she played a newly widowed woman. The second actress that I liked is Maggie Smith, from like a billion movies that I have watched. In this movie, she played an ex housekeeper that was fired after she trained her replacement.
In any case, these two maidens along with another group of elderly folks saw an add on the internet. The website promised a vision of an Indian hotel dedicated to the elderly. When they arrived, to the hotel they saw that it was just a vision. The movie itself is about coping with old age. The group of elderly folks there must deal with many different problems.
On the meantime, they observe the wonders of India. Interesting enough, this movie did more emphasis on the modern India. The owner of the hotel, Sunny, had problems with his mother. He wanted to marry the girl he loved, not his approved bride. An interesting scene was when one of the old ladies visited a club. She told the owner that she deserved a discount because she was royalty.
Interesting enough, the owner knew that the Queen she was pretending to be had been dead for 20 years. That scene shows you that most tourists think the Hindi people as fools. Another interesting scene was when Maggie Smith spoke to an Untouchable maid. The girl was so happy that she acknowledge her existence that she invited Maggie to dinner. This scene showed you another dark side to the Hindu society.
The final dark side shown in this movie was the fate of gay men in Hindu society. One of the old men in the group, had returned to India to seek out his old lover boy. He was wondering what became of his life. When he was young they were found out. Since he was British, his family went easy on him. However, his Hindu lover lost everything. His family was forced to move to hide their shame.
In a society ruled by family and tradition, their love was forbidden. Overall, the movie focuses on the hotel and how it changed the life of those who visited it. In a way, the hotel serves as a metaphor for India. Tourist come there expecting to see something beautiful. However, when they arrive they are shocked to see the advent poverty and discrimination. Despite it's harsh theme, the ending is rather pretty and heartwarming. It leaves you feeling good. Truly, "The best exotic marigold hotel" deserves 5 stars rating. I recommend it to all who like comedies.
Juan of the Dead or Juan de lost Muertos is the Cuban answer to Shaun of the Dead. Like that comedy, it is the tale of an average Joe's fight against the zombies. The tale begins with Juan and his friend fishing. Juan is the narrator of the story. He describes how he is a survivor. He survived two wars, the special period and what followed. For those that do not know, the Special period was a time when the food in Cuba was seriously rationed.
Through the movie, he talks about how he is a survivor. He says that all he needs is a chance to get ahead. Anyhow, that day this boat gets attacked by an escaped prisoner. His friend Lazaro harpoons the guy. It turns out that the convict was actually a zombie. However, they have never dealt with a zombie. Thus, they thought they had murdered someone. They left the dead zombie thing sink to the bottom of the ocean.
The second zombie they encountered it in an old lady's house. She called them because her husband was dead. When they arrived, the old man was walking. She thought it was a miracle because he had not walked in a long time. He started attacking Juan and then Lozero harpooned the guy. The harpoon went through the old man's belly and accidentally struck the old lady. She died on the spot.
The scene that followed was hilarious. Naturally, the zombie did not die from being harpooned in the belly. They thought that the old guy was possessed by the devil. They tried to exorcise him. When it did not work, they tried a wooden stake. Eventually, striking the head worked. Days later, more zombies attacks were reported on TV. However, the Castro government called the zombies dissidents. They said that such cannibalism attacks was a plot of the U.S. to destroy Cuba.
The next night Juan and Lorenzo got together with La China and his cousin. Together, they started discussing about the cannibalism of the dissidents. That very night the a head member of the C.D.R. ( one of the bureaucratic communist heads) got attacked by a zombie. They were marveled at the strength of the dissidents. They wondered what the Americans were feeding them.
Eventually, the entire city got full of zombies. However, to Juan the place still looked the same. Long story short, Juan decides to take advantage of the situation. He starts a zombie or dissident killing business with his friends. The ending of the movie is pretty cool. Overall, this movie is a metaphor to what is happening in Cuba. Food is still badly ration. Its gotten to a point that most Cubans only have their neighbors for food.
The whole "We kill your Loved Ones" slogan of Juan's zombie business is another metaphor. In Cuba, most youngsters are hoping that their parents die to inherit their things. Death is the only way for Cubans to advance in the bureaucratic dictatorship they live in.
Anyhow, my favorite part was when Juan and his crew was saved by a gringo. The American was an expert at killing zombies. Using his car, he decapitated an army of them. The problem was that Juan had forgotten most of the English he had learned at school. What was funny was the way the gringo spoke. He said he wanted to help them with their zombie problems because God told him to.
The most hilarious part of the movie was when Juan's crew visited a hotel. The Italian tourists and the women they had hired had become zombies. The owner had contacted Juan to clean up the place. When they came down they got surrounded. Juan said," How can this get any worse?" In that moment, there was a blackout. They were forced to fight the army of zombies in utter darkness. Like you all know, Cuba has a lot of roaring blackouts. That scene reminded the viewers of that sad fact.
Another interesting scene was the seaside zombie battle. Jaun saw that the Cuban waters were full of zombies of those who had tried to leave Cuba. It was a very creepy sight. For being a zombie comedy, it touched a lot of political subjects. I recommend it to all zombie movie fans. The zombie goriness and the effects are pretty cool. The parodied fighting styles were also great. Truly, Juan of the Dead or Juan de los Muertos deserves 5 stars rating.
A few days ago, I watched a very funny horror comedy. It was a film made in Spain. Anyhow, the movie starts with a werewolf legend. An evil rich chick wanted a kid. Since her husband was not providing it for her, she tried other men. Eventually, a gypsy clan visited her home. She fell in love with one of them and forced him to bear her son. To hide the rumor that her son was a bastard, she butchered the entire gypsy clan.
When she went to kill the wife of the gypsy man who had bore her a son, the gypsy woman cursed her. Thus, when the kid turned 10 he became a werewolf that slew his own mother. The movie begins afterwards. The main character is a failed writer with drinking problems. The only book he ever published was 500 page of describing a beer bottle.
Anyhow, his distant family in rural Arga asked him come home. They wanted to honor him for being a writer. Early on, some weird things occur. Eventually, his publicist came to his house to question him about his new book. That day an angry mob came to his mansion and knocked both of them out. When the main guy awoke, he saw that he was crucified. They wanted to feed him and his friend to the werewolf to break the curse.
After he was dropped into the pit of the werewolf the movie got more hilarious. The werewolves were a bit cheap looking. However, the gore was just right. The ending truly was hilarious. However, half the cast had to die to reach that ending. My favorite part was when the dogie ate his owner's cooked finger. Anyhow, the movie is about superstitious. It makes fon of super religious Catholics that live in rural towns. In any case, Los Lobos de Arga deserves 5 stars rating.
A few months years ago, I watched the Last Supper. It is a Cuban colonial parody of Jesus's last Supper. One day, a colonial master decided to try a little experiment. He choose 12 slaves to have a Supper with him. Via example, he wanted to teach them a Catholicism. He chose as his Judas a slave that had tried to escape 7 times, and failed.
The dinner was pretty peachy and the ending pretty bloody. This movie brings to light the contradictions between Catholicism and slave society. The Catholics had to remake their religion in order to make it ok to enslave other men. My favorite part was when Judas said his lines. He pretended to be asleep or quiet for most of the party.
However, when his master slept. He spoke as thus. He told the Yoruba story of the creation of truth and lies. Oludumare, the creator made truth pretty strong and lie weak. He felt sorry for the lie and thus he gave him a machete. One day, the lie decapitated the truth. The truth searched for his head and found the lie. He took the lie's head and now the truth walks with the head of the lie.
He argued how the truth and the lies are all mixed up. He warned them against taking their master's teachings seriously. They may sound like the truth, however, they are used to excuse lies. In any case, the Last Super is a 5 stars worthy old Cuban movie. I recommend it to all who have a taste for the colonial period.
Today, I wanted to review one of my favorite fantasy books. This one is called Sabriel. It is the story of a cool necromancer chick. The world she lives in is half science, half magical. Science does not work beyond the borders. Anyhow, one day Sabriel travels to the magical half to try to save her father. There she masters her necromancer powers. The story line is not too complicated. What I liked best was the necromancy, with the bells, the ghost cat and the runeblade.
The eight gates scenes were pretty creepy. Nix painted a proper vision of the other life. Frankly, it is no wonder the dead there refuse to stay dead. The black cat was pretty odd. It is a bummer what necromancers do with the greater undead. The only thing that I did not like about the book was its two sequels. Frankly, it seemed like the book was going to end with Sabriel. Her final battle was really something else. It was very well described.
The second part was about her distant younger sister. She was a failed seer who wanted to kill herself. You know, nothing too complicated. Frankly, she was a terrible main character. Plus, her romantic interest was her half cousin. Its a pity Nix dedicated the last two books to that chick. If I was him, I would have stayed with Sabriel. She was a cooler main character. For this reason, only the first book of the Abhorsen saga is 5 stars worthy. Don't bother reading the other two books. They suck!!
"The Day after Tomorrow" is my favorite Storm movie. To start the review, I will tell you a bit about the plot. The main character is a scientist who predicted a new ice age. One day, his predictions start coming true. All over the world, massive storms start surfacing. The problem is that the guy who can do something about it hates his guts. Needless to say, he choose a bad time to make enemies of the Vice President.
Long story short, a lot of people died because of the Vice President's pride. Eventually, they do listen to to the scientist. By then, it is too late for half the U.S. population. They must wait for the mega storm to pass. To make matters worse, the scientist's son is stuck in New York. The eye of the storm will pass by there. I think that is enough information on the plot.
For being a movie about climate change, it certainly makes a point. My favorite storm scene took place in California. There they had a series of jumbo tornadoes. It was funny that only the cleaning guy survive. He did not even noticed that a tornado had passed by the building he worked at. Out of the blue, the lights went out. He opened the only door that seemed to have light. When he opened it, he saw that a whole piece of the building had flown away.
Another scene that I liked involved the book burning scene in the library. The kids had to burn books to keep warm. They were aided by the librarian. He complained when the girl tried to burn Nietzsche's books. He said he was the most important 19th century writer. The girl argued that he was a misogynist pig, who was in love with his sister. He her rebuked, by stating the Nietzsche did not hate women... Although, he did admit that Nietzsche was in love with his sister.
Long story short, they found an entire section full of law books, with precedents. They figured that they were useless now that the world was ending. Speaking of books, it was cute that the librarian wanted to protect the Bible. He did not protect it out of piety. You see, the Bible he protected was one of the first Bibles ever printed, with the printing press. It stood as a symbol of the start of the modern era.
Overall, it was interesting food for thought. The last interesting detail was that only the Northern Countries got affected by the jumbo storms. They were forced to kiss up to the third world countries in order to survive. Boy, the creator of this movie had a sick sense of humor. In any case, "The Day After Tomorrow" deserves 5 stars rating.
The Wild Wild West is one of my favorite Western movies. I like it because of the acting of Will Smith. There he plays a gun ho' government agent, names James West. He is the kind of man who shoots first and ask questions later. One day, he gets paired up with a scientist/ agent,named Artemus Gordon, who is into fancy gadgets. Together, they make an amassing duel... when they are not at each other's throats.
Anyhow, they were hired to investigate Loveless. Loveless had been kidnapping scientists to build something amassing. Around the middle of the movie, we see what Loveless was truly building. What I like best were the odd anachronistic technologies. They were advanced in their own unique retro fashion. Needless to say, we saw some high tech stuff all powered by Steam and hydraulics.
My favorite part of the movie was the final battle between West and a Loveless. It was a bummer how Loveless had made himself spider clockwork legs. The pity is that once the gasoline ran out, he was as defenseless as a sheep. Speaking of technology, some items like the Tank and the Machine gun did truly exist at the time. They were relics of the civil war. They never got used because the war ended early.
Anyhow, the Tank was made by the North and the Machine Gun was made by the south. Putting both together, it seems that both were evenly matched. It is a good thing that the war ended before things went overboard. In any case, the Wild Wild West movie deserves 5 stars rating. I recommend it to all fans of Will Smith.
A few days ago, Corrine Federer was playing around with her camera. She was testing out its high dynamic range features. To make this feature work, she had to take several photos at different levels of exposure. This means that she messed around with the lenses to control how much light it recorded. To make those photos work, she had to take at least 3 photos of the castle.
Then, she must overlap the images to get all the colors. Some time passed before she checked out the photos she took. Among the photos, she saw a weird S shaped fin. She thought it was a UFO because she did not heard any missiles being deployed. Anyhow, she used her software to zoom in enough to reveal the photo above.
According to Ben Hansen from the Syfy channel, the photos were not faked. However, he does not believe that it is a UFO. He thinks that a bug probably got in front of the lenses. Looking at the photo, I have my doubts. I seen UFOs of that style. They have been doing the odd fin thing these days. Needless to say, ET's technology has gone a long's way from the flying saucer.
Others say the usual excuse. You know that her UFO was an airplane, a missile test or a weather balloon. However, Federer still believes that it was a UFO. I also believe that it is a UFO. They have a knack for showing up in deserted areas.
Today, I wanted to review the amassing artwork of Shay Aaron. She is a sculptor from Israel. She specializes in making tiny food sculptures. She also turns some of her sculptures into jewelry. From her huge food sample of works, I choose these 26 photos to feature in here. They are all 5 stars worthy. I hope that you liked these features a lot. The first sculpture shows you a set of making noodles with all ingredients. For comparison purposes, Aaron added a penny to the photo.

A few says ago, I watched the Carrie movie. I cannot say which Carrie movie I watched. It has like a million versions, each one bloodier than the last. I think it was the 2002 version. Carrie is one of Steven King's horror movie classic. It is about a shy girl with telekinesis powers. Carrie has a very overprotective, hyper religious mother. She has been raising Carrie to be a saint. Carrie resents her mother's rearing.
Deep down she wishes to live her own life. Anyhow, the story is told from the testimonies of people who knew Carrie. Each person sheds some light to what happened at prom night. The biggest bummer is how Carrie's friend knew her childhood flashback. When Carrie was small she had an outburst of psychic powers. She went as far as calling forth meteors.
You see, her mother had seen Carrie talking to her neighbor. She hated her neighbor because she liked to suntan herself without a shirt. She thought that her neighbor was sinful. Many a times she prayed that her Carrie would not grow "dirty pillows". That day Carrie's mother locked her up in her prayer closet. All the while, Carrie had a psychic fit. Since then, she did not display any telekinesis powers. The day she had her first period her psychic powers started acting up again.
Her mother had forbidden her to take health class. Thus, she did not know what was happening to her body. She thought she was dying. To make matters worse, it happened in the girls locker room while she was bathing. Her peers mercilessly started laughing at her. They chanted, "First Period!"From that point in the story on, Carrie's bullies went further and further. It culminated in their final prank in Prom Night.
Needless to say, the movie is a countdown toward Prom Night. It hints at the tragedy that is about to befall everyone for pushing Carrie too far. The ending is a bloody massacre. It is interesting that the movie was pretty typical, until Carrie started gaining some control over her powers.
The moral of the story is timeless. It shows you the deadly consequences of bulling someone. You may never know if that person might go crazy on you. In the end, the bullies created the instrument of their own demise. Truly, Carrie is a 5 stars worthy movie. I recommend this cautionary tale to all bullies.
A few months ago, I checked out the 9 Heads Fashion book. I found it to be very useful. This book covers modern day fashion. It shows you all the latest trends. The first chapters focuses on drawing the 9 heads croquis. In the fashion world, it is fashionable for the sketch croquis to have 9 heads proportions. His entire body must be at least 9 heads long. This gives a long, elegant look.
Interesting enough, the 9 heads croquis is simply an ideal form. Somehow, in the real world, they manage to create women with the 9 heads proportions. This is obviously an unnatural form. Regardless, the skinny dummy is only for fashionable drawings. It does not represent a real woman. The writer of the book made lots of emphasis on that.
Anyhow, the rest of the book focused on dress design. It gave you an entire list of flats for you to create your own style. The flats had no fancy colors or patterns. The fabrics are a trademark of fashion artist. Speaking of which, this book shows you a few sample works of several fashionable artists. One of the featured artists focused on baby clothing. They were all pretty cute.
This book has a few specialized chapters. The first chapter focused on men's fashion. Men's tuxedo do not require many pages. All fashion books agree that men's fashion is lame and unimaginative. There is very limited room for creativity. Taking female fashion into consideration, most men attires cannot be too flamboyant without looking too girly girl. Anyhow, they showed you a few fashionable tuxedos, sports wear and casual wear.
The second special chapter focused on children's wear. They show you that children do not need the 9 heads proportions. They must look like regular children. The baby fashion croquis is pretty simple and meant to look like a regular babe. Their attires must be made small and cute. In this section, they also show you how to draw a pregnant 9 heads dummy. They show you how draw fashionable clothing for women with child.
The last special chapter focused on wedding dresses. Wedding dresses are a big deal in the fashion industry. The sample dresses were elegant and flamboyant. Others had pretty odd designs. Overall, this 9 heads fashion book was very useful. I recommend it to all who wish to learn how to draw fashion. I must warn you the book is like 100 bucks. The earlier editions are a bit cheaper. The third edition is only 30 bucks, used. In any case, 9 heads deserves 5 stars rating.
