Traditional Art with the Human Form</sup>

All creation, including the human body, is beautiful. The human form is one of most fascinating objects for many artists to work on and it has been used as a subject by traditional artists in so many different ways throughout history. The human body is able to express emotions through movement. Also, the face can speak without words and expresses intangible feelings that are difficult to quantify. It creates complex patterns and varying moods. The face changes to match the emotion of each moment.

Jeez, you must think I'm a total ingrate for not thanking you before now for including me in your article! I'm so sorry! Been away from dA too long, apparently. Gee, ya think?

Anyway, thank you SO MUCH for including one of my drawings in this stunning collection you've put together. :heart:

Really nice features, however the work "farfadet" by ~calirezo isn't traditional is actually a digital piece.
