Oh really?!!!! haha, that's actually kind of cool and I'll take it as an awesome compliment. Mainly because I TOOK Fashion Design!! Right after I graduated from high school!! It was only a 6 month course, but 6 months non the less!!!
Nice! Well then I suppose its the training that shows! I took a life drawing course after high school and I think it really influenced my later stuff too...took the cartoony edge off (but my backgrounds got better)! :)
I have to admit, I hated it at first! There was a course devoted to still life and another devoted to figure drawing. I was so terrible at the still life course--at least a first--and the prof was pretty hard on me! But her prodding and my competitiveness ended up spurring me on and I surprised myself with how "tight" and detailed I was able to make my still life drawings! The figure drawing class was a blast from the start--after anatomy 101 we started drawing nudes from life, and that was a great deal of fun. We did gesture drawings and long poses--I think I liked the long poses best. That was so long ago though!
