Back from Peru

Back from Peru with a new finished drawing and a refined sketch that I posted previously. The drawing is a poster for the University of the Arts annual Open House. The girl is the focus of the piece and the bid above her head is used to communicate that there's something special that separates her from the crowd she walks against. In the finish I want that bird to be like a jewel, that something that she has is beautiful.

The sketch is for my depiction of Virtue. She's lifted into the air, floating, cradling something precious to her heart. I definitely wanted her to be unconcerned with the viewer, unlike the depiction of Vice that this is paired with. Vice looks at the viewer, there's a bit of narcissism in that, but its counterpart is above that.
