30 seconds

We woke our asses up to do this at 9:00 in the morning.....
the teacher had a test for us
to draw 10 different periods clothing style within 30 seconds
And this is my 30 second creation
ps...Sorry the images are really off, but the teacher was taking away the "test" so I did a sloppy job of photographing it
