Dragoon Warrior Lore
The Dragoon Warriors are ancient feral women who inhabit exotic terrains such as underground caverns, mountain crests, misty lakes, and rolling sand dunes; anywhere far away from society where they can exist in blissful solitude. Their dragon blood makes them extremely territorial and greedy, hording the treasures they find. They often adorn themselves with lavish jewelry. Each of the warriors draws their power from one of the four elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Summoning these elements reflects in their outward appearance. Dragoons live three times the life span of a human. Their lastingness has given them a copious amount of time to master their own elemental magic, making them adept warriors. Despite their longevity, they are known to be short-tempered and easily thrown into a furious rage.
Should an outsider find their self within the Lair of a Dragoon, one of three things will occur: the Dragoon might toy with the visitor, amusing itself with a predatory game of cat-and-mouse. The Dragoon might also send them to acquire and deliver great wealth to the Dragoon in exchange for their life. However, if the season is right, the visitor might befall the most dangerous of fates; the Dragoon might take a mate.

why is make-up traditional art?

Traditional |trəˈdi sh ənl|
"adjective"
existing in or as part of a tradition; long-established
• produced, done, or used in accordance with tradition : a traditional fish soup.
• habitually done, used, or found : the traditional drinks in the clubhouse.
• (of a person or group) adhering to tradition, or to a particular tradition.

Makeup dates as far back Ancient Egypt over 3,000 years ago,
as for how it relates to Art?...

"the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting, sculpture, fabric, etc...
producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Painting:
~meant literally, is the practice of applying color to a surface (support) such as, e.g. paper, canvas, wood, glass, people, lacquer or concrete.

~Art is too diverse to have labels and I know it can get messy with categorizing for databases and all, but Ultimately, it just breaks down to the Expression of one's self..." ;)

"Cheers!" :ahoy:

also I think "non-traditional art" generally refers to digital works.

Absolutely Correct! :highfive:

"traditional" means Painting, Sculpture, Drawing, Pen, Ink, Printmaking, etc, like that...
"nontraditional" would be any kind with little or no past history, like "Conceptual","Computer Art",
"Video Art" and like that.

The difference between Traditional and Non-Traditional is simply a matter of following the "trade" rules
of an established Art technique or organization or not... Ultimately, all living beings follow a
inherent creative process, "tradition" is simply an acknowledgement of the experiences and methodologies
of our predecessors and a willingness to preserve their point of view.
~As Cited by: "Mark A. Gallegos, B.F.A."

So under the circumstances, The photography,(being digital) is Non-Traditional, but the Make-up & cosmetic work
is Traditional in reference to physical application. ;P

"Cheers!" :ahoy:
