Hipbone Nairong on 6 and 13 Nov
The result of two Tuesday evenings sketching the same model (Nairong) in the same pose, done from perspective points about 180 degrees apart.

Hipbone found 6 Nov 2018
It's Tuesday, must be another evening at Hipbone Studio,...found this in a seldom used sketch book (numerous ones here and there in my office/drawing room).  Have no idea who the model is or when it was done, other than this year.  
Another evening of fun and graphite smudges.

Halloween Graphite Hipbone 30 min 06
There was much more to this costume than I've sketched, but I ran out of time and energy to work any faster.
A most enjoyable evening was had by all, including a variety of treats -- candy snacks for the children of every age, no matter how old.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
A scientist, engineer, and artist. Drawing is an essential tool for anyone in the engineering/science business.
Completely self taught, haven't had any instruction since the 3rd or 4th grade and that was more than 60 years ago. However, I have enjoyed drawing from the time I could hold a crayon, moreover, my father actively supported and encouraged my drawing (but did not push me to follow any particular career path).
Interests
There seems to be a considerable difference in the mental process of generating a piece of artwork depending on the purpose of the art:  "artsy" art where the artwork itself is the end product; or "toolish" art where the art is a tool used in making an object (designing and machining a new shape of gear for example, or investigating how things work -- heat loss of your coffee in a new design of a coffee cup).
It would seem that the artsy art process is an expression, primarily, of emotions, feelings and personal thoughts.  This makes the experience of producing a piece of artsy art a fairly cathartic process.  At the other end of the spectrum is "toolish" art (I made up the word) where the artist (usually an engineer, scientist or person of similar interests and training) uses artwork (any graphic image) as a tool to make or investigate real objects or events.  Making a model of an imaginary character is still in the artsy category as it has no counterpart in reality (where the performance of things can be tested and analyzed).
The idea of art as a tool might be analogous to the role of paper plates and bowls on a picnic, along with the disposable flatware.  The pleasure of a picnic meal is the end product and the tools (disposable paper utensils) are merely a convenience.  After the event the tools are not kept or put on display.

The performance measure of most of engineering is "maximum output for a minimum input."  Terms such as "miles per gallon" for your car are part of our common evaluation of performance of cars -- more is better.  Which means the car can travel farther on a minimum input of gasoline.  The styling of a car is only secondarily considered as part of improving this performance criteria.  The shape of cars is evaluated largely as an artsy art object -- how it looks.

To grasp this range of this spectrum of artsy art to toolish art over the next few days or weeks I'll illustrate the idea with a challenge to design the most efficient carrier possible to transporting a sphere and a cone together at the same time.

Thank you for the compliment.
Might very well say the same of your artwork as well. You have a most interesting visage, sensuous, confident, ,... have been looking at your pictures and deciding which one to use as a muse for sketching. I will send what I do to you first for your approval before posting anything.
