Eyes On Me by 6SeaCat9 Eyes On Me by 6SeaCat9
Have a dancing Cleo, everybody! I figured that since she's an Egyptian based Digimon, then she should know at least one kind of Middle Eastern dance. So I did some research and discovered a type of dance called "Raqs Sharki", a type of Egyptian traditional dance that has been around for generations that was a type of belly-dance that featured a lot more movement in the arms and legs, and was sometimes used with a large scarf of veil.

Here's a good example of it, though this version is a bit modernized: www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4y1pY…)

It really seemed like the type of dance that Cleo would know, so I really tried to find good references to the movements of the dance... which was hard because the dancers were moving constantly (obviously) but eventually I found a few.

The lyrics in the picture are from Celine Dion's "Eyes on Me" which also has a sort of Middle Eastern sound to it, and it makes the song as catchy as all hell, so they were a huge inspiration for the picture too! :D Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

And just remember, Digi-boys, she's taken! ;p

Update
I added a background! :D

I like the effect in Celos' eyes in the last image. And I also like ancient Egyptian dances and culture.

I can also imagine Rattlemon would ask for Cleopamon to dance more often for only two real reasons:

1. So he can create a strobing light effect with his tail orb.

2. So he can make music with his scales.

Thanks!

And of course, Cleo would be happy to oblige! :D ...While Beelzemon sits in the corner blushing like an idiot... XD

And after the dance DemiDevimon would just openly mock him in good jest.

Trust me, it was hard to find good references that resembled the movements... but I managed it eventually!
