Dance party #1 by Antarija Dance party #1 by Antarija
...
I swear this is not what I was after.
At first I just wanted to practice drawing some dynamic poses, and I thought that dancing is kinda dynamic so why not google up some refs?
Then I thought it would be too boring to just draw some poses. I decided to make them pretty. Try out some designs, hair-cuts and just to torment Khail a bit.
Well.
That escalated quickly :I
Though the bastard looks quite good no matter what I've done to him (screw you, you 2D character, screw you) and it got a bit boring with just him around.

And then a lot of kidnapping happened :dummy:


Featuring:
1. Bellydancer Khail - actually, that was the first one of those, I wanted to make him uncomfortable. IT DIDN'T WORK DAMNIT.
2. Some Bollywood dance.
3. Georgian dancer - Kazbeguri dance (probably...?). I think that in real world Khail would be from Georgia/Croatia/Hungary or something. And all georgian dances are simply awesome :> (I can't dance at all and I know nothing about it but those are a real fun to watch)
4. :iconraineyj: 's Evangeline in the Kekkai Sensen dance. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
5. :iconskadierendra: 's Maki in some kind of street dance.
6. Breakdance. Because why the hell not, it's canon now, anyway.
7. Samba. Ilikefeathers
8. ... Figure skating is also a dance, ok?! \;w;/
9.  Khail and Airie  (the black-haired maid) in tango.
10. Fan-dancer.
11. :iconyokufo: 's Cocoa doing some kind of mafioso-dance with his fedora :>
12. :iconbilliam-x: 's Will and Almonde in... rumba? It was rumba, wasn't it? I believe Almonde likes dresses, so it would be a shame not to put her in one here~
13. :icondejasquietplace: 's Elli and Belle in fox trot. Ellie's shirt was too small, who knew?
14. Khail and Narissa (the blonde-haired maid) in salsa.
15. Khail and Lyra (the small, red-haired maid) in... ok, I have no idea what was that suppposed to be.  Some kind of ballroom dance.
16. Khail and Arie doing... I don't know, and I don't want to know. Street dance?
17. Asahi - the most beautiful Swanna in whole Unova. That's what happens when those four hold a drinking contest.
18. Khail doing a pole dance. He lost a bet. You better forget what you saw.
19. Gavil's doing hula and he's already dead inside. (what he says is a quote from polish classical literature, it's hard to translate... Basically it means something like " stop it already, end my shame" or something.)
20. Azil's another Swanna and he's proud of it, because it was his Chieftain's order and Chieftain's orders can't be wrong. Baka. (though I think I broke his spine...)


Sorry guys, for draging your kids into this. But I'm not going to stop! There's a lot more to come (the file just got too big). Beware. Noone is safe.


Oh, and if you have any suggestions, feel free to share it. ;]

Well, it was supposed to be a human anatomy/pose training thing (but it went out of control a bit xD) If I added Pokemon in weird poses I don't think it would have anything to do with a correct anatomy anymore : P

Hey, I've been really wondering: What to you use as inspiration for your dance poses? Are you a dancer yourself by any chance, or do you browse on Google for traditional dances?

Well, I hope you're not as much of a narcissist as he is. xD I know he has a sweet spot somewhere in there, but I hate arrogance.

Antarija Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Definitely not xD In this we're nothing alike. To be honest, if he existed in the real world I'd probably be the one to hate him the most for that xD
 But we can both be pretty sarcastic at times.

Sarcasm is a form of inteligence, although the poorest of them all in my book. xD
I'm making a character whose similar to yours in that he is arrogant and morally gray.

So you wanted to make him feel umcomfortable in 1, but he was dealing with it. And he is still laughing at you in 2! hahahaha xD
On the other hand, I think you get it in 8 XD He looks so pissed of xD
Anyway, awesome outfits and poses! The anatomy is just perfect! :D

He kept on laughing at me for days, that bastard...! But it's ok, he's pretty, they have their rights...

Yup! Maybe he doesn't like tight clothes. Or he just knew there's that one show this season that he'd totally despised in every way possible xD

Thank you! : D

These are some fabulous poses and dances you drew, so good and beautiful.

8. Not going to argue with someone with blades on his feet.
11. "I was just hit by a smooth criminal".
12. SPOILERS! Seriously you should be careful with these.
16. No they will not get a room.
17. I think Asahi is the one with the broken back seriously I think he just folded in two.
18. NEVER!!!
19. No this is his punishment for not entering team plasma hideout, do he must until all the women (and man) faint from the sexy.

Wait there's more I don't know I should be scared or excited.

Psst, if you're looking for suggestions, ever thought of fire dancing? (www.pinterest.com/pin/10527171…) I know of a couple of other Polynesian dances if you're interested in those, but fire dancing's my favorite lol

T-Thank you so much! So much praising will get to my head xD

Ah, how could I forget about this one?! This is basically one of the very few dances I saw and thought it's really cool! Thanks! I'll use this one for sure : D  And if you know more of those, I'll be grateful to hear more~

Oho, then brace yourself~ *deep inhale*

Well, for starters we've got Hula. There are many types of hula, but the most recognizable forms are Hula 'Auana ("Modern" Hula), which has modern music and costumes and the stereotypical sway-ey/flow-ey motions you think of when you think hula. Then there's Hula Kahiko ("Traditional" Hula), which has the grass skirt outfits that poor Gavil's wearing, chanting, and traditional instruments. This form of hula is a lot more vigorous and faster-paced.

If we go to Samoa, we've got a handful of dances like Fa'ataupati (or the "Samoan Slap Dance"), which is an all male dance where the guys, well, slap each themselves, chant, and jump around. It's as hilarious as it sounds, but is pretty cool at the same time, since the guys are pulling off a bunch of acrobatic stunts. 

Then in Tahiti we've got Tamure. This dance has distinct male and female roles, but they do the same thing: SHAKE IT!! Guys shake their legs, whereas girls shake their hips (which looks a LOT like twerking since girls tend to wear loose, bushy, bouncy skirts with grass fiber accents on their heads or shoulders that... accentuate the shaking).

Poi Ball Dancing is another popular form of dance where dancers swing weighted balls on a rope around to chants or music, and has a really cool modern look (modern troupes sometimes use glowing balls and string, kinda like the ones people use at raves). 

And then we've got fire dancing, like I talked about earlier, which has Samoan roots. But instead of using wooden staves, did you know that the first dancers used Maori knives or machetes? (They're called Fire Knives or Siva Afi) If you make Khail go down this route, PLEASE have him dance with either Kiawe or Alolan Marowaks, lol

Is this enough to go off of? XD

Woah, you really do know a lot about those. I'm impressed! And they all look great! I need to torture more characters with grassy-skirts it seems! > : D
Oh, and I even saw Fire Knives. I thought it's the same thing as normal "fire-dancers" since performers just swiched between knives, sticks, some balls on chains or whatever that was ect.
( why not both? xD he's going this route for sure)

I've been staring at this for hours and I'm actually speechless because the anatomy and fashion is just SO PERFECT??? I'm honored my douche son and pin-cushion child snuck their way into this fabulous party. Speaking of which, ALMONDE'S DRESS. She certainly feels a lot older now (which is good because she's gonna evolve soon and I still need to say goodbye to the little girl we're all used to lol). 

AGAIN THESE POSES. Damn good job Anna! Clap
