I wanted to call this The Ballerina Jig, but she's not... dancing... a jig. It just happens to be the song I am listening to and it is so cute. I'll do an Irish dancer later to get that out. I need to do more Irish dancers, anyway, because I'm one of them. Or I was before I went to college and stopped taking lessons two years ago.


This is Claire again. I'm getting back to my old standards! Except that I'm not. I'm just going to draw more Claire. I miss that pretty little girl. I've drawn her grandmother and great grandmother loads lately.

Chappaxx's avatar
You know something, I so envy you drawing skills to draw Ballet dancers.
KaptainKlancy's avatar
Did you use to do ballet as well? Or do you just look at ballerinas for anatomy?
hilarity's avatar
I've taken ballet off and on, but I'd never consider myself a ballet dancer, no. I had a lot of friends who were, which was what got me interested in the form. I look at lots and lots of ballerinas all the time. Every day. DVDs, books, eeeeeeeverything I can get my grubby little hands on.
KaptainKlancy's avatar
Haha, nice. I was just wondering, because you always get the anatomy so incredible accurate!

Thank you! And she thanks you, too. And me. Because I'm kind to her posture and extension and turn out.

Oh, thank you, that means a lot!

Great coloring on the satin ballet slipper :) Great anatomy as always!
hilarity's avatar
Thank you! I'm rather partial to that slipper, as well. I have no idea how it worked so well.
