A pencil drawing made in April, painted and tinted in Painter and Photoshop May 14th 2007.

An entry for :iconfemalemuscle:'s May theme Physical Fitness and Sports.
This was drawn from a reference photo of gymnast Carly Patterson I found in my clip files. I've always liked the degree of muscularity female gymnasts build up, even though they're little tiny gals for the most part.
Anyway, it's not intended as fan art- I retained the pose for the most part, but beefed this gal up alot and changed her expression. I see (to my chagrin) that I kept the suit design the same, though. Ah well- I'll have to watch that in future sports drawings.

Its well done and your drawingskills are great. but I'd never call this a gymnast! Its not even a bodybuilder. Muscles, yes, but this gymnast is fat, too. There isnt the frame, that you meant. I know what style this is

Aw, but she'd never do it- I'm sure she is a gentle midget.
Glad you like the piece.
