Walk away, you know how
Don't start caring about me now Music Note Bullet (Teal) - F2U 

A couple years ago I did some pose studies based on choreography by Brian Friedman featuring my tengu character, Aho. I was watching some choreo again recently, which seems to have a pattern of inspiration! So here's another set of drawings with Aho dancing it up, this time based on Zach Venegas's performance of "Don't Start Now" by Dua Lipa: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZCu3K…

I was surprised when I realized this was the same song that’s been stuck in my head all morning. What a coincidence that this was on my Home page! Now not only is the song stuck in my head, but a dancing bird is too! Haha, amazing work!

very expressive character!

my favorite is the second from the top and 3 from the bottom (back to the viewer)

Thanks! The third pose on the bottom row I also really like drawing, love the sassy hip out to the side.

I ended up watching the whole video and the girl with the Body + tshirt just made my jaw drop cause I'm watching the groups ahead of her group going "ah man you gotta be like super thin and shit, I couldn't do that", then she came with her group and like brought it so hard I'm crying.  Anyone can dance.  Just gotta put the work in and love it.. Anyone. Can. Dance.

Your comment made me tear up, I'm so happy to have shared the video! That girl's name is Amanda LaCount, she's appears in a lot of Brian's choreo classes!! She's so amazing, I agree.


Dance is for everyone!!

yeah but as someone who got bullied  because my sense of rhythm left much to be desired along with my struggles knowing left from right under pressure I never considered dance to be even an option.  I left marching band with more anxiety than when I joined, so I can imagine the hurdles she has overcome from the haters and even teachers telling her shit.  And she just brings it.  Slaps em in their faces and I am reminded about why the arts and everything is important.  That it is for everyone.  Just dance your dance.
