Dance: the hidden language of the soul by Shadowed-Serenity Dance: the hidden language of the soul by Shadowed-Serenity
Title based on a quote by Martha Graham.

Reference: [link]

Ballet has always been a part of my life, and though I haven't officially danced in a while, I was looking through tumblr, and found the reference picture, and tried to draw it.

I guess my reason for this is twofold: I haven't posted much "serious" drawing (mostly because I haven't done much serious drawing), and I wanted to show it off, and then to show off a little part of me.

I saw a picture a friend of mine had doodled, similar to this, actually, and the anatomy of it kept bugging me, because it didn't look physically possible. This, on the other hand, I could totally imitate (but not on pointe) if I were flexible again... I took care to make this realistic, anatomically.

This probably took a little over half an hour. I kept the dress simple on purpose, because the focus was really more on her body and shadows.

This piece is pretty overall! The movement flows, and her expression really shows how into it she is. Good job! :clap:
