Something I did recently for a potential job. Didn't get it, but that's okay. I now have ballerinas in my illustration arsenal.
Good thing Andrea's a dancer and that we have an 8 year old daughter. Lots of books laying around here on dance -- plenty of reference for me. (For the record: Andrea's more a modern dancer, but has books on all types of dance because she teaches it.)
Girls are so awkward at this age, especially when it comes to getting ballet poses right. It was fun trying to come up with some scenarios you see here.
Wow, it got real girly around here all of a sudden, didn't it? Oh, well. Enjoy your Labor Day, folks.
