Found an amazing promo photo of the 1948 New York Ballet - amazing shot. So I basically stole the whole thing for a drawing...changed her attire, added some satyr-ish bits, etc.
I let myself get way too stressed about the details in this...need to remember that my work tends towards sloppy, and that is okay. The joy for me is in getting the image onto the screen (or the page), the exact form it takes when it arrives is negotiable.
So, two relatively quick bits I drew tonight. It's kind of amazing how much better one can focus with a decent nights' sleep. First one is based on a really fantastic Katie West photo - her expression is priceless. Second is taken from another great piece of 1920's(?) erotica.
