Creative Challenge: Week One - Tango 1

Today is my first post for a new 3-week challenge. If you want to read more about it, see my previous post. If you want to join the fun, just leave me a comment and I can add your link to the 3-week challenge list.

Above is a sketch for Illustration Friday prompt "tango." I used photo reference, which is how I sometimes start. Not sure where I will take this, but it was fun studying the action and the positive and negative shapes of the dancers.

I don't know Ann Marie sometimes I think you are better suited for Vanity Fair or the New Yorker, you draw some sexy stylish pictures. Looking good.

Oh my, I love black and white line work! There's something dramatic about it. You can hear the music in this one! Oh, please email me the instructions for the photoshop! I would love it! Wonderful style you have!
