Halfway through this, I deeply regretted doing it in my sketchbook instead of on watercolor paper, because I just couldn't get the level or subtlety of shading I needed on the thinner paper. I also went too purple with the asphalt as a background, so the dancer doesn't stand out as much as she could/should have. There's lots wrong with this, but it definitely was a great exercise in rhythm lines and s-curves. The muscles, the grace, the expression, were all a privilege to attempt to mimic.
This is #17, the second today in an attempt to catch up. Since she wasn't on Sktchy, I don't have a name, so...
