Day 19: Return to BalletMet!

This was a good drawing experience overall, though I had a hard time concentrating starting out.

I really aimed for difficult poses, like mid-air or one-foot ones, as well as ones with foreshortening.  I found out I had a lot of holes in my knowledge of anatomy when I tried to reconstruct some of the poses from my head!

    Good work. The last 2 drawings are wonderful. The other drawings are solid, as well. I don't think you need to 'finish' them, though. Their contours are contiguous (no breaks in the line) - and you can take advantage of this - especially with overlapping forms of foreshortened poses.
    I like that you're using value to indicate form.
    The most successful of these are where you focus your shading and heavier line in the torso and legs - where the force of weight lies (#s 1, 4, 8, 13 - going down). Use it in the arms when they are supporting the weight.
    Good, good, good.
