This is my interpretation of the photograph taken by Simon Crofts. I love his ballet photography, the way he captured behind the scenes; the excitement and beauty of ballet as well as the hard work and determination of the ballerina’s. He also takes really pretty pictures 😛 Anyway… I just started my new job but will still be posting, if I stop doing school work my teachers (and my Mum) will kill me!! Have a great week guys!!
Some quick free hand sketches, I used crayons, biro and fine liners (and some tipp-ex) It was quite challenging to draw without being able to rub out anything. They aren’t amazing but it did really help my figure drawing 🙂
This is a photograph of me when I was little-ish. I really like it because my Dad took it and it reminds me of Christmas when I went to sleep early so St Nicholas would come, and I’d wake up to a full stocking at the end of my bed. So seeing as my current project is on ballet; I thought it appropriate to draw me. Then I decided to do another with ink as well 🙂 Thinking about it now, I can’t remember the photo being taken, but I am sitting here typing this in the same place! Hope you like my little sketches xx
A ballerina in ink, with tea stained background. I’m doing a ballet project at the moment so you are going to see a lot of ballet dance illustrations. I really enjoyed making this, especially using the inks to create the tutu!
