Sketchbook - Tiny Dancer

I've been wanting for a long time to start drawing dancers, as I don't have much practice with "movement," I guess you would say. I love drawing human faces and I've (obviously) been in an animal doodle kick lately, so I'm excited to try something new.

I definitely don't have all the proportions and movement exactly right, but it was a fun first try!

In other news.

Do you ever make a perfect meal and then all you can think of for the rest of the night (and admittedly the entire next day) is how good it tasted and how you would like to eat some more? How you wish your stomach was five times bigger so you could eat five times more?

Or is it just me?

The hubs and I have been making these black bean tacos with lime slaw for awhile now, but last night we completely superly perfected them. And I can't stop dreaming about it.

Perfect. Black bean tacos. mmmmmm so good.


  1. i've done black bean tacos, burritos what have you a lot the last couple months for lunches...but oooo, the cabbage slaw sounds fab.

    i LOVE the dancer. degas is my favorite artist, so i have a soft spot for the drawn dancer. plus, if i have a girl, i am so going to force her into ballet.

    1. black beans must be where it's at!

      and yes i LOVE degas! One of my fave dudes.

  2. this is such a beautiful drawing! I am desperately lacking figure drawing skills. I don't notice a single thing wrong with yours. and if I had perfect tacos anywhere near my house I'd want my stomach to be 5 times bigger too!

  3. You are not alone in dreaming about food, when it is good it is just so GOOD.

    Also, love seeing your different kinds of sketches. Talent, you have it!


    1. Glad I'm not the only food dreamer, haha. And thank you!
