Well, I had a very productive week so I'm super happy!! that's all I need, I'm easy to please. I got a lot of really good drawings done and creatively and technically I've gotten noticeably better which is awesome! I also had a couple of dancing dreams in which I was drawing the dream as it was happening--I love those! I have them, usually, when I'm deep into a project. I read somewhere that it means you are improving if you dream of the task you were performing throughout the day. I'll take it!
I didn't just draw ballerinas this week, I also drew another little lady dancing the bhangra! I think I will draw some adults dancing bhangra, too. I love small children dancing, they are so full of joy it's hard not to smile and laugh when they do it. And I love the images I get from it. Check her out:

So this time I did things a little differently. At first I was just drawing figures willy-nilly all over the page and then I tried to be a little more deliberate. This is what happened:
I loved how fluid the movement looks. For me the movement is clear but I wonder how well it's coming across to those who aren't trained in animation--anyway, the next thing I did was, naturally, to exapnd on that so I did this 2-page spread (Which is called a "folio" in book-making terms, just FYI!)
So, for sure, the movement is clear. I'm so happy with how this project is going. I feel very confident I Can fill a large room with these.....no worries, guys!! I'm really excited to work on the final images. Drawing pictures is so fun! And I'm super excited to draw Bhangra, next! I love how their skirts twirl around when then spin. :-D
