Belly Dancer

          I'm happy to say that the last few poses that we've done in my drawing the costumed figure class have actually been models in costumes, not street clothes (well, one wore street clothes but they were so funky it looked like she was wearing a costume.)
          Here the model wore a belly dancing outfit. This is also the model who wore the mongolian outfit. The were both her costumes. It's fun to draw someone wearing an actual costume. I hope it keeps up this way, because t-shirts just aren't that exciting to draw.

Woman in Mongolian Hat

Here is the latest of my drawings. The model wore a wonderful asian/mongolian costume that I got so wrapped up in drawing that it messed me up.  I had to start over. Then I focused on just her face and I can't say I'm sorry. I like this one a lot. Maybe because I let myself use color. Slowly my drawing skills are edging up and it's exciting!
