Artwork Description

I've been having fun with more unusual poses, mostly it seems with African species. Seemed appropriate that the Cheetah should be on the edge.

Ahh, .1 deduction for not pointing her toes. Gotta love the good ol' balance beam....

*chuckle* Agreed! I think I do half of these oddball poses because I *know* i would kill myself doing them any other way but with a pencil Wink

This is a beautiful anthropamorphic illustration, but I can't keep myself from thinking what would happen to my spine if I were to attempt that pose. *Crack!* AAaaarrrgh! Seriously though, great pencil work!

Thanks! Actually, I listen to Cirque du Soliel ALOT when I am working on pictures Smile I didn't really intend it to be along those lines, but I guess the music got to me Wink

this is wonderful along with your other art. Smile All I was thinking with the cheetah's pose is " Cirque Du Sole ." it's wonderful and keep up the good work!

Thanks! And your right, that would have probably improved teh floating quality of that hand. I'll keep that in mind since I enjoy doing the pseudo-frames Smile

Very pretty hun, I love these nifty poses my only suggestion being that the hand off the edge of the actual "frame" be wrapped around it instead of floating in space. You're work is great. Smile

Art at its best.
