Drawing dancers from the net

Below are some drawings from 2018. I wanted to draw the movement of a dancer, but not having a chance to draw a real dancer in a studio I resorted to drawing from videos on the internet.

I tried to capture the flow and energy of the movement whilst also capturing the form of the body through quick gestural marks.

Street drawing

I’ve been making movement drawings in my sketchbook whenever I can for some time. Often I like the results on their own, but I rarely post just these sketches; they often inform other drawings, but I like the raw quality of the sketches.

Another kind of energy
