Equilibrium by kevinroberts Equilibrium by kevinroberts
Caylea, 6' of lean mean dance machine on pointe haha I have a whole series of these I'm going to make into hood ornaments.

More dance on my facebook page [link]

I love dancers bodies, and even more the things they can do with them - not just the beauty but an expressiveness that transcends language. I hope to put dance together with my fine art and figure studies. There's more and more a stigma attached to nudity these days though, so finding models may be a challenge.

She looks like she is ice skating until you see the pointe shoes :)

On ice it might have been impossible for her to do . . .

Absolutely STUNNING photo! Perfectly showcases the athleticism of dancers and I love the balance between light and shadows you've created here!
I'm a dancer (retired) myself and love to draw dance. I have a question for you. How would you feel about giving me permission to draw this photo? Not for ANY sort of commercial intent, just for my own pleasure and showcasing here on dA (with full credits of course!!).
I fully understand if you wouldn't like it and of course will refrain from doing any such thing without your permission!
I hope to hear from you if/when you find the time! :)

Thank-you very much Lanitha (I like that name) I appreciate that! I would LOVE for you to draw this, and in spite of what you say I'm impressed by your skills. I'm so glad that you find the subject matter as inspiring as I do and looking forward to seeing what you do.

That is some intense control :0 And I have to agree with you - dance is really something that transcends language. Not to mention it gives people the most gorgeous bodies! :D
