Life drawings from bellydance videos, 2017-05-19 by AdamWarren Life drawings from bellydance videos, 2017-05-19 by AdamWarren
Studies of bared midriffs have been emphasized in the sketching I've been doing semi-daily since late 2016, due in part to the frequency with which we see exposed bellies in my ongoing comic series Empowered. (To be fair, the same goes for guys in the series, as my default approach to drawing six-pack abs has left a bit to be desired.) As I'm tired of repeating the same ol' crap outta my head, I've been trying to learn at least a little somethin' new in terms of both anatomy and shading. One obvious source for midriff-related photoreference is, as you might guess, paused bellydancing videos; here's the first set of a (whole) bunch of such dance-based sketches.

I am making $89/hour working from home. I never thought that it was legitimate but my best friend is earning $10 thousand a month by working online, that was really surprising for me, she recommended me to try it. just try it out on the following website... www.Jobzon3.com

LaurenHughess doesn't exist. This is a bot: so asking it why or telling it anything falls on ears that don't exist. It isn't programmed to respond to comments. It only spams so the owner can rob people and/or steal their identities. It also contributes nothing to DeviantArt or it's users.

Please report this thief via E-mail as it's the only way deviantART let's us do it at the moment. Thank you in advance.

These studies are always good practice.
I uploaded my own original comic on my page called 'Avenger of Hyberia'. Check it out if you like! Thanks!

These are very well done!! The shading is awesome, I keep catching myself staring :D!!

If you don't mind my asking, what are your typical go-to's for practice like this? :0c
I've been meaning to do something similar, but I never know where to start, and I'd like to follow your example and start doing more practice from life!!

Adam, you should check out videos from Diana Bastet on YouTube. She’s a wonderful belly dancer.
