Illustration Friday - (Hippo) Tango

So the topic this week is Tango, which made deciding what to draw pretty easy. It was either dancing, or a fruit that's a mix between a tangerine and a mango (a tango? Get it? HA!) Dancing seemed like a better choice. Dancing hippos seemed like a cooler choice. I checked out a bunch of Tango videos on Youtube so I could get a feel for how the dance looked, since I'm no dancer, and it's better to have a reference in mind. I'm happy with this, and found that it wasn't as tough to draw as I thought it would be. This is possibly my shortest art post yet.

  8. I love dancing hippos! They can indeed be quite graceful, especially when you see them swimming underwater. Great tango pose!

I imagine that the comment box feels lonely when it's empty, so leaving a comment would be a great thing to do. If you leave a nice comment, good things might happen.
