Tango lines

Tango lines

Due to a pronounced lack of decent tango reference photography , I used a screenshot of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK1ccWeU3gA I originally meant to use them as reference only, but now that I think of it, I might as well count this as fan art, plain and simple. Carlitos is barely visible, but I think we’re all quite happily focused on Noelia anyway. Although I plan on redoing it at some point, I think it turned out quite well, all in all; despite all the imperfections, it captures that deliciously fluid, twisty quality that makes tango magical. I doubt that this will be my last tango-themed sketch. . .

  1. Lovely shoes, too!

    I think working from screenshots as a visual reference is actually a really great way to go since there’s less likelihood of stepping on the original photographer’s toes.
