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. . .

I love that there’s just an intriguing suggestion of Carlitos… Wonder if you could do another one that is the same scene, but from the opposite point of view?
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.
