YSYS: Dancing Hippo

TAP Dancing Hippo!

(So I think my drawing is ready to paint, and then I realize I can draw it better!  Today I redrew the dancing hippo... check him out!)

"Spinning does not help me feet,
My feet dance to a different beat!"


Here was my very first sketch of this scene haha...

And then I got these guys going...


This is the one I did today.  I like him best:


INSPIRATIONAL IMAGES:

Fred Astaire and Savion Glover





Arms up, 
feet up and sideways and all over, 
head tilted, 
cane!

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth. 

~Mark Twain

  1. Nice movement there, Ginny! The one you did today looks like he's doing hip-hop.

  2. Dear Ginny,

    I like the images very much! It is hard to depict movement in one picture. I like the humor in your hippo!

    Best wishes!
