More lovely Degas drawings!
Ballet dancers always look a bit "off" because of the amazing way they can twist and turn their limbs (it hurts just to think about it).
Alecto, I almost missed your drawing. You really caught the expression on that portrait.
Here's a copy of a nude by Henri de Triqueti. The head shape is quite off, but I can't correct it, as it's in colored pencil (the whole thing is Tuscan Red). I gave the paper a watercolour wash, which turned it redder than intended. Still, it was a good exercise, and I'm reasonably pleased with the figure. Haven't done those for a while.
