Illustration Friday: Mysterious





















I love belly dancers and I especially love them as subject matter for art. It's been a while since I drew any (all those beefy guys taking precedence; see below). Tribal fusion belly dancers, in particular, are wonderful to create from: their sinewy movements and exotic and creative costumes evoke the mysterious.

Inspired by a photo by Falln-Stock.
