I drew this a few years ago. The idea of sculpting her has haunted me since. I recently became the owner of a freestanding ballet barre and will start her in the near future. I have not decided on the material I will use but my plan is to use the ballet bar in the piece.
I drew the sketch from an underarmour advertisement featuring Misty Copeland. I like the advertisement because Misty's body language speaks volumes. Not to mention that it is not everyday that a ballerina is paid to promote athletic wear.
