Tribal Fusion - Manca Pavli by amberj8 Tribal Fusion - Manca Pavli by amberj8
A3 charcoal sketch of the beautiful Manca Pavli, a dancer and teacher of Tribal style belly-dance and oriental dance. I've been looking for some nice dancers to draw and paint, and the Tribal Fusion style really caught my eye. I love the jewelery and the costumes...they're so intricate, and this provided a great challenge for me to stretch my talents. All the lace was a pain, but worth the effort. I'd like to try drawing some of the other dancers soon.

Hope I've done justice to her beauty, and that you like my work. :)

Impressive work, incredible detail.  I have always found faces very tricky to capture, I am very impressed with your skill set.

Thanks very much. :) Glad you like my work. I love drawing faces...the rules are simple - after all, we all know what a face looks like, so we all recognize when the proportions are off or the angles are wrong, so it's a subject that works well with traditional realism.
