Belly Dancer by Jenny Heidewald

Belly Dancer
by Jenny Heidewald

Prompt: Belly Dancer
prompted by: Mayumi Ogihara, during Sketch Fest #57 (October, 2014)

Second piece for Numbatovember! I was going to do anthro-numbat, but liked the idea of a masked dancer. Notice her belt, the numbat doesn't have a full pouch, the babies cling to the mamma's belly. I'll be posting a Numbat a day on my facebook art page, and 50% from sales will be sent to Project Numbat. Numbats are an endangered Australian marsupial, estimated wild population is about 1,000 individuals. Groups dedicated to numbat recovery include Perth Zoo and Project Numbat. Visit and like my Facebook art page to follow Numbatovember! This will be Micron pen on 2.5 x 3.5" Bristol paper.


Mayumi Ogihara says: Great sketch, Jenny. I love it! ♡ Thank you so much for using my prompt xx ~ Reply?

     Jenny Heidewald replied to this: Thank you Mayumi! I'm glad you prompted "belly dancer" because I wanted to draw one. :D The finished version is up now, I really like how she turned out. :)

Erich Heidewald says: Her pose has great motion. :) ~ Reply?

     Jenny Heidewald replied to this: Thanks Erich! I looked up those tribal belly dancers, love those outfits, kind of steam punk.
