Wow. I love how the dancer isn't in a ballet pose at all, but instead with her hands on her hips looking down. I like that you can't see her feet, shoes, or most of the legs because it draws the eyes to more interesting aspects than the cliched perfect-ballerina-on-pointe look.

Sophistication isn't what you wear or who you know
Or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go
They didn't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me,
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity.

oh, I sort of see that. Yeah,  I guess you're right; the light does lift her eyes upward even though the tilt of her head is down.

i agree, its an amazintg painting, but i dont think shes looking at her feet, yes her heads down, but shes looking up at something with a look thats so sure of herself. its very inspiring!

Really really good, bu ti feel like because sh'es looking down the focus should be on her feet. all of the lines are vertical, with a down edge, espcically in the dress, and it leaves me wishing you had added in the feet. other than that, great work!
