CdS - Dancing by Sheridan-J CdS - Dancing by Sheridan-J
For ages now I've wanted to do a full piece of this character I created; who's a sort of cross between Cirque du Soleil's Varekai and Alegria, and inspired by Les Ballets Grandiva.

The mask he's wearing is an actual Cirque du Soleil, handmade velvet mask, and can be bought at the CdS gift shop - for about $600 bucks :doh: [link] Isnt it just beautiful?? :O Someday......hehehe

Thank you :)
Unfortunately, I never got the mask :( I swear, it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen in my life (I actually had dreams about it for a few nights- it was that EPIC)
Even if I could just look at a real one again (and maybe hold it this time) :giggle:

We're heading to the states later this year, and we'll be seeing some Cirque shows in Vegas. I really hope they have some masks in their gift shops!! :D :fingerscrossed:

LOVE IT! Varekai was the first CDS show that I saw and I;m going to see Alegria in June. This is absolutely beautiful.

You lucky swine :XD: I'd love to see Alegria live some day! Is it an arena tour or still traveling under the Big Top?

BostonAngel Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011
no, it's in an arena =( i saw Varekai under the Big Top, though. I also saw La Nouba and Saltimbanco. so far Varekai was my favorite.

Ahh that's a shame.
It's just not the same cozy atmosphere in an Arena. We have Arena Saltimbanco coming here soon, and I'm deciding if I want to bother or not :lol:
Varekai will always be my favorite :D It's just perfect in every sense.

I agree wholeheartedly! The Big Top is the Big Top and nothing can trump it. And yes, Varekai is perfect in absolutely every way!

The colors are so full of life. I especially love the pose. I very much love the anatomy of his chest and backside as he arches back. The strokes are smooth and riveting.

I totally love this drawing! You've made such amazing work with the pose, and coloring of course! ^__^ :heart: The little golden ribbons really add a lot of motion to it, looks like they're dancing along with him :D His outfit is simply beautiful! I mean if it were a bit more complex it most probably wouldn't be as beautiful :love: I just love it, and the silky feel that you achieved with it ^_^
And of course I just love his tan skin...gee, I just noticed I've counted pretty much everything about this drawning, but it's only 'cause there's nothing about it I don't like :hug:
Overall, wonderful work, very impressive and also very inspiring, I feel like drawing something now :dance: :heart:
