Habibi Turkish Dancer by Artgerm Habibi Turkish Dancer by Artgerm
An artwork I did for a friend who run a turkish inspired clubhouse in China. The dancer's anatomy is slightly exaggerated to match the visual style I choose here.

Done in Painter IX and PS. Approx: 4.5 hours.

EDIT: some adjustments on her body. :)

I love the coloring and surprizing flexibility of the dancer. Real eye catching trying to see how she's rotating and moving in this captured still. Good job.

Someone likes RED! Wonderful stuff you incorporate a lot of styles in your art. I see Mike Kaluta, Alphonse Mucha(Art Nouveau), Frank Miller, Luis Royo, Ghost in the Shell artist forget the name Shirow or something, Brandon Choi... I can go on and on You are really masterful with all the different styles! I really like it!

great atmosphere and color but I think the belly of such dancers should look a bit different(rounded and softer, containing lower protein level) to be anatomically realistic

This is surely an exquisite piece of work you have created here, Artgerm. Question: Why the heavy black outline around her figure. Wouldn't it help to soften and blend it to enhance the sense of curving towards the back (three-dimensionally) rather than the dark silloute effect that makes it look cut out (2-D) and pasted on the background? But, really, really... FANTASITIC, beautiful! Kudos!

''habibi'' means ''lover'' in arabic, and there is no linguistic connection between turkish and arabic. don't get me wrong, I find arabian and persian culture fascinating. but even though these cultures had common intersections in their history they have quite seperate cultures as well. you better re-tink the title again.

as for the work, even though it's a marvellous composition and has a beautiful painting style, position of the arm at the back is quite awkward and anatomically it seems wrong. anyway this is an eye candy work..
