Russ Tamblyn and Debbie Reynolds, supposedly, although I didn't use references, so they're kind of vague representations of the awesomeness.

So we've been playing West Side Story in Symphonic Band, and it's our first halftime show for football season next year, which means that basically I'm going to have "Gee, Officer Krupke" permanently stuck in my head until November.

Not that I mind. I've been on a Russ Tamblyn kick, and I paired him up with Debbie here because they're ridiculously cute looking together. I haven't seen Hit the Deck!, mostly because it's such a lame, goofy musical that nobody even remotely associated with movies carries it, but I want to, just to see the two of them together.

...I had to put Rusty in saddle shoes. I just had to.

I knew it was Russ Tamblyn (WHO IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!) but I didn't know that it was Debbie Reynolds who was with him. But this is really good nonetheless. It's awesome!

Heh.

I was thinking I needed to get Seven Brides for Seven Brothers out again... He's just so cute and nimble in that movie, and who doesn't love a group of singing-dancing-red-headed-lumberjacks? I know I do...

Ah yes. Ballet lumberjacks carrying off townswomen. Classic cinema doesn't get much finer than that... ;)

Haha - I love how happy they look dancing oldschool-style! :XD:

I haven't seen West Side Story for a looong time, and my memories of it are vague at best.

I do recall lots of dancing with finger-snapping, I remember the "you got a rocket in your pocket, just play it cool boy" bit because that struck me as highly amusing the first time I watched it, and I remember the little knife fight, and that dance scene :D. And also the part where all those guys are singing to that police officer ^_^.

I can see you're getting more adventurous with fabric ;). I like the skirt, and I'm no authority on fabrics myself, but I SUSPECT that if you continue the highlights on the skirt all the way up to the waistline, it'd look better. At the moment it looks a bit like her skirt is glued onto her body until about 3/4 of a foot down, where the skirt fans out :P.

I really love the sense of movement you created with the flying skirt, the flying tie, and the flying necklace :P. I think the tie, especially adds a lot to the feeling. Also, the hands that are together look very good - I have so much trouble drawing hands that are holding other hands :P!

Thank you for your comments... it's rare I get such constructive criticism. Yeah, I'm still trying to hone my fabric skills, and I loosely based her skirt off of one of my friend's swing skirt, and it's designed so that when you spin, it only flies up to your thighs so you're not showing off your underwear... but I see what you mean with the highlights. I'm also unhappy with the highlights on their faces, so I'll probably alter it at some point and re-upload it.

Thanks! :hug:

Oh, you really should. It's funny... the parts of it that I like, I really, really like. But the parts that I don't like, I usually skip over because I'm like "blaaauugh." But it's a classic; you should see it.

...and thanks! :D
