This is beautiful! What medium did you use? Pastel? Paint? The shading and detail is stunning, and the ballerina's face is haunting in it's dark grace. I will immediately add this to my "favorite" collection.

First of all, I absolutely love drawings of ballet. 

Your ability to capture the facial expression is a true gift. Keep making more art! :D
