A Very Brief Public Service Announcement
This last drawing turned out looking too much like just coupé arrière, but as you can probably tell, I was done effing around in S-Note by then.
In short, though, if your instructor shouts, “BACK OF THE KNEE!!!” when you’re firing off your pique turns, make sure you’re not the party poupé-er attaching your foot halfway between passé and coupé.
We now return to our regularly-scheduled Break Week.

I laughed so hard at poupé! I gotta tell this to my teacher tonight, she’ll love it. We do poupés a lot and she keeps reprimanding us.
Also, nice drawings! I thought you were the king of bad MS Paint and didn’t realise you could *actually* draw. Though the last one bridges the gap a bit. 🙂
Thanks and thanks! I should mention the concept of “poupé” to BW (who inspired it) and Killer B, too. I think they’ll enjoy it 😀
I sound really get around to posting some of my serious visual art stuff 😀 Mostly I wind up using bad MSPain(t) things because A) I’m lazy and B) they make me laugh, but I’m fairly good at drawing, watercolors, and sculpture in real life. I don’t do much formal work right now, though.
That’s really cool! I like looking at people’s art, I hope you post more someday. I also like the concept of myself making art, but I’m neither particularly talented nor well-practiced, so I limit myself to buying expensive art supplies and never using them. D:
