El Tango de Roxanne - Moulin Rouge! (2001)
Performed by Ewan McGregor, Jacek Koman & José Feliciano

Originally written and performed by The Police.
Moulin Rouge! became the first movie musical in ten years to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture of the Year since Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (1991). (x)

Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever. The end.

Because it is a choice. He need only say no. Or yes. One word holds both our fates. Choose me. Choose the dawn. He didn’t before. He has to now.

miniaturestudentllama  asked:

can you please do number 20 papyton dancing please! Your art is so great!

20.) Dancing

This is the last of the prompts (at last!) I spent a long time thinking about this one and working on it. The genres are contemporary, tango, hip hop, and swing. I wish I could draw more but I only have so much time:

Also wanted so show MTT’s advanced prosthesis. I wanted to use bolder colors but I realized that would distract from the compositions, so I kept it closer to his skin tone for now.

Songs/choreography that I listened to while working on these:

Contemporary: James Bay’s “Let it go” and Ed Sheeran’s “The A team”

Tango: Moulin Rouge “El Tango de Roxanne” and Cello Guys “Smooth Criminal”

Hip Hop: SYTYCD “Get Outta Yo Mind” and Mashup “Shape of You/The Greatest/Cheap Thrills”

Swing:  “Puttin on the Ritz” and Michael Buble’s “Feeling Good”


ALSO, HUGE INSPIRATION!

Double amputee Amy Purdy: “Contemporary” “Tango” “Freestyle” “Quickstep”

Watching her in competition helped a lot for researching dance, movement, and understanding physical limitations. She is amazing, please check her out!
