Illustration Friday - "Tango"

Found Illustration Friday the other day, and it seemed like a fun idea to help get me back into drawing again. It gives you a word that you base your illustration on for the week, and you send it in with a link. It was the first time I've tried out Adobe Illustrator and its "Livetrace" options to vectorize a sketch and color it, and the edges came out a little awkward. This week's word was "Tango", which originally didn't seem too interesting - you could draw two wierd creatures tangoing or something I guess, but I decided to go with "Beginner's Tango, Room 215, 6-7PM". The outlines were sketched and scanned, but the faces were drawn in Illustrator, making them look like they don't quite fit in.
