Dancing Base is an infamous art template used on DeviantArt as a running gag. It displays the base of two pointed-eared humanoids holding each other, obviously dancing.

Origin: The Template

Drawn by pokemonloveme88, Dancing Base was initially created as an original template for artists to use--in this case, a guideline to draw a dancing couple. She had no intention of making the template comedic material, but as a serious artwork. However, due to amateur anatomy skill, her template barely received any attention.

pokemonloveme88 is permanently banned from DeviantArt. She was allegedly accused of being under age; violating the age restriction policy on DeviantArt.

The Appeal

On March 12, 2010, DeviantArt user, LazyMuFFin used pokemonloveme88’s Dancing Base as a joke for his Base Party series.

Widely known for his comedic value on Deviant Art, LazyMuFFin’s work caught a lot of attention and humor by using pokemonloveme88’s Dancing Base. Soon after, others used the template to draw pairings and numerous fan-shipping couples, ultimately resulting in the creation of it’s own fan-club group. The reactions varied--from being appalled to amazed.

Pretty much all the Artists’ Descriptions are the same.

Within a few months, pokemonloveme88’s DeviantArt profile page filled with praise and critiques. Currently, her Dancing Base has over 26,000 views and over 250 Favorites.
