An updated image of the underwater picture I've been working on for some time now. At least the whole surface is covered at this point; however there is still so much work for me to do... I'd like to make the entire back round darker in order to make the diver pop better. Defining the trailing bubbles a bit more would probably help too. Ah well, off to draw more!

I added in the bathing suit pieces and many more bubbles. The bubbles trailing the hair are nowhere near done and require much more definition. Contrast in the back round needs to be stronger but I am going to revise that later on... and the hair definitely needs to be fixed.

If I could miraculously grow gills, trust me I would... No it's not mermaid envy or some sort of childhood fantasy related crap. Honestly, being underwater, in water, even around it is such a relief; like any weight from stress and life in general is being lifted.
With that said.... I added the image above to show my newest W.I.P.... My aim was not to create another self-portrait, even though I remain the easiest person to use for reference (which I'll need to change). Luckily my face isn't apparent so there's no need to focus on the who but rather the what... A dive into the water is one of the only abrupt actions involved in voluntarily being in it, once you're under though the rest of the world doesn't exist, it's quiet, even thoughts are silent for those few moments. Actual peace... I can't wait 'til this piece is complete, but I refuse to rush it which may take some patience and restraint =)...
