On The Drawing Board: Filling the Pool

Once I reach a point with the faces, even if I am not 100% done with them, I start to fill in other areas. I've found it helps substantiate what I've already done.

I'd been anxious to start the torso in the water, not really sure how difficult it might be. So far it's been mostly fun. I have several pool pictures that I am looking at, seeing how the water changes the colors of the skin and distorts the shapes beneath the surface. It also has it's own reflections, highlights and ripples to contend with.

It's at this point that my friend Mark finds my pictures 'disturbing', due to the fact that I have drawn the chest but have not added the nipples yet.
