Public Pool

 Public Pool

It's a typical day at the public pool, with the lifeguard more interested in her beauty than the swimmers' safety, until a UFO crash-lands in the nearby woods and the alien enters

PROCESS WORK (screenshots):

When working on the final drawing I decided to add some bent perspective guidelines, to help add the floor tiles

I did the same for the water to help me arrange the objects in the pool

Final Drawing

The bent perspective and objects add another level of oddness, interest, and makes the piece more dynamic

Added a Layer with some sand color in OVERLAY mode to apply where the light tones will be

added reflections in water on a separate layer in MULTIPLY mode

Wasn't satisfied with the way the reflections in the water looked, so I traced over them with blue hues

Added lemonade "urine" coming from lemon character w/ COLOR Layer mode

Added texture to pool floor, Layer set to MULTIPLY mode

The texture for the gingerbread cat is applied using a photograph of actual gingerbread on a separate layer with the layer mode set to PIN LIGHT

Final details are added, like cracks and strain marks
