Diving Belle Sketch by GoblinQueeen Diving Belle Sketch by GoblinQueeen
I almost never post the sketch before I'm done with the final piece, but not that many people look at my scraps anyhow and I've been wanting to work on this since January. JANUARY!!!! Ahem...anyhow, I finally had time to sit down and work out all the details. It'll be a while before I finish the final and there still might be one or two small changes, but at least it is in part out of my system ;)

As always, no use without express permission. Thanks :)

Wow... the interlocking pieces of the tail in this one still manage to seem so organic. Very impressive.

I like it. And I can also relate to having a picture for a million years stuck in the "I'll work on that when I have time" phase.

Lovely as usual! And clever! >^-^<

But you do realize the parasol made me think of the Lost City of Atlanta. He's in the suit, isn't he?

As much as I like the style you've established with the super-designy flat art deco girls, I'm hoping you keep this a little more loose when you finish it.

I love the mechanical like tail. Hmmm I wonder if she is trying to lure the diver into a trap? Hmmm. Very good! Scraps are always the best to show progress. I look forward to the finished piece.
