It took me an unexpectedly high amount of effort and time in finalizing this work. Though intended to be a practice in drawing plants and backgrounds (which I have little experience in), I also wanted to draw Elyse in a *ehem* bikini~

- the one on the left. There are some significant corrections done on the lineart.
I have yet to see a pool with aquatic plants in it - unless it is part of a bigger circulating system, as is the case here. I think it is possible to create a maintenance-free pool when we incorporate natural systems such as plants and circulating the water. The plants are growing out of spaces in the tiles.
Hope you enjoy! Comments and suggestions are welcome, these may be applied in later works.
