Thank you, Percy...Thank you.

By
We shot into the depths- ten feet, twenty feet. I knew I had to be careful because I could withstand a lot more pressure than Annabeth. She fought and struggled for breath as bubbles rose around us.
Bubbles
I was desperate. I had to keep Annabeth alive. I imagined all bubbles in the sea- always churning, rising.
The sea obeyed. There was a flurry of white, a tickling sensation all around me, and when my vision cleared, Annabeth and I had a huge bubble of air around us. Only our legs stuck into the water.
She gasped and coughed. Her whole body shuddered, but when she looked at me, I knew the spell had been broken.
She started to sob- I mean horrible, heartbroken sobbing. She put her head on my shoulder and I held her. [...]
"I'll get us back to the ship," I told her. "It's okay. Just hang on."
Annabeth nodded to let me know she was better now, then she murmured something I couldn't hear because of the wax in my ears.

~ "The Sea of Monsters", Page 197


The title says what I think Annabeth said. This scene...I think it was the first really cannon moment of Percabeth as a love interest. Yeah, most of you will say now that he helped her as a friend but I read fanfctions and well...those delivered me versions where Annabeth's thinking was displayed and I thought of it as very logical. The reason why Percy wasn't in the fantasy was because Annabeth alreadyhad him. She didn't need to dream of him. Btw, I left out the fish in the quote because I fail at drawing them and didn't want to, they just didn't fit in with the scary atmosphere. :XD:

Alright, enough Percabeth rant :XD: I love the pic even though it's so dark and I fail at drawing underwater scenes. But hey, I tried ^^; Practise, practise, practise :D Other than that, please don't mention Percy's hair or Annabeth's tears. Or Percy's arm. They're horrible. I like their shoes though. And I can't make things appear wet, since Annabeth is supposed to look wet :XD:.

AND I tried to work on more emotional poses. Tell me if I failed please, 'cause it took me the whole day yesterday to get this goddamn pose right and it still looks awekard. I could throw up -_- Sorry for the rant "OTL.

Really hope you like it,
Love ya ~:heart: :tighthug:

compliments: to begin, this pic is excellent and actually shows many features of the sirens island. there are mine bombs as described in SoM and you can also see the sirens; shadows on top of the water. the bubble is excellent and the camp-halfblood t-shirts are a good idea.
what needs to be fixed: i dont think much needs to be fixed except for the effect of making the clothes look wet- mostly the tee. you could make the t-shirt look wet by making it cling to the body and making the colour darker in some parts. on the other hand you could make the clothes float around the body making it look like they are in water (you know how clothes bob around you when you're in water)
Thats all
good job on your other pics and... PLEASE MAKE MORE!!!!

This drawing is quite creative, as in the style. I respect their Camp Half Blood shirts and the position you drew them in is astounding. The water bubbles are a nice touch, and I found it interesting how Annabeth, a strong demigod of Athena, is crying in Percy's small arms. However i wish you could make it a little more original, kind of own it. I find it rather odd, that they are wearing the same shoes though, they even look the same size... awkward. Where are there weapons? Have they sunk? I love this drawing though, fantastic work <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> fav.

First of all, thank you very much for the critique! :hug:
And I guess it is pretty strange they are wearing the same clothes xD. But if you reread the book, you'll notice that after Cece's island, a change of clothes is needed especially for Annabeth and I guessed a camp shirt would be appropriate, since it's after all their trademark. About their shoes...well, that was just me being lazy :XD:. I have to be honest there, there isn't really a reason. It was said that Annabeth was wearing these type of shoes though and it seems like Percy's style so I didn't think it would be a problem ^^.

Other than that, I'm glad that you like it, thanks again! :hug:

Ah btw: Their weapons didn't drown. Annabeth left her dagger on the ship and Percy's sword is in his pocket ^^.

actually, annabeths knife was on board the ship and percy's riptide was in his pocket.
and this IS pretty original to me.

AliasArtworks's avatar
