For my Alice Project

This is when Alice is leading the animals ashore (and not mentioning that it's her pool of tears they're swimming in). I'll probably crop this for the book.

Illustrator CS3, 3 hours, 43 minutes. I used a gradient mesh for the top of the water, along with some feathering of some spots in the water.

I'm aware that her hair seems a bit lopsided, but she strikes me as a girl who moves a lot. Even when treading water and talking to the animals, she's probably moving around to face whomever she's speaking to (which could explain the placement of her hair).

Pose reference use for head to waist. It's near impossible to find pictures of people swimming like this, so I approximated the legs.

Advanced critique desired because this will be part of a self-promotional booklet.

*lol* Don't worry, this is only one of many pictures of Alice. I'm not quite done with this chapter, and then I have ten more to illustrate.
