Danger beneath the surface by Sir-Raymond2k3 Danger beneath the surface by Sir-Raymond2k3

Yes. Finally a new artwork after a long time. I was just too lazy to draw one in the last time. XD
I've never used so many layers for a picture as for this one.
And i'm really glad how the water effect and Kia's lowrider pants turned out.

Poor Kia. She was on her way home from a party and wanted to take a shortcut through the meadows behind her village which she often used... just not in the last time.
A long period of rain has turned her peaceful Way into a waterway.
She was pretty annoyed over that fact but she decided to go still through it.
On her way, she felt the ground give slithly away by every step she made.
Annoyed to know that she now needed considerably longer than she had planned and that her new skinny lowrider pants are getting wet and dirty, she grabbed a long branch to use it as a support on her way.
After a while she suddenly plunged, up to the middle of ther calves, into a deep and soft mudpit, which makes loud gurgling noises.
When she felt that she was slowly dragged down by the bubbling mud she tried desperately to lift her legs but that causes just a deeper sinking.
Lying on the ground wasn't a wise idea too, because the water was deep enough to drown in it, if her arms would became stuck in it.
The mud was so thick that she couldn't even get out her stick no matter how hard she pulled on it and it causes her only to slipping deeper.
She realized pretty quick, that she can't escape it. It was Quicksand!
Her familiar shortcut has turned into a treacherous trap in which she was badly trapped and
going nowhere but down when nobody would come to save her.

To the alternative: fav.me/d9xbl35

I hope you like it! :-)

This is super cool setting and I love the thin water on top.
The mud must be very wet and soft!

Oh, dangerous conditions! O///O
May somebody will come anyway? She is too cute to die here by this swallowing mud, or just by hypothermia X3
Anyway, truly amazing job! Love your works sooo much! Keep drawing please, don't be lazy! Thank you!

She would rather swallowed by the mud, before she can die by hypothermia. But don't
worry, her friends are nearby her. And they know that she often use this shortcut to go home. ^^
I've planned an alternative version of this. With a slightly different outfit for her that reveals even more of her body. :D

I got 2 questions

1. Do your characters even die when they do sink, or do they not and it's actually easy for them to escape another way? (Given the fact that there are so many comics of these characters even in some where they sink completely still manage to show up in the other ones, almost as if they never sunk in the first place)

2. Will her arms be stuck in the alternative? :3

1. Not really. They will be saved offscreen
2. Nope. I just change a bit her clothes and giving her another feeling about that situation.

1. It's a secret! ;)
2. Stucking arms are good, but that does not fit to this situation. But don't worry, you will see more than enough stucking arms in future drawings.

I like the concept of a muddy trap lying beneath the water surface...  and, a very deceptive trap at that.  I also like how you have the water just deep enough to make it a hazard as Kia sinks deeper while having it shallow enough to increase the emphasis of the danger to the mud.

Beautiful job at showing the mud through the transparancy of the water, and I like the slow, gradual rise of the water up Kia's pants as the moisture soaks into the fabric.  I love that you have the mud SO thick and sticky that it coats her stick heavily and prevents her from pulling it free...  we can only imagine the power of the mud's tenacity and suction that hold her legs fast.

Love the expression on Kia's face as she realizes the danger she's in.  I also like the soft, almost pastel looks of the colors you used, and I like how the serenity of the background deceptively hides the danger of the water.

Thanks for sharing!

Wasn't there another picture you made where one of your characters was stuck in tar?
Are you thinking of doing a series like that?
