There is nothing clumsier on land than a pelican. In the air is another story - dignity and grace with the attitude of a fighter pilot.

Annibel Lee rough

Two rough sketches for Annibel Lee; the one on the left shows the dead figure of Annibel framed by the moon, and standing before the sea with the wind blowing her hair. She is holding a chambered nautilus shell as a reference to the demons of the deep that await her arrival.
The sketch on the right depicts her under the water, with the demons of the deep dragging her down to their lair.
Any preference?
This is the semi-final painting. Not sure it's done... gonna look at it for a while and then decide where to go with it.
