WELL YOU WIN SOME, AND YOU LOSE SOME. UNFORTUNATELY DAVE DID NOT LIKE THIS DRAWING SO IT WON'T BE ON HIS WEBSITE.
This is another scene from a book that I was commissioned to illustrate titled Blood Witness http://bloodwitness.com . The book is written by Dave Hit http://www.davehitt.com . You can listen to the Podio-book for free @ http://bloodwitness.com/?page_id=71 .
The person emerging from the water was a recently turned vampire that was left to die in the sun. I thought that the lillipads, the frog, and the bloated hand would be a nice addition to this scene.
