Off the Ever-So-Deep End by jbwarner86 Off the Ever-So-Deep End by jbwarner86
In between commissions, I haven't forgotten my ten free entries in the Underwater Babes/Cuties of Toontown. And here's the submission in the latter series suggested by my old commission buddy :iconlila89:, who wanted to see me draw Lila Sawyer from "Hey Arnold" underwater. Of course, there's only one drawback to that idea - according to the canon of the show, Lila can't swim.

Now obviously, I keep my gallery clean of any pieces that depict realistic drowning, since that's kind of on the creepy side, so clearly, I had to think up a situation where Lila doesn't mind being in the water. So let's say this is the end result of a story where Arnold teaches Lila how to swim over the course of several weeks. After their last session, they've already dried off and changed back into their street clothes, and Lila is ever-so-grateful to Arnold for educating her - so much so that she plants one on him. And Arnold, standing with his back to the pool, ends up tumbling into the drink, bringing his thankful pupil along with him. Looks like it's back to the changing rooms for them!

Alternatively, she still can't swim, but Arnold is able to drag her back up to safety. ;-)

Arnold definitely wouldn't want Lila to drown, but he could always teach her how to swim.  I just had an idea where he does just that in a scene in the "Jungle Movie". (A little naughty, if you know what I mean).   Of course, Helga spies on them and sneaks up on them and tries to drag them under (but not drowning them).

Huh, how could I have let this pic slip by? I should pay a little more attention these days, another gallery browse may be in order.

Yup... Lila's not a good swimmer. But she can drown the love for Arnold. :love: The underwater pool scene looks so lovely and excellent at the same time. :)

I do wonder though what an underwater kiss is sorta like, since it is by the mouth and whatnot.

I agree with many of the others in that this is also one of my favorite underwater pictures from you. Story-wise, it looks like it could have come straight from the show. And frankly, Arnold's expression is flat-out adorable.

Heh, kinda makes me wish I was Arnold right about now.
Man, that was such an awesome cartoon. You've got the style of the characters down pat. I don't know how you do it. The only explanation must be "hard work".

Of all the colored images I've seen you done, this is probably my most favorite one of them all.

I also like the thought behind it as well.

Swimming lessons? That's a realistic possibility (though I would've gone with scuba diving or something....I'm very uncreative ^^;)
