Rock Bottom by jbwarner86 Rock Bottom by jbwarner86
The idea I came up with for Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble required some research, as I shamefully admit that I haven't seen as much of this landmark series as I'd like. But nonetheless, I do know that the first season episode "The Swimming Pool" centered around a pool being built between the yards of the Flintstones and the Rubbles. It created some conflict between Fred and Barney, but in this scene, at least their wives don't have any trouble putting it to good use.

I always liked Betty best. I remembered that there use to be a poll to see which of the two peeps liked best (this a long while back) where Betty had the most votes. Wander which lady the polls would lean on if done on DA. Then again, a quick search on the two should prove enough. Anyhow, great pic. ^_^

I remember when I was younger, when they'd run the unrestored, choppy prints of the 1960s TV series in syndication as well as another syndicated series called Fred Flintstone & Friends, wherein they'd run cartoons featuring the teenaged offspring of the Flintstones and the Rubbles (Pebbles and Bam-Bam, respectively), as well as some Yogi cartoon set on an airship, and a cartoon spinoff of The Partridge Family which isset in the future (thus giving Hanna-Barbera an excuse to recycle background paintings etc. from The Jetsons).

I think you should have had Fred and Barney behind them locked in a struggle over who owns the lion's share of the pool. Hehe.

That's a "rock-solid" pic, if you please mind the pun! Good job!

Could you just explain something to me, briefly...

What, exactly, is the premise of all these underwater pictures?
Is it some kind of art genre?
Or a fetish?

I'd like to know these things.

qwerty described it pretty well. I like the artistic qualities of underwater fashion photography, and I try to capture those same qualities in my artwork. And it's all women because frankly, as a single heterosexual male, I'd rather draw female models than male ones.

No...not a fetish. It's just another form of art, based from JB's admiration of underwater photos, mostly modeling. Although I think it'll sound better if he explained it himself.

Righty-ho then. To each their own.

It's good artwork, no doubt about that. I just found it a tad... abstruse.

Anyway, keep it up.

I've actually suspected it's a little of both. Not that I'm judging. I've got some of my own dark little secrets. Oh, so very dark...

I miss The Flintstones soooo much! :-( Scooby-Doo's okay but why doesn't Warner Bros. do anything with these other characters anymore? They're classics!

Nice little tribute to the swimming pool episode. What's funny is that I just remembered it again when I saw that you were going to do Wilma and Betty so I thought since they're underwater it would have something to do with that episode, LOL! :XD:

Scooby-Doo fits enough into the spooky/morbid obsession that's so big these days with the younger generation and it's still an old cartoon that bridges the gap between young and old, so a network can air it and still seem "okay" by parental standards. That and it's just about the only old cartoon that's still considered politically correct.
