Pearl Diver Sketches

I've been thinking about some new pieces to put in my portfolio to add some variety and to make sure I'm covering all my bases. I've noticed I need more pieces showing action, children (I seem to do a lot of least lately), and maybe some humor. So I've decided to revisit an old illustration (below) from my digital illustration class that I think can be improved. I've grown a lot since then and being able to do it traditionally will help. So here's an initial sketch, value study, and color study of the revised version. Something I need to work on is the environment. It's not very unique or interesting yet, but it's still just a sketch!
