Poltergeist: The Swimming Pool

The client for this one wanted an illustration of the scene where JoBeth Williams’ character falls in the swimming and is beset by corpses, but wanted it shown from under the surface. Having watched the scene, I realised I’d have to take certain liberties with the water clarity, which looks utterly murky in the film. However, I did notice there’s a light overhead which meant I could give the composition a strong light source.
