Spanish artist Sonia Alins is the creative behind 'Into the Water,' a project that shows strangely shaped human figures in a seemingly expansive body of water.

In order to create this effect, she draws them onto a single piece of paper and then layers a transparent piece over top. With this, she makes it appear as though they're immersed into the water, allowing a cloudy version of their bodies to remain exposed.

While the paper beneath remains clear in most of the artwork to generate a calm and dewy effect, Sonia Alins adds in components in others to recreate the look of small aquatic plants. In addition to this, she adds ripples around her subjects to make their immersion in the water even more evident.
