Why do illustrators always draw these old-fashioned claw-footed bathtubs, even though no house built in the last half century actually has them? Well, just think what a modern bathtub looks like. A basin inside a box that fits flush to the walls. It’s not curvy or fun in the least. Boring. Claw-footed tubs are much more fun to draw.
Yeah, I know. I forgot the faucet.
Actually, I didn’t forget so much as chose not to draw it because A. I don’t really like how it looks, B. I thought it would distract from the bubbles, and C. I didn’t think it was necessary to convey the idea. 🙂
