Her Majesty's Courier by CheiftainMaelgwyn Her Majesty's Courier by CheiftainMaelgwyn
AKA Bee Lady

EDIT:
I recently had to make a 10"x15" print of this image, so I resized it and re-painted it a little (hopefully reducing the pixelation).
The lady who bought it was just IN LOVE with this image, I was so happy to sell her a copy.

After a lot of help from :iconsonneteers: and a few other folks (oh yeah, my teacher :B [link] ) it is finished.
:iconexcitedplz:

UM.
So the final version has been flipped, the leg tweaked a bit, and a little photoshop filtering to improve the gesture. This was seriously SO MUCH FUN to paint. C:

CRITIQUES ARE STILL WELCOME. 8D

( you will be seeing this bee-lady again, you can count on it )

I adore the colours and the way you did the wings, and the fur looks really soft! :3

Daww thanks for the MENTIONING OF MY NAME, bro. And here I thought I was being a nitpicky dick.

Now the straight leg looks like it's more in perspective, I think it's way better! Great job.
Normal legs aren't quite that long, but I think shortening them to match those of a BORING HUMAN would've made the pose and composition less dynamic. She doesn't have to have the proportions of a human anyway.

Fgdgs the glows and highlights you added to this are awesome. I really like how you painted the wings, fur and the egg OR WHATEVER THAT COOL THING IS. Now it shows that they're all clearly different texture.

So is the Absolute Finished Version or are you gonna work on for example the bg more? Because I really like it the way it is. Rough, big and sketchy brushstrokes suit this baby.

Also was it intentional to not upload this in its real size? Since you can choose "original size" (or something like that) on the submit page so people won't have to click Download to see this in ~all its glory~.
You probably knew that already but HEY I have other friends who have/had no idea of that so. Just making sure here.


TL;DR: THIS IS BETTER AND EVEN MORE AWESOME AND YOU ARE COOL.

YEAH WELL. You gave me some really useful feedback. :>
I REALLY LIKE GLOWS. :iconexcitedplz:
I think my next painting will have ... three. YES, IN FACT IT WILL FOR SURE.
HAY THIS ONE HAS THREE GLOWS I'M SO SMART.:B

I'm just gonna leave it as is... yup. I'm done.

I have a really nice monitor with amazing hi-resness and widescreenedness.
But I didn't for the longest time, and I realize that not everyone does,
so I like to keep my images manageable, and if anyone wants to see it bigger,
they can.
But thanks!

OH MY GOSH THANKS. 8D

I kinda want to pet her fuzz. It's so fluffy and fun-looking! But then she would probably sting me. )8:

(By the way. The bow comment on Tegaki just about killed me dead, I lol'd so hard. :B )

8D Actually, I don't think she'd mind. She seems like a really laid-back kinda' gal. Big bees usually are.

( I'm glad you got it, when the idea occurred to me I nearly died. I couldn't NOT do it. X3 )
