Bee Sting by BlackMage339 Bee Sting by BlackMage339
Something I actually came up with years and years ago, when I made a strange comment to one of my friends. "I'm gonna be so rich I'll own a beeskin coat."

I wasn't all that sensible back then.

Originally she had two daggers made from badger teeth, a la Buck from Ice Age, but they made a nasty shape on the page, then she had glowing magic hands, and that covered up too much of the actual drawing and created lighting problems...so she gets the spear (which was originally a bee sting but I couldn't get it right.)

this is the direction I'm hoping to take with my art. I really like how this turned out. Let me know if you'd like to see more in this style, because it was really fun :) Hint, hint.

I'm experimenting with watermarks, trying to get the balance between marking it as my own and allowing people to still enjoy the piece. Tell me what you think!

No art theft please!

Wow, a beeskin coat! Great idea. :) Did you paint the coat details or you use texturework?
I like her stance and the metallic detail in the spear tip is also pretty cool.

Also good that you're coming up with your own watermark idea, the standard dA watermark is horrible!

Thanks! :D I painted all the individual hairs on the coat, not my best work but I prefer doing things the hard way for some reason! I was pretty pleased with the metal, so thank you for noticing it :)

Haha, I know, I try to avoid the standard one if I can!
