Latest Update: Final Image: The Swarm!

Thanks to everyone!

THE SWARM. The hive has gotten to big. its time for the Queen to find a new place. In a rush of activity and noise, she leaves the old hive with a large contingent of bees. Behind in the care of a new younger Queen, the old hive will continue to thrive with an emerging brood and the bees returning from their daily work.
Following her scouts, the Queen frequently rests. She will do this several times, before she again sits as MASTER of the Hive.

Just trying out a idea…Looking for some feed back…I also see someone else has a female/bee theme on here, but I think mine is approaching it from a different angle. But if its believed iam takeing his/her ideal ill gladly think off something else. 'sides at this point its only a concept sketch…So…let me know…thanks!

I decided to stay with this concept. and start to flush out the background.

Your pics don’t seem to have uploaded properly & there’s just the small thumbnail images working at the moment, but from these it looks really good- nice figure drawing & I love the earthy tones & transparency in the colour sketch.

The composition is subtle & the colour ‘stripes’ idea is clever, but possibly too subtle for the purposes of this contest I reckon. You should have a go at experimenting with more dynamic layouts, & maybe you could mix some abstracted forms with the realistic figure a la Klimt.

Thank you very much Matt for the kind words and the tips. iam still building up the background hopefully it will start coming together. Iam very new on this site and iam have trouble up-loading a good size picture ( if anyone can point me in the right direction to figure this out, i’d be very grateful )

'Ello 'ello! Joe, thanks for the kind words! Hvala lijepa! Stjepan.

I like the initial idea but I think the viewer might get lost with you character looking like a real woman an those being normal bees. The painting is really good but just work on the connection factor a bit.


#11

Thanks for the input Lamair. A buddy of mine pointed out the samething to me ( people not getting the connection visually ) so iam thinking of changeing somethings …will see.

Your doing a really good job so far, can’t wait to see it finished.


#16

hello there, i like your concept but the woman has to be more distinct as a master to those bees…the framing could be improved by making the figure smaller because the hair and right thumbs are touching the borders…looking forward to your update:thumbsup:


#17

Thanks for the input G-hand! The Queen well expose, divulge, impart, bring out, display, disclose and show her Mastery over the Apis Mellifera
very soon! Stay tune!! :slight_smile: And I know, thouching the borders is a “no no” but in this case I like it. it works for me.


#18

Hello again Fellow artist from all over the world! Did some fleshing out of the Queens skin, and started blocking in the bees.


#19

Cool concept, can’t wait to see the finished image.

Good luck

It is a kind of picturer depending on the technical quality much more than a concept. And of course your technic is perfect. Really nice picture…
