Honey for the Queen!
My concept was the Queen Bee and her worker bees bring honey to her. I’ve gotten comments that she looks disgusting and disturbing… which is kinda the direction i wanted to go… being the theme is master and servant. Hm… My thought process… being my character is a Queen bee, I’ve bling’d her up, and portrayed her as a large woman because a queen (in my mind) should be well fed and clothed, and doesnt’ need to maneuver or do much. For her features, I went with the Bee-stung lips and Beehive hairdo… because i felt it enhances her character. the pot of honey was used to link the relationship between the queen and bees. The pot of honey being a central focus to the master and servant relationship in my theme, i’ve decided to use it as a lightsource. The flowers in the backgroudn was actually last minute, i initially wanted the setting to be in a beehive, but i thought the flowers could be a good hangout place for teh bees to get pollen for honey… so it was probably a better direction to go. Had I chose to expand the image, i probably would have placed them on a platform in a hive with flowers behind the throne. I wanted the overall look of the painting to look liek one of those renaissance painting of queens or of that nature. Mine probably doesn’t even come close to those master pieces but i wanted that feel.
All in all, i learned alot from this challenge… and definitely felt i’ve stretched my limits. tho the background didn’t get developed as far as i liked it to but i happy to see where it’s at. Can’t wait for the next one! thanks for all who commented in the thread!
good luck to all!
Now i can get some rest…
