    I had a request from someone to paint a bee, this is my first attempt. There are a few bits I'm not too happy with. I think the wings were the most difficult thing to get right. I decided to go without a background but might try one with some sort of perhaps out of focus background next time.

    This is with Createx Wicked paints onto mild steel painted with white rattle can paint from the pound shop.

    Looks great! I agree that the wings could profit from a bit finer lines, but the initial impression the picture gives is great.

    Yes, I was struggling a bit with that, tip dry and such. I thought about making a stencil with some cuts in paper but wanted to have a bash at doing it freehand. Keep practicing I guess :)

    This is my SBS video for the bee. I might try this again at some point and try and make a better job of the wings.

    Great job...nice video too, just got done watching it. Totally forgot you lived in the UK and wasn't expecting your accent. I especially liked your still shot intro thought that was nice

    Thanks! The intro was done a while ago because a lot of my videos are about our motorhome travels.
