Been a while since I did a WIP so thought this would be a good one. I got some bee references from @DavidG recently and am giving this one a go. Golden high flow, Iwata Micron and art card, because it textures easily! I used some moss green and put in the background, used a stencil around a few of the flowers to get the sharper edges. I left the wings mostly unpainted but with enough paint for me to add some shapes. I sketched the wing detail in with a scalpel then used sepia to go along the edges and added some of the thicker lines that make up the main structure. I added some spots for the yellow pollen going on later.
