Hive Head by Lizzy-John Hive Head by Lizzy-John
This was just a bit of messing around. It didn't come out particularly well but I wanted to share something from this past week. Trying to be less of a recluse with my work!

You might be wondering: How does that thing stay up?

The shocking reveal: A wizard did it.

Comments, critique, etc. appreciated. :)

this looks amazing, I love the futuristic design of her hat
and the way the outlines contrast the soft painted colour.

I adore you're work, do you have any tutorials or tips on how you work?

Bees have more potential to be cute rather than creepy. I like cute, but creepier is better :)

awesomely interesting visual. i would love to get an understanding of your process. For example do you work completely digitally or do you ink traditionally/then scan/etc.
Reply
:iconlizzy-john:
Lizzy-John Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
Sometimes I do stuff fully digitally, other times I scan in a pencil/pen piece and work on that. This was all digital. Thanks for the kind words :)

Beautiful rendering! The skin seems almost ast plastic´y as the rest of the materials though, everything is rendered in the same way.

hm, I think I have a problem with that sometimes. I'll try to tone down the reflected light and see if that helps. Thanks :)

Aye, same here. I have a tendency to render every material the same way too. I gotta do more studies. :)
Feel free to drop by my gallery and throw in some critique. Would be appreciated!

I'm really enjoying the value variance in the shadows. That background color is very Windows 3.1, but somehow doesn't glare out as a weird hue. Her fingers indenting the flesh of her chest? That's a nice detail.
