<b>FINAL FINISHED COLORS</b>:<br>
<a href====see preliminary lineart

The full finished final colors for my custom bee themed pony ^_^.

Original prelim lineart photocopied and photocopy mounted on the hard board backing from my vellum pad ^^;. Colored with Dr. Martins dyes, black lytho crayon, and white gel pen, white ink and white acrylic paint, then trimmed to size.

Feels good to use my dyes again. I kind of forgotten how fun and attention grabbing they were. Don't get me wrong, I like digital coloring, but its too easy to get distracted and walk away from a piece. At least with traditional media, you CAN'T really walk away from the piece until a certain section is finished ^^;.

Oh, and still hunting for a new name for her.. any suggestions?

Deetris 2005-02-11 10:08:40 Why not calling him Hunny Youknow... because of the hunny behind him. Ah youknow nevermind. That name is cheezy :S
Def Character 2005-02-11 10:15:00 No Bumble Bee but Pony Bee or Sugar Bee...
paper-samurai 2005-02-11 13:17:50 *singing*my little pony's,my little pony's..!! She looks yummie:) The chinee's have a saying,if it has four legs and it isnt a table,you can eat it. So she would probably taste like honey^_^
Tom 2005-02-11 14:09:43 aaaargh! goddamn, i always hated those pony's ( especially the dutch version ) but this one looks very nice :) the colours are warm, and the design is also good :)
NikA 2005-02-11 14:10:47 bee chan! it is so good to see you back! the pony looks absolutely adorable <3 i love the hair's highlites. I totally agree with you about digital coloring and traditional media. Nice to see you back here ^-^
Marius 2005-02-11 20:59:03 Well, everybody said it already but I'll say it again: looks very great! :D In particulary the bg looks very good ^^ The bling-bling is a very nice touch :P
Mactire 2005-02-12 14:45:09 Lovely Bee^_^
Bee-chan 2005-02-12 15:44:07 ^W^ Thank you everyone!

Hmmm... Hunny or Sugar Bee... those two are actually pretty good names for her ^_^. And yep, maybe expect more pony art for me... My Little Pony are my happy crack X3.
AIKUZA 2005-02-13 22:26:32 I'm not surprised too see My little Pony fanart. I recently saw some other ones. It's cool, altough it's still a pony.... :P
Deetris 2005-02-19 13:08:00 Oww I see now I spelled honey wrong. How could that bee XD. Japanese words for Honey are: hani or hachimitsu. Mabe that's some help ;)

Random art
I wanted to share the latest piece of my comic... it's not manga and it has absolutely no quality at all but i hope it's at least funny :P

This is Shiro, a demon from a manga I just recently started drawing (still untitled). This is my first time posting art on the internet, so comments are greatly appreciated. ^_^

Remake of the first picture in my   gallery   http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-   130695.html which was done two   years ago, when I was 14. I wanted to   see how much I improved ^_^

My OC, Haley Esther (who is subject   of good 1/4 of my drawings, but haven't   thought of a story nor solid character   design for him yet, I probably never   will) playing around with things on his   messy bed.

This picture   took me so much time, holy- little   details with pencil crayons is death.   X_X

Done with Prismacolor   markers and pencils, as usual. I like   how I left the pants open, it says a lot   about the character I'm thinking of O_o
Kkachi
Finished... its not perfect but i like it,
5_Deadly_Venoms
Just a quick drawing that I did. I sketch my pictures then I ink them and then scan them. I know this one is simple, but I'd like to know what other people thing. Critiques would also be appreciated! Or on a scale from 1 to 10 or something, thanks!
Inky
Another realistic art, I know, I know, I shouldn't be uploading this tipe of art, but I'm kind of proud of this one. It's a portrait of Orlando Bloom
gothqueen

My OC Xik
well not really.
its a Vector painting of ME dressed UP like my OC Xik. odd, isn't it? we look similar... but she has freckles and her hair is a little different from mine. so TECHNICALLY this is a picture of meee, but.. im.. cosplaying my OC I guess? idunno.
Xaiyu-Chan
a drawing of my sister, it took me hours to finish this (@.@) i couldn't scan it because it was too big so i took a photo \(^.^)/
